Heavy, expensive and so j-a cruel! Seductive sharpness even wide open, crappy-looking bokeh and VR that really works. 1 / 30s at 200mm no problem!
Impressive telephoto zoom!
Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f / 2.8 G ED VR II
(Focal range DX-format equivalent: 105-300 mm)
This is one of the best Nikon telephoto zoom with focal length range 70-200 mm and many professional photographers zoom favorite because of its versatility.
It has good brightness, excellent sharpness, and features such as image stabilization, fast and silent ultrasonic focus motor which means it is ideal for sports, nature photography, portrait photography ...
A key feature is the build quality of the lens. Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f / 2.8 G ED VR II is built of metal / plastic construction combined with a weather-sealed metal lens mount, nine rounded aperture blades and sealing against moisture and dust. This means that the lens can withstand use in adverse weather conditions and demanding environments.
Image stabilization is Nikon's VR II technology generation, which means that image stabilization can handle up to 3 stops slower shutter speed than you normally are able to provide camera. This means that you can get sharp images only down at 1/30 sec at 200 mm instead of 1 / 250s. Nikon's VR technology also senses if you pan and then stops trying to stabilize sideways movement, but only in height. A very good feature!
Autofocus is very fast. I've used the Nikon AF-S 70-200mm f / 2.8 G ED VR II with my Nikon D750 camera and think that this telephoto zoom has impressive autofocus performance, and superb image quality.

Nikon 70-200 / 2.8G VR II offers excellent performance throughout the zoom range with a graceful contrast and sharpness. Fast and accurate AF, large and constant F2.8 aperture that hedge exposure times for fast-moving action and motives for excellent sharpness, a robust zoom lens with vädertätnings the best professionals work.
However, it also has its drawbacks. The most prominent is the high price, not to mention the size and weight (but also other zoom lens 70-200 / f / 2.8 is in this price range, weight and size). There are no shortcuts around this, you get what you pay for. It is a professional Nikon 70-200 / f / 2.8 G VR II zoom lens, with very good performance and construction characteristics to keep in any situation.
Picture quality is on top. For me, this zoom lens delivering sharp images in nearly a year and I hope it will continue to stay that way for many years.
All this serves clearly to be recommended, if your budget and muscles can carry it / it.
Something else review rating than top-notch Nikon 70-200 / f / 2.8 G VR II is unthinkable!
Crisp, fast autofocus and very good WR.
Oh, oh I just say! Updated me from Tamron 70-200 and may well just admit, you get what you pay for :)
As several others have already posted sharpness is sick, almost disgusting crisp, edge-to-edge sharpness is startling good (on DX is not at all soft in focus left / right, could not answer how it behaves on FX) but then there are many other things that weigh up to this lens.
* The focus, it is blazing fast, quiet and sure. Chasing NEVER, but it is very accurate.
* VR II can not be without when you started using it, let me go down 4 steps in shutter speed WITHOUT motion blur. Did not actually VR would be so useful but it's like I said Divine, 200mm 1/60s, says it all!?
* Construction is outperformance, full magnesium alloy and in addition also weather sealed. To be in this size of lens so one can always clearly expect to be great but I still think that Nikon managed to surpass themselves in the design, it is after all the standards in any way easy, the compact. Compared this with the Canon 70-200 IS II and Nikon are much more professional built. Just be aware that it is heavy lump, just over 1.5kg :)
The only IF you must carp down on anything, it is that Nikon "skimp" with motljuskyddet ... Even my 17-55 has "maffigare 'hood, no, but in all cases more substantial.
In addition, you have the money and feel you want to take my photography to a new level, why have not you bought it yet?
It does not get better. Sharp from full aperture, fast AF, nice background blur, solid construction. Do nothing bad and then it has to be a ten.
The only downside is perhaps that it is a bit cumbersome to carry around but it's a feature you will not get away when it comes to this sort of lens.
