  1. when you want to compare a zoom lens to the fuji 50-140 2.8, it has to be a 70-200mm f4 on a full frame camera .. so, here the nikon 70-200mm f4 af-s vr is more relevant and it is a 850 grams … !!!


  2. @ Gordon – both of the Nikon lenses mentioned (70-200 f/4 and 70-200 f/2.8) have built in stabilization. Not certain why you think the comparison is lopsided???

  3. A lop-sided comparison, especially if you are interested in the selective focus capability. A more reasonable comparison would be with the Nikkor 70-200 f4, which has image stabilization. At any given aperture, the Fuji would have to be at least one stop more open than the Nikon to achieve a comparable degree of background blur. Yes, the extra stop would allow a lower iso or faster shutter speed on the fuji, however that would be more than off-set by the VR.
