Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S Lens

The Nikon Z 70-200mm F2.8 VR S Lens is a versatile telephoto lens with a bright f/2.8 aperture for sports, event and portrait photographers.

The fast maximum aperture suits working in available lighting conditions and also affords increased control over depth of field for isolating subjects with selective focus. The optical design incorporates a series of ED, fluorite, and SR elements, which help to reduce colour fringing and chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range for improved clarity and colour accuracy. Additionally, ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats, as well as a Super Integrated Coating, have been applied to suppress flare, ghosting, and surface reflections for improved contrast and colour fidelity.

Complementing the optical design, a multi-focus system, which employs two stepping motors, helps to realise impressively fast, accurate, and quiet focus performance, along with full-time manual focus override, to suit both stills and video needs. Vibration Reduction further complements making sharp images by reducing the appearance of camera shake when shooting handheld. The lens also has a unique physical design, which incorporates a top OLED information panel that can be used to quickly confirm aperture and focus settings, and an assignable L.Fn button permits making exposure and settings adjustments via the lens. Additionally, a programmable control ring can be set for intuitive adjustment over a variety of camera and exposure settings.

  • Z-Mount Lens/FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • ED, SR, and Fluorite Elements
  • ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coatings

This Versatile zoom is designed for FX-format Z-mount mirrorless cameras, but can also be used with DX-format models where it provides a 105-300mm equivalent focal length range.

Obsession for details. Uncompromising Zoom.

The highly-desirable Nikon 70-200mm telephoto zoom lens has come to the Z series. Sports, concerts, weddings, wildlife, portraiture and so much more — all with the incredible low light performance of an f/2.8 made only better by the optically superior Z mount. Optical advancements including parfocal support for passionate cinematographers and videographers. Class-leading close focus ability. Superior aberration suppression. And the most comprehensive optical VR image stabilisation in the history of NIKKOR interchangeable lenses. The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S sets an impressive new standard for fast telephoto zoom lenses optimised for the next generation of Nikon's advanced mirrorless cameras.

S-Line: NIKKOR quality at its absolute best

At the top of the ever-expanding NIKKOR Z lens lineup, S-Line lenses push Nikon’s tradition of optical excellence and innovation to unprecedented new heights. Superior performance and resolution. Sophisticated features and operability. Specialised technologies and reliability enhancements. All while taking full advantage of the monumental Nikon Z mount and adhering to the strictest image quality and build standards.

Class-leading close focusing

For greater framing versatility, the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S is capable of extremely short minimum focusing distances, allowing the lens' speed and performance enhancements to be realised in remarkably tight shooting scenarios. At 70mm, focus can be achieved as close as 0.5m from the subject, virtually unheard of in a telephoto zoom of this focal range.

The finest of details

The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S captures astoundingly sharp images with captivating resolution and glorious clarity all the way to the edges of the frame. It's superior VR performance ensures exceptional sharpness when shooting handheld. And to combat colour fringing while close focusing, an all-new multi-focusing system delivers fast, accurate autofocusing while drastically reducing aberrations.

Parfocal performance

For cinematographers who prefer to manually focus, the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S beautifully maintains sharp focus on a subject while zooming in or out. Parfocal lenses also virtually eliminate focus breathing for smooth focus transitions that don't change the apparent angle of view.

Smooth, fast and quiet autofocus

Powered by an ultra-quiet stepping motor (STM), autofocusing is fast, silent and incredibly accurate. Where camera noise can be distracting or problematic — street photography, wedding ceremonies, wildlife or on video productions — STM is a silent partner.

Superior colour and sharpness

Ultimate aberration correction — virtually zero flare, ghosting, coma or chromatic, spherical and axial aberrations, even at the far edges of the frame. A new SR (Short-wavelength Refractive) glass element further combats chromatic aberrations caused by challenging short-wavelength light.

Brilliant in low light

The exceptional combination of a bright f/2.8 aperture, high-resolution NIKKOR optics and the brilliant Z mount makes the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S a tireless low light performer capable of clean, sharp images and faster shutter speeds in dark scenes and interiors.

Frame-filling brightness

One of the many advantages of the larger Z mount is its ability to retain even illumination, especially at the corners of the frame, for bright, even exposures with minimal vignetting.

Blurred so beautifully

Attached to the Z Mount, the largest full-frame lens mount in the industry, the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S is capable of producing stunning bokeh qualities beyond the capabilities of comparable lenses.

Steadier than ever

With built-in optical VR image stabilisation effective for up to an unprecedented 5.5 stops* and Z series' high-performance in-body image stabilisation, tack-sharp images are easily achieved when shooting handheld. During video shooting, additional electronic VR (e-VR) can be enabled for even greater stability.


The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S is a remarkable lens for video applications. Parfocal support for maintaining manual focus while zooming. Smooth, silent AF with virtually no focus breathing. Standard 77mm filter support. Superior optical image stabilisation combines with the camera's* in-body image stabilisation and Electronic VR. All of this added to the versatility of the highly useful 70-200mm focal range.

*In-body image stabilisation not available in all Z series cameras.

Customisable control ring

The control ring can be used for quiet aperture control (great for iris transitions during video recording or situations where complete silence is critical), exposure compensation or ISO adjustments.

Customisable shortcut buttons

The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S features two convenient customisable Fn buttons right on the lens barrel. Set them to streamline your shooting experience — preview depth of field, lock focus, magnify to confirm focus and more.

Lens information panel

A dimmable, built-in EL (Electroluminescent) display panel allows quick, convenient confirmation of aperture, focal length, focus distance and depth-of-field, even in dark situations.

Optimal anti-reflective performance

When subjects are backlit, incidental light can streak across the frame causing unwanted ghosting, reflections and flare. To counteract these anomalies and ensure crisp, clean images, the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S employs two of Nikon’s most advanced lens coatings: Nano Crystal Coat for eliminating incidental light from a diagonal direction and ARNEO Coat for eliminating incidental light from a vertical direction.

Dust and Drip resistant

Extensively sealed to keep dust and moisture out, especially around all moving parts of the lens barrel, for worry-free durability.

Fluorine keeps it clean

Fluorine Coat, Nikon's proprietary dust, dirt and moisture repellent, provides enhanced antifouling performance, ensuring easy removal of all types of grime from the lens surface — a life-saver when shooting in harsh conditions.

Next-Generation Z Design and Optics

Designed and optimised to take full advantage of the Z system's larger mount, Z lenses gather substantially more light, providing even illumination and improved sharpness from the centre of the frame to the far edges. Autofocusing is fast and quiet. Video recording is clean and smooth with highly minimised focus breathing and reduced wobbling. Intuitive on-lens controls can be customised to your individual shooting style and so much more. Z lenses are designed with a sense of consistency that combines reliability and beauty with next-dimension optical performance for complete freedom in image creation.

Great Lens

Show Details

For Nikon Z mount users needing the 70-200mm focal range, this is the way to go. Silent and Fast Autofocus, optically sharp, great colour retention, and works well with the 1.4 Z TC. Very good at f/2.8 wide open. VR depends on the camera you use, however, this is very good on my Z6II.

Designed for Optical Perfection

On good authority I have it that you have to start with a disclaimer - so I am not paid by Nikon, nor am I a Nikon Ambassador (although I see myself as a non-official one) ???? This lens is made for the Z system, and being the native lens it excels in every aspect from being super sharp edge to edge, so silent when focusing that you actually have to check that it is working, accurate and quick focus. And the bokeh - Oh my word!!!! I used to own the Nikon Z 70-200mm f2.8 VR which was my go-to lens, and this lens has exceeded my expectations. Well worth the close to 12 month's wait!
With the combined body and lens stabilisation, I shoot comfortably handheld at 1/30s.
If you own a Z camera - this is a great investment!
