The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200 mm f/ 2.8 G IF ED VR II is a constant lens speed telephoto zoom, equipped with an optical stabilizer, for Nikon F cameras.
As compared to its predecessor -the AF-S Nikkor 70-200 mm f/ 2.8 G IF ED VR, it shows excellent results on full frame cameras. This lens is equipped with the system of Vibration Reduction II, which is claimed to provide the equivalent of shooting at shutter speeds up to four (with VRII) stops faster in handheld situations (according to the rule of a thumb, without image stabilizer exposure must be not less than 1/focal length). According to the reviews, VR II secures the equivalent of shooting at shutter speeds up to 2 - 3 faster at most.
Equivalent focal length: 105 - 300 mm.
