|Introduction | Nikkor AF-S Nikkor 200mm f/2G ED VR II lens performance | Nikkor AF-S Nikkor 200mm f/2G ED VR II versus competition | Conclusion|
If we compare the ultra-high speed 200mm f/2.0 model against the firm’s f/2.8 telephotos the lens is the best performer of the three. That said, all three are outstanding performers. Regardless of focal length, there will be no disappointments.
We’ve not yet measured the equivalent Canon EF 200mm f/2.0L IS USM model but comparing the lens with the Nikon AF Micro-Nikkor 200mm f/4D ED-IF reveals some interesting facts, even if the two lenses are designed for different roles. First, the 200mm f/2.0 is much sharper. In fact the 19P-Mpix Sharpness score of the Micro-Nikkor on the D800 is a little disappointing.
Second, the Micro-Nikkor has extremely low Chromatic Aberration.
