The OLED screen on the top of the lens barrel can be set to display the focal length, aperture or depth-of-field and focus distance, and is visible in the dark. The ability to assess the relationship between depth-of-field and focus distance is particularly useful when shooting video, given that many filmmakers favour manual focus.
Focus breathing has been almost entirely eliminated from the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S, resulting in virtually no changes to focal length, angle of view and magnification when focusing. Further video-centric features include high-precision iris control, so that exposure adjustments when recording are reproduced very naturally.
The near-silent customisable control ring can be assigned to aperture, ISO or exposure compensation, allowing you to control your preferred setting without removing your eye from the EVF. The NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S boasts two function keys (L-Fn and L-Fn2). Each button can be assigned one of 21 different functions, including subject tracking, which is useful when photographing fast-moving sports and wildlife subjects.
Whether you’re a professional sports, wildlife or wedding photographer or completing your ‘holy trinity’, the NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S provides professionals and enthusiasts a feature-rich S-line telephoto lens with outstanding imaging potential.
