Nikon 200mm f/2G IF-ED AF-S VR

200f2
Review Date: May 16, 2013 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $3,500.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Fast AF, wallet wrecking IQ and background blur (don't try it unless you can afford to buy one). Probably best Nikon lens out there. Retains high resale value.
Cons:
OEM lens foot is inadequate. Plan to purchase a longer foot for better balance on a tripod and better carry. Weight is all a matter of what you are used to.

People wonder why go to the expense and trouble (size/weight) when you can get a good 200mm effect with the 70-200/2.8 or 70-200/4. You won't wonder anymore when you have tried this lens. I would rather carry a heavy lens giving great IQ than a lighter lens of lesser quality. I rented before buying....but bought very soon thereafter.

Calling this gem "Stubby" is demeaning. She is a beauty in my eyes.
