is this compatible with d5200? Mar 29, 2014
Allan, yes it will work perfectly with the D5200. It is an very good lens that has sharp, fast focus throughout the f-stop range. I just came back from two weeks in Africa and it was almost the only lens I used day and night because it is so fast (f/2.8). Very rugged pro lens construction that has successfully made three Africa trips, Nepal, Morocco and the Sahara, Patagonia and Cape Horn all without any issues including internal dust from the zoom mechanism. The only negative is the weight. For me, it is worth it for the confidence that I will get the shots. Hope that helps.
At $2600 this had better be the VR-II although the photo shows the older VR model which should be around $1200 Nov 24, 2013
This IS most likely a VRII lens. It does picture the original VR lens but I tried to get a VR I from them a few months ago and they sent me a VRII. I let Amazon and Electronics Basket know about the error but it seems not much was done about it. Here is a link to my review.... http://www.amazon.com/Nikon-70-200mm-Nikkor-Digital-Cameras/product-reviews/B00009MDBQ/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_pop_hist_1?ie=UTF8&filterBy=addOneStar&showViewpoints=0
What is the best Nikon flash unit to use with the Nikon 70-200 ED-IF VR lens? Will the SB800 pair with it? Jun 16, 2014
I had just purchased the SB800 when the 900 came out. Always happens that way. I have used the SB800 and it works somewhat well but understand that a lens with this focal length will require a flash that really brings it! I use this lens for landscape and sports photography, daylight shooting, because that 2.8 glass really lets the light in. I might suggest going directly to Nikon and asking them to show their hand on this one. I am going to try it as well. Are you shooting in Aperature and Manual modes? this will also let you control the amount of light you will need for your pix to really come out nice.
is this an fx lense Jan 29, 2014
This lens will work on both DX and FX cameras. Even if your DX camera doesn't have an auto focus motor, the lens has (IF) which means internal focus. On an FX camera the focal distance is 70-200 but in a DX is 105-300 due to the crop factor of the DX sensor. I use this lense on a D7000 which is a DX and love it. Hope this helps
Is glass this good kinda' wasted on a consumer-grade frame like the D5500. Thx in advance Jan 16, 2015
Definitely not! This, by far, has been my best lens purchase. I bought this for my D3100, & it works wonders. I've used it for a wedding & several shoots. It's never let me down. I use it witH my d7100 & it does just as well. Great first glass purchase.
Yes, this lens will work great with a D3s.
Yes. This lens would be a great addition to any kit.
