Product Code: 3243260Z
The Nikkor Z 70-200mm VR S lens for mirrorless Z-mount is the next professional workhorse telephoto zoom lens from Nikon to feature leading SR glass and premium optical design for stills and video.


Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S Lens

Nikon are forging ahead with mirrorless lens options for Z-mount with the release of the Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S telephoto zoom. This workhorse focal width plays a major role in professional and enthusiast requirements being so versatile for a host of subjects, from sports and action to portraits, weddings, reportage or landscapes.

The 70-200 lens incorporates Nikon’s new SR glass as well as ED elements to minimise chromatic aberration. As a result colour fringing is excellently controlled, images are sharper than achievable before and contrast is exceptional for both stills and video. For videographers focus breathing has all but been eliminated and electromagnetic aperture control allows a more natural change of exposure while recording. Autofocus is smooth, silent and quick, allowing this lens to perform in situations demanding silent capture such as weddings or wildlife. 

Professional grade Z mount telephoto zoom lens. Covering the versatile 70-200 mm focal range with a constant bright f/2.8 aperture.

Superb optical performance. Sharpness and contrast are exceptional throughout the entire frame. Focusing is smooth, fast, and virtually silent.

Advanced optics. Designed with 21 elements in 18 groups, incorporating ED glass and SR elements as well as anti-reflective ARNEO and Nano Crystal coatings.

Video Ready. With this lens design, focus breathing is all but eliminated, and stable aperture control delivers natural exposure changes throughout the scene when recording.

OLED lens information panel. Users will love the ability to quickly confirm aperture, focus distance, focal length, ISO, and depth of field on the lens itself.

Lens function button. This useful addition allows photographers to assign as many as 21 different functions to the Fn button, from AF lock to metering to bracketing. 

Our Verdict

Nikon have pulled out all of the stops with the introduction of their Z-mount mirrorless zoom lens. The 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S is an important milestone and includes innovative, useful features such as the OLED panel, electromagnetic aperture control and a host of pro grade glass. Results are second to none, with edge to edge sharpness, natural colour and rich detailed images straight out of camera.  

Decades of experience in designing world class optics have culminated in the Nikkor Z 70-200mm offering and the Z-mount provides one of the shortest flange distances in the mirrorless market. The inclusion of newly designed S-line elements, a more compact, lighter chassis and superb focussing make this a must have lens for any Nikon mirrorless shooters.

We Love
  • Advanced optics with premium results
  • Lens settings information available at a glance on the OLED panel
  • Useful function button to access quick settings
  • Excellent video lens with silent, quick focus
  • Fast bright optics and vibration reduction

Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S Lens Key Specifications

The Nikkor optics incorporated in this telephoto provide professional level results through Nikon’s most advanced optical engineering practices. The optics are designed with 21 elements in 18 groups (including 6 ED glass, 2 aspherical lens, 1 fluorite and 1 SR lens element). This ensures the best possible results consistently, with high contrast and low aberrations, including well controlled colour fringing. Vibration reduction helps with capturing sharp results even when handheld although the included tripod mount will be essential for certain applications. 

A constant bright aperture allows photographers to shoot in low light situations and focusing is achieved through an internal focus stepping motor system (STM) even in difficult situations. The nine bladed aperture provides smooth out of focus bokeh areas when the lens is open and weather sealing allows work to continue whatever the conditions. Glass elements have Nano Crystal coatings applied as well as an ARNEO coat conceived with Nikon’s mirrorless mount. A fluorine coated front lens element helps to reduce smears or dirt on images. 

This is capable of extremely close focus at just 50cm (1.64’) allowing photographers to shoot even more creatively. The compact size and weight at around 22cm long at 1.3kg. allows users to bring this lens to virtually any assignment as well as for all day shooting, including landscape or nature photography. A common 77mm filter thread size ensures existing filters can be used with this lens, including Nikon’s own brand variants.
