An already legendary fast-aperture Zoom-NIKKOR has been skillfully reengineered to meet the needs of higher resolution D-SLRs and more discriminating photographers. The new AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II incorporates seven ED glass elements in a newly developed optical system and now features Nikon's exclusive Nano Crystal Coat to virtually eliminate internal reflections, enhancing saturation and overall image quality.
