Redefine the boundaries of super 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. precision and uncompromising versatility with the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR. Take on the most arduous shooting environments, from adrenaline pumping action to wildlife photography, with this FX-format compatible 2.5x super-telephoto 200-500mm f/5.6 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.. To ensure high-level optical proficiency with every shot, Extra-low Dispersion glass elements are integrated, along with a cutting-edge Vibration Reduction system. Further reinforcing the standard of NIKKOR technology, a Silent Wave Motor and electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism are employed to meet your expectations of stellar image quality, accuracy and sharpness.

Immaculate Imagery In Any Situation

Be it birds, sports, aircrafts or even moving subjects, this FX-format compatible 200-500mm f/5.6 zoom lens promises the reliability of capturing gorgeous imagery. Built to push the limits of versatility, the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR has a length of just 267.5mm and weighs approximately 2090g. Extra-low Dispersion glass elements are also incorporated to ensure minimal chromatic aberration, allowing for peak optical performance at both maximum wide-angle and telephoto positions.

Shoot Swift And Sharp

Minimise unintentional image blur, even when you’re out on the slopes, in a field or on a track capturing athletes doing what they do best. Incorporated into the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR is a state-of-the-art Vibration Reduction system that provides an effect equivalent to 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. of 4.5 stops faster in NORMAL mode. A SPORT mode is also incorporated to provide improved viewfinder stability when capturing erratically-moving subjects.

Always On The Mark

In the world of action, sport and wildlife photography, precision and accuracy is the name of the game. To achieve this, the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR incorporates both an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism and a Silent Wave Motor. These features deliver stable and reliable auto-exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image. control during high-speed continuous shooting, as well as more accurate autofocus (AF) respectively. The AF capabilities of the lens are also maintained when used with a 1.4x Nikon teleconverter such as the AF-S TELECONVERTER TC-14EIII.

High-Quality Images Are Supported With Superior Optical Performance

Three ED glass elements are employed to achieve superior sharpness and color correction by minimizing chromatic aberration. High-resolution images delivering a sense of depth can be captured at any focus distance up to infinity. Distant wild birds can be sharply rendered, faithfully reproducing even the texture of fine feathers. In addition, with its minimum focus distance of 2.2 m that lets you get closer to subjects, and the maximum reproduction ratio of 0.22x, as well as a shallow depth-of-field provided with the super-telephoto range and a large degree of image blur delivered with f/5.6 apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur., this new super-telephoto lens realizes elaborate image expression while emphasizing the subjects.

Sport Mode Is Adopted As A Vr Mode Option To Cope With Quick Movements

SPORT mode is especially effective when shooting sports, for example, in which subjects are radically moving. This mode has also been enhanced so that a more stable image can be viewed even when tracking a moving subject.
