Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S Review
Sharpness at 135mm
Our sharpness tests are carried out by photographing a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The Nikon Z 70-200mm f/2.8 VR S lens was attached to a Nikon Z 7, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. Self-timer mode was activated to steady the camera completely. Any slight tonal changes you may see across the crops are a result of slight changes in natural light during the shooting session.
The full frame at 135mm
At 135mm, centre sharpness at f/2.8 is excellent and stays sharp throughout the aperture range, before dropping off ever so slightly at f/16 and f/22. At the edge of the image, the best results can be seen between f/5.6 and f/11. Once again, the overall impression of sharpness at normal web and printing sizes is excellent.
