I choked hard paying out £1,650ish for the first one. After that nikon lens prices have gone stratospheric and Iíve never bought a lens of theirs since. Lots of amateurs bought the VRI and II 70-200 but with this price tag this time Iím not so sure they will. This will only be worse for us Brits too with the current exchange rate, £3k+ wouldnít surprise me and no way is a non-exotic generic Nikon zoom worth that to most.

Iíll hang on to my VRII until sigma get their zooms to a nikon beating level or I switch to mirrorless. Sonyís lens prices might be pretty mad atm but the performance looks to raise the bar significantly.

How could it possibly be better than the last version?


Itís a good lens but very far from perfect. Even an average prime at most lengths handily beats it in IQ until stopped down a few.

Still, nothing any client is going to notice in wedding pictures!

I wonder if it will have the same focus breathing as the VR II. I think I read that when you zoom all the way to 200 and focus at portrait length, it only delivers around 135. I don't use the 70-200, so not a first hand account.


I wouldn't call 4ft portrait distance but yeah, it can be a pain.
