Nikon Unveils New VR II 18-200mm, 70-200m Nikkor Zooms

Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 ED VR II and 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II telephoto zoom lenses

Together with the D300s’ announcement, Nikon today introduced the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 ED VR II and the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II telephoto zoom lenses, both featuring Vibration Reduction (VR II) image stabilization.

Nikon said the 18-200mm, the company’s best-selling premium high-ratio zoom ever, offers enthusiasts excellent versatility. The 70-200mm f/2.8, now benefiting from Nikon’s exclusive Nano Crystal Coat, retains its status as a preeminent choice for discerning professionals in a multitude of shooting disciplines.

Both of these lenses use Nikon’s VR II image stabilization technology, according to the company, which is optimized to function most effectively for each lens design to substantially reduce camera shake-related image blur. Nikon claims VR II allows photographers to shoot handheld at as many as four shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible.
