Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
IF Lens
IF Lens
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

Great performance in suboptimal conditions Perfect light, perfect setting, and perfect subject composition usually leads to a great photo. Even simple equipment can acquire a special photo in those conditions. However, how photo equipment performs under "stress" when light, subject matter and setting do not cooperate separates high quality from the rest. This lens is just that: an exceptional zoom lens is true to form when everything is just rights, and works hard for you when everything is not. It is fast to zoom and focus, easy to use hand held (nice balance/weight distribution), produces high quality photos at high ISO and is rugged. The attached photos are not my best by no means, but they were taken at an ISO of 1600, 15 rows up from the ice through the glass for one and protective netting for the other at f 2.8 and 4.0 respectively. It's a work horse lens covering a very useful range (70-200mm) for sports and just out and about. July 25, 2015
Incredibly Versatile Lens I have had this lens about three weeks now and I have already used it in a variety of settings—outdoors, in a church, in studio—with terrific results. Focus is quick, bokeh is stunning at wider apertures, and my images are super sharp. Owning this lens has been a "dream" of mine for a long time, and now that I actually have one, it is definitely a dream come true. Thinking ahead to other uses, I am even thinking of a teleconverter to extend my range at outdoor sports events; taking this to f4 (1.4x) or f5.6 (2x) will still be fantastic in outdoor light for things like motorsports, field sports, cycling. I have been a Nikon user since I was a teen in the 1980s, and this is by far the best piece of Nikon kit I have owned; in terms of "love" for a lens, it rivals the 300mm f2.8 that I have rented from time-to-time with great results. While the 70-200 f2.8 is a pricey lens, if you are an amateur/hobbiest thinking about it then save the money, you won't regret it. If you're a pro, like I'm working on becoming, you already know why you want/need this lens. It's worth the investment. May 9, 2015
gorgeous lens!!! I just bought this lens about a week ago and just shot it for the first time.. it is AMAZING!! It focuses so fast. I'll be using it for most of my outdoor photoshoots! April 1, 2015
Great Lens Great Lens, Heavy, Very Sharp, 2.8 so it helps me to work better in sports and low light conditions. February 5, 2015
Great Lens I own the original version of the 70-200mm telephoto lens and use it with a D810. About all I can say is that it is an incredible lens. I take photos of wild life at various distances with VR on or off and the results are amazing. Zooming in during post edit can bring out perfect eyes, strands of fir/feathers, perfect patterns on butterfly wings, etc. I can't imagine that the second version of this lens can possibly be better. This is a great piece of glass and is well worth the money. November 15, 2014
