The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II is a high-end external telephoto lens designed specifically for serious and professional grade photography; Nikon lists it's uses as such; sports, photojournalism, and outdoor/wildlife photography. The NIKKOR 70-200mm ED VR II model includes what Nikon claims to be a "fast aperture" with a 2.9x zoom ratio and a 70-200mm focal length range. The NIKKOR ED VR II model telephoto lens is manufactured with 7 total glass elements designed with Nikon's Extra Low Dispersion (ED) technology to help eliminate chromatic aberration (the failure of multiple lenses to converge images and colors on a single point; which leads to blurry and unclear photos while zoomed in). The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II has a minimum focus distance of 4.6ft(1M) and weighs a total of 54.3 oz.

The Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II telephoto lens includes additional features such as a rounded 9 blade diaphragm, compatibility with Nikon TC-14E II, TC-17E II and TC-20E II (III) teleconverter models, three unique focus modes, a Nikon AF-S silent wave motor to ensure the lens is quiet under operation, and full vibration reduction/ image stabilization support.
