Nikon AF-S FX Nikkor 200-500 mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens
Wherever your passion lies, this outstanding Nikon AF-S FX Nikkor 200-500 mm f/5.6E ED VR super telephoto zoom lens can bring it into focus. Capture and share stunning views of birds, wildlife, motor-sports, athletes, performers, landmarks and other faraway subjects. A fast f/5.6 constant aperture gives your shots beautifully out-of-focus backgrounds across the entire zoom range. Turn fast-moving action into dazzling photo sequences—the electromagnetic diaphragm operates in sync for the fastest subjects and shutter speeds while Vibration Reduction image stabilization keeps your shots sharp and steady. And in the rare cases when additional reach is needed, you can increase the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR's zoom power with an optional Nikon 1.4x, 1.7x or 2x teleconverter.
Lightweight, compact super telephoto zoom - With this Nikon AF-S FX Nikkor 200-500 mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens, whether your subject is far in the distance or close, fast or slow, you can land the shot. On FX-format cameras, 500 mm brings distant birds, wildlife, athletes, performers, landmarks and more into tight focus. DX-format cameras add an additional 1.5x zoom effect for an angle of view equivalent to a whopping 750 mm! And despite that extreme power, you can also focus on subjects as close as 7.2 feet away for detail rich close-ups.
~4.5 stops of Vibration Reduction means that even at super telephoto distances, you can correct image blur caused by shake. Vibration Reduction image stabilization counteracts camera shake up to ~4.5 stops for sharp photos and steady videos. You also can shoot at slower shutter speeds in low light—great for those magic moments at dawn and dusk. Sports Mode is optimized for camera pans and other movements common when shooting fast action.
You will get Dazzling performance from the advanced Nikon lens technology: Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass cuts through the glare of bright sunlight. Silent Wave Motor (SWM) powers ultra-fast, near-silent autofocusing with seamless manual override. The Electromagnetic diaphragm (E) operates in sync with the fastest shutter speeds and frame rates, even when using an optional teleconverter. Always bring home views that amaze.
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet. In this NIKKOR lens only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel. Nikon Vibration Reduction (VR) is an in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
