And speaking of Nikon...
Nikon has just announced its latest lens to its family of fine glass, the 70-200mm f/4G ED AF-S VR.
This is an excellent piece of glass and is essentially the baby brother (or sister) to the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G AF-S VR II Nikkor ED-IF.
This new lens is about 45% less expensive ($1399 vs. $2399) but shares many of the same quality characteristics of the 70-200 2.8 bigger (more expensive) brother.
Here are three resources you where you can learn even more:
1. You can head over to Photography Life and see a side by side comparison of these two lenses.
2. Check out why Ken Rockwell said that if you are looking for a Nikon FX zoom lens, then this "is the lens".
3. Visit the Nikon page for more product details along with their "Compare Tool" (it's at the bottom right of the page).
The 70-200mm f/4G ED AF-S VR can be pre-ordered now and will be shipping very soon.
