p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Sample variations 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II AF-S?


Has anyone here encountered sample variations on a new Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II AF-S that led them to exchange it for another? Something a like a soft corner, etc.

I'm considering upgrading from an 80-200 AF-S.

Thank you.

The answer is yes. The common cause, according to Nikon, is the misalignment of some internal elements.

Impact damage...seriously I've had 2 copies and both were/are top notch.

I've personally never heard of any issues with this lens.

I got one from B&H a few weeks ago. It was slightly soft on the left side whilst being tack sharp in the center and on the right. Left softness was visible on computer monitor at 1:2 or 1:1 enlargement, but invisible on a 6"x9" printed image. I never made a big print. Returned it. Thinking of getting one again, but this time from local dealer---there goes the $300 rebate into local sales tax---just so that returns, if needed, will be easier.

I've yet to see any lens made without sample variation. It's fairly rare with Nikon 70-200, less than 2% we can detect, and we test every copy straight out of the box pretty thoroughly.

Thank you for the replies.

Back in the day, circa '88, I picked up one of the new Nikkor 80-200 AF lenses.
On first use it started oozing something from the push-pull ring.

I brought it back to the store and the response from the guys there was, "Demon lens! Demon lens!"
