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

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.
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.
