Nikon has just announced a new, highly sought-after, lens: the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200 f/4G ED VR. The 70-200 f/4 is a lighter “brother” of the pro-grade 70-200 f/2.8.
Highlights of this lens are a constant maximum aperture of f/4 throughout the 2.9x zoom range and a new VR system, stabilising up to 5 stops (previous systems stabilised up to 4 stops).
The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR will be available in late November 2012 for a suggested retail price of $1,399.95. Nikon also offers an optional Tripod Collar, available in the near future for a suggested retail price of $223.95.
