Nikon 200 2.8 AFS VR11

16 02 2010

I purchased this lens when it was released by Nikon. This lens is super sharp across the frame on all apertures. The contrast is better than the older version of this lens as well. The basketball photo was taken with this lens and a Nikon D3 body. Settings as follows: 3200 asa,shutter speed 800s at 2.8.

This proved to be a great combination for basketball,focus speed seems a little faster too.I shot a few frames using the 200 f2 and found it hard to see a difference between the two lenses. All in all very pleased with this purchase.

Basketball photos can be viewed and purchased from the following link:
