Immaculate Imagery in Any Situation
Be it birds, sports, aircrafts or even moving subjects, this FX-format compatible 200-500mm*1 f/5.6 zoom lens promises the reliability of capturing gorgeous imagery. Built to push the limits of versatility, the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR has a length of just 267.5mm and weighs approximately 2090g*2. Extra-low Dispersion glass elements are also incorporated to ensure minimal chromatic aberration, allowing for peak optical performance at both maximum wide-angle and telephoto positions.
Shoot Swift and Sharp
Minimise unintentional image blur, even when you’re out on the slopes, in a field or on a track capturing athletes doing what they do best. Incorporated into the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR is a state-of-the-art Vibration Reduction system that provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed of 4.5 stops*3 faster in NORMAL mode. A SPORT mode is also incorporated to provide improved viewfinder stability when capturing erratically-moving subjects.
Always on the Mark
In the world of action, sport and wildlife photography, precision and accuracy is the name of the game. To achieve this, the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR incorporates both an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism and a Silent Wave Motor. These features deliver stable and reliable auto-exposure control during high-speed continuous shooting, as well as more accurate autofocus (AF) respectively. The AF capabilities of the lens are also maintained when used with a 1.4x Nikon teleconverter such as the AF-S TELECONVERTER TC-14E III*4.
