Optical Excellence:

The lens features two fluorite and three extra-low dispersion lens elements that work harmoniously to reduce chromatic aberrations, enhance overall image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity, all while minimizing the lens’s weight for improved handling.

Advanced Coatings:

Nano Crystal Coat and Super Integrated Coating on lens elements significantly reduce surface and internal reflections, resulting in a substantial reduction in lens flare and ghosting. The optical system is protected by a front fluorine-coated meniscus glass element, providing durability and reliability in various shooting environments.

Vibration Reduction (VR) Image Stabilization:

VR compensates for camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops, facilitating handheld shooting in low-light conditions. Sport Mode suits fast-paced scenarios, while Tripod Mode suppresses ground vibrations when working atop a support system.

Silent Wave Motor (SWM):

The Silent Wave Motor delivers swift, near-silent autofocus, catering to both stills and movie recording. Full-time manual focus override offers immediate control, and the internal focusing design maintains the lens’s length for faster focusing speeds.

Electromagnetic Aperture Mechanism:

The specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism ensures greater exposure control stability, particularly advantageous for fast continuous shooting rates.

Rugged Construction:

A dust- and moisture-resistant magnesium-alloy lens barrel ensures reliability in inclement conditions. The removable tripod collar provides well-balanced support when using a monopod or tripod, featuring ball bearings for smooth transitions between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations.

Versatile Compatibility:

Designed for use with FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, this lens is also compatible with DX models, providing a 750mm equivalent focal length. Expand your creative possibilities with optional AF-S Teleconverters TC-14, TC-17, and TC-20.
