The well-designed AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR is the essential telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger. Essentially, it isolates and magnifies the subject so that it appears as a full image when shooting from a distance. Telephoto lenses are ideal for photographing subjects that are further away, such as wildlife and sports photography.zoom lensZOOM LENSAllows a camera to, unlike a fixed-focal length or prime lens, change smoothly from a long shot to a close-up or vice versa by varying the focal length. A true zoom lens, also called a parfocal lens, is one that maintains focus when its focal length changes. Due to more moving parts, zoom lenses often produce images of slightly lesser quality than their prime lens counterparts. However due to the inherent flexibility of being able to vary the focal length, they are extremely popular for photography where composition needs to be adapted quickly - such as at weddings, for example.. The broad focal range, combined with innovations such as Nano Crystal Coat and Extra-low Dispersion glass, makes it possible to capture vivid stills and sharp videos at any distance. Handheld photography is effortless with the assistance of advanced Vibration Reduction image stabilisation that greatly reduces camera shake. Light and compact, this lens is an excellent companion for travel or long shooting sessions.
Impressive Telephoto Performance And Versatility
This versatile lens is 180mm in length and weighs approximately 850g, making it exceptional for travel or extended shoots. Its 70-200mm zoom range opens up a range of shooting styles, from portraits to telephoto close-ups and everything in between. An additional reach of up to 2x magnification can be achieved by coupling the lens with one of our fully compatible teleconverters. The in-lens Vibration Reduction technology minimises image blur caused by camera shake and offers the equivalent of shooting at a shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time.
For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc. 4.0 stops faster, allowing for superior performance when shooting without a tripod.
Extraordinary Images At Any Distance
The AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR is engineered for high-quality stills and videos across its entire zoom range. Our exclusive Nano Crystal Coat eliminates ghosting and flareFLAREOccurs when a point light source such as the sun or an artificial light (that is brighter than the rest of the scene), hits the front element of a lens resulting in a lack of contrast, haze, or unwanted semi-transparent objects being present in the image. You can avoid lens flare with a lenshood or filters, however, the effect is also useful for bringing artistic elements into an image, such as sun rays peaking out from behind a rock formation. for improved clarity. Three Extra-low Dispersion elements eliminate chromatic aberrations to maximise sharpness and enhance colour. Its advanced Silent Wave Motor (SWM) is the ideal complement to the advanced optics. This sophisticated system silently achieves continuous autofocusing with great precision.
