Sports. Wildlife. Travel. From the expression on the winner's face, to bird shots while in the air, this long, fast-focused FX lens captures great photos and videos.
The focal length range of 70–300 mm (105–450 mm when used with Nikon SLR with DX format) brings you easily to the heart of the action. The minimum focus distance of 1.2 m in the entire zoom range and the maximum playback ratio of 0.25x allow you to get close to your subject and fill the frame. At the same time, thanks to the Internal Focusing (IF) system, the front lens does not rotate during focus, which is especially convenient if you are using a filter.
Auto & Manual Focus Mode
At the same time, the A/M and M/A focus mode switches inherited from Nikon's professional lenses enable you to control manual automation override simply by turning the focus ring. The M/A function is the preference of the photographers and the rotation in it is done virtually without any delay. Switching to A/M focus mode is less sensitive to prevent unintentional activation of manual mode. The focus ring and zoom ring have a rough cover to ensure a firm grip and smooth control.
Extremely fast and quiet autofocus
Focus on your issues extremely quickly and quietly. Create video with virtually no mechanical noise.
AF-P NIKKOR lenses include Nikon's Stepping Motor mechanism that ensures quiet focus in the moment. When shooting video, the mechanism allows you to smoothly change focus from theme to theme. You can now take video shots without the sound of the lens being focused.
Advanced vibration damping (VR) and SPORT VR mode
Shoot with the camera in hand without worrying about the consequences of the camera shake. Keep a steady eye on fast-moving themes with SPORT VR, even when they're moving unpredictably.
Compared to the previous version of this full frame lens, the vibration damping (VR) function is now faster, quieter and more efficient. With VR, you can take photos at shutter speeds up to 4.5 stop than would be required in other cases. At the same time, it is activated as soon as you press the shutter halfway through. This lens also includes the SPORT VR function, which comes from Nikon's professional lenses. SPORT VR ensures greater stability in the image displayed in the viewfinder, which is extremely useful when shooting particularly fast action or during horizontal panoramic shots.
Go where you want: build with weather protection Follow the action without worrying about your lens. Each movable part of the lens body has been sealed for protection against dust and water droplets.
Weather-protected design ensures reliable downloads during use in difficult weather conditions. The lightweight lens construction ensures greater comfort when shooting with the camera in hand and practical portability. Weighing just 680 g, this FX lens takes you on your travels. It is also an excellent second lens for as many times as you need a little more coverage.
The top resolution power of this full frame lens ensures clear images with top resolution in the entire zoom range, even when shooting with a completely open aperture.
An ultra-low dispersion glass element (ED) reduces colour deflection to ensure images with vivid colours and perfect contrast to the edges of the frame. The nine-stroke round aperture gives a uniform dull background (bokeh) with a natural appearance.
Designed to work with Nikon's fast, professional D-SLR, this lens responds quickly and accurately. The electromagnetic aperture ensures exposure accuracy at high frame speeds.
