The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR is an exhilarating lens option,
giving enthusiast FX and DX-format photographers the ability to go further with
amazing zoom power and tack-sharp clarity. This compact super-telephoto zoom is
ideal for bringing distant subjects closer, including birds, sports, wildlife
and motorsports. This lens opens the doors for a fresh new perspective; with a
maximum reach of 500mm on FX-format Nikon cameras and a staggering 750mm
equivalent reach on DX-format cameras. With a maximum aperture of f/5.6,
photographers have the ability to fill much of the frame with their subject and
create a pleasing background blur, even in challenging light. This lens also
features Nikon's Electromagnetic Aperture for consistent exposures, as well as
VR with 4.5 stops of image stabilization. Additionally, the VR features Sport
Mode, which is well-suited for capturing vibrant, sharp images of distant
subjects at high frame rates or when panning with fast-moving action. The lens
also lets users focus as close as 7.2 ft. throughout the entire focal range, for
when a decisive play comes closer than expected, or capturing intricate details
Whether spending all day at an air race or in the field, the NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6 is surprisingly lightweight at only 5 lbs 1.2 oz. (2300 grams) including the tripod collar, making this lens easy to use handheld for extended periods. Photographers looking for even more reach can increase the zoom power using an optional compatible Nikon 1.4x, 1.7x or 2x E series Teleconverters to capture even the most distant subjects.
The AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR's optical formula features three ED elements to enhance sharpness and minimize chromatic aberration. A 9-blade aperture provides a desirable, smooth bokeh, while Nikon's Silent Wave Motor technology helps to quickly and quietly achieve critical focus.
