Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II Review by Mark Goldstein at the Photography Blog: Premium build, optics, and price. Weight too.

Mark tested the lens with a Nikon D4 full-frame Dslr body.

"The lens' sharpness is excellent at most focal lengths and f-stops. Edge sharpness is also commendably good, only requiring stopping-down to f/5.6 to get acceptable results. Distortion is well-controlled, chromatic aberrations are only really conspicuous by their almost complete absence, and the lens exhibits pleasingly rounded bokeh thanks to the 9-blade aperture. All in all, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/4G ED VR delivers great results throughtout its zoom range. So the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/4G ED VR offers a versatile focal range, fast maximum aperture, well-implemented Vibration Reduction system, fast auto-focus and excellent build quality and weather-proofing. Sure, it's big and heavy, but it does offer a compelling combination of versatility, durability

and great image quality that will appeal to professional Nikon FX-users, especially if you need (or desire) that appealingly fast f/2.8 maximum aperture."
