Wherever your passion lies, this
outstanding super telephoto zoom lens can bring it into focus. Capture
and share stunning views of birds, wildlife, motorsports, 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
Lightweight, compact super telephoto zoom
Whether your subject is far in the
distance or close, fast or slow, you can land the shot. On FX-format
cameras, 500mm 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 750mm!
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
At super telephoto distances, the
smallest camera movements can cause image blur. 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.
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.
