Product Description

Incomparable Images from Near or Far

The 70-300mm focal length of the AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED is an ideal upgrade from standard zoom lenses, offering endless photographic possibilities. Use it to capture gorgeous portraits and telephoto shots without changing your lens. You can even focus from as close as 1.5m throughout the entire zoom range to produce incredibly detailed close-ups. Across its entire range, the lens is designed to offer astounding edge-to-edge sharpness for photos and HD videos alike.


Reliable Performance Shot After Shot

The AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED is engineered to complement our high-resolution FX and DX-format DSLRs. Its Extra-low Dispersion glass elements minimise chromatic aberrations for superior contrast in any lighting. Our Silent Wave Motor (SWM) allows this zoom lens to achieve fast and precise autofocus while remaining quiet. A handy M/A mode enables seamless switching from autofocus to manual focus with no time lag.


Unparalleled Handheld Performance

Handheld photo and video shooting is effortless with this remarkably well-balanced and lightweight lens. Our Vibration Reduction image stabilisation reduces camera shake – providing a 2.5-stop* performance boost for optimal clarity at long range or in low-light conditions.



*Based on CIPA Standard. The value is achieved when: DX-format lenses are attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera, FX-format compatible lenses are attached to an FX-format digital SLR camera, and zoom lenses are set at the maximum telephoto position.
