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

Postby Ant1 » Wed Jun 02, 2010 3:04 am

Just a few quick samples taken with the new, updated, Nikkor 70-200mm f2.8 VRII to show what it can do. I only got it a few days ago, so excuse the lack of artistry here :)
Shots taken mostly at around 200mm, no post-processing except some cropping in some pictures. Watch for sharpness, detail and colour rendition, and the beautiful bokeh, of course!... Camera is Nikon D300s.

With the new Nikkor teleconverter TC-20E III Aspherical

Postby Ant1 » Fri Jun 11, 2010 1:22 am

Just got this new teleconverter today - not to be confused with the "II" version. THis new one has got some pretty good reviews and is creating a bit of a storm within the Nikon community. So here are some very quick shots taken in my garden at 200mm a few hours after I got it. From what I see, it looks like a winner to me. No PP at all except a little bit of cropping to bring out the subject.

Seems to be just as sharp as my 105 vr macro.


Very nice detail coming from a zoom. Nikon ftw! :D

There's a caveat I should mention regarding the performance of the TC-20E III. I have come across a comment suggesting that the performance of the TC-20E III must be judged at it's wide-open setting, i.e. f5.6 on a f2.8 zoom like the 70-200mm VRII. At f11, for instance,the gentleman in question mentioned that even the older model TC-20E II (not III) was producing good results. So unless this new TC III can produce good results at f5.6, it is not substantially better than the older model (again, according to the person I mentioned earlier).

The photos I posted were taken on program mode and the camera chose f7.1 through to f13. So, is the TC-20E III sharp from f5.6 through to f7.1 then? I don't know. I'll do more tests soon to see.

I just tried one out yesterday in the local dealer (12,500AED = $3400US!!!!!!!) - I'd never pay what the dealer asks in Dubai, but it sure is impressive at f2.8, 200mm and 1/15th second!
