Nikon Nikkor-Q 200mm f4.0
The Nikon Nikkor-Q Auto 200mm f/4 is a telephoto zoom portrait lens for Nikon F 35 mm SLR cameras.
It’s a great lens for its time and many people bought these for taking pictures of sports, news, birds and just about anything that needs a long lens. The lens is a masterpiece of optical engineering. Nikon made a lens with only 4 elements in it, resulting in pictures with saturated colors.
This is a perfectly good lens if you want a very sharp telephoto and it's a much better performer than the 70-300 ED many amateurs are buying today.
The Nikkor-Q Auto 200mm f/4 was an instant bestseller used by a wide variety of photographers for press and sports coverage, landscapes, railroads, astronomy, and so on because it offered the high performance and nimble operation designers intended. The lens instantly became a favorite of many photographers around the World. This is a lens that many long-time Nikon fans remember fondly and with which they captured great masterpieces.
Many people consider this lens to be one of the most important lenses in recent history because this lens was responsible for bringing the telephoto lens to the masses.
The reasonably fast f/4 speed allowed this lens to shoot most sports as well as for portraiture or landscape. The Tokyo Olympics in the mid 60’s also popularized this lens because photographers can now use telephoto lenses with confidence on an SLR system as opposed to rangefinders where parallax can result in difficult framing and focusing. It was a real game-changer.
The lens has a built-in hood.
