The lens features two fluorite and two extra-low dispersion glass elements that work harmoniously to reduce chromatic aberrations, enhance overall image sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity, all while contributing to a lighter lens design.
Nano Crystal Coat and Super Integrated Coatings have been meticulously applied to the optical elements, minimizing flare and ghosting in bright and backlit conditions. The result is a marked reduction in unwanted reflections, ensuring optimal image quality.
Vibration Reduction (VR):
The VR image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake by up to 4.5 shutter speed stops, making this lens ideal for low-light conditions. The Sport Mode is tailored for fast-paced scenarios, and the Tripod Mode suppresses subtle ground vibrations when used atop a support system.
Silent Wave Motor (SWM):
The Silent Wave Motor delivers fast, near-silent autofocus performance, complemented by full-time manual focus override. The internal focusing design maintains the overall length of the lens during use, promoting faster focusing speeds.
The lens boasts a dust- and moisture-resistant magnesium-alloy barrel, ensuring durability in inclement conditions. A removable tripod collar provides well-balanced support when working from a monopod or tripod, featuring ball bearings for smooth transitions between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations.
Electromagnetic Aperture Mechanism:
The specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism enhances exposure control stability, particularly beneficial for fast continuous shooting rates.
The AF-S Teleconverter TC800-1.25E ED is included, offering 1.25x magnification and increasing the effective focal length to 1000mm. Maintaining AF and VR capabilities, this teleconverter is designed specifically for use with the 800mm f/5.6 lens.
Compatible with optional AF-S Teleconverter TC-14, TC-17, and TC-20 teleconverters, expanding your creative possibilities even further.
