Nikon Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S lens tested at DxOMark


DxOMark published their test results of the Nikon Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S lens. The lens scored 38 points, which is excellent for a 70-200mm and is just 1 point short of the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM OSS:


The Nikkor Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S lens showed excellent, but more importantly very consistent sharpness. Here is DxOMark’s conclusion:

“Over the years, 70-200 mm f/2.8 lenses have become one the most important products in a manufacturer’s lineup, as its performance is considered a barometer for the rest of the high-end lenses in the system. As such they’re regularly updated and feature the latest optical advances, so it’s unsurprising to see the Nikkor Z 70-200mm F2.8 VR S easily outperform the old 2009 AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm F2.8 ED VR II, which is now two generations behind. With the new SR element backing up the fluorite and ED elements, the new Nikkor Z 70-200mm F2.8 VR S is a great performer optically and is a fine addition to the Z system overall. If sports, wildlife, photojournalism, or even portraiture is your thing, it would make a great choice.

In this review, we have compared the Nikon Nikkor Z 70-200mm F2.8 VR S mounted on a Nikon Z7 to its closest rivals from other brands. Remember that the lenses may be used on various cameras with different sensors, or in some cases on different camera systems using different mounts, so the results will vary between them.”
