Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II

"I've owned this lens for two weeks and couldn't be happier. I've shot images of dogs running full speed and the focus keeps up with them. I've also shot some humans at 150mm @1/30th sec. and they are as sharp as could be. I am 100% happy with this lens."

Nikon Nikkor  180mm f/2.8D ED-IF

"I consider this lens Nikon's best kept secret. It handles like a 135mm prime. I have to remember that this is a longer focal length lens and that I must bump up my shutter speeds accordingly. It is so easy to forget that in the field because the size is so handy. It feels smaller than it really is. I"

Nikon Nikkor AF-S 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II

"I use this lens on the D3s and it is absolutely amazing with this camera for sports. There are many other uses besides sports, but all I can say is the sharpness, fast focus and image quality is the best I have ever seen independent of cost. There are many other more technical reviews out there so I wanted to tell you from a real-world perspective that this lens will produce top-notch professional results for any level (pro, college, high school, etc) day after day."
