Recently, I had a photo shoot with the new Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII.

Here is a test shot taken right before the photo shoot. The shot was taken handheld to test the

  • response of the AF – I didn’t have any problem with the AF. It was fast and accurate even during low light in the evening. I didn’t recall any long AF hunting.
  • sharpness of the lens – the 100% crop image speaks for itself
  • VRII – I did notice the difference between VRII and VR. Camera shake is less apparent even at low shutter speed.

I have also noted my first impression of the lens here.

The settings were f/4, ISO 400, 1/125s, f=200mm

Here is a 100% crop on the eye straight out of the camera. Amazingly, you can find three people in this image. One with the camera, one with a reflector and the model herself.
