- F-Mount Lens / Full-Frame Format
- 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. Range: f/4.5-5.6 to f/32-40

Powerful Reach, Beautiful Results
The Nikon AF-P 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR Lens is an advanced lens that draws peak performance from Nikon's latest generation of FX and DX cameras. It's versatile 70–300mm focal lengthFOCAL LENGTHMeasured in mm, it is the distance from the focal point of a lens (its centre or curved mirror where light converges) to the plane of the image sensor (film) when an object is in focus. A shorter focal length lens sees a wider image and a longer focal length brings your subject closer. For example, a 15mm lens sees a very wide image and is perfect for landscape photography. Conversely, a 500mm lens sees a very narrow image, brings the subject much closer and is thus great for subjects that are far away, like a bird in a tree. With zoom lenses, its minimum and maximum focal lengths are indicated, for example, as 24-105mm. A zoom lens allows you to change the lens’ focal length, with shorter (wide-angle) and longer (telephoto) options, whereas a fixed focal length lens requires you to move back and forth to find the correct image composition. range (105-450mm on DX cameras) is great for everything from portraits to close-ups of nature making it a great 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. for wildlife photography.
Faster, quieter focusing, ideal for wildlife photography
The AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR lens incorporates Nikon's stepping motor (AF-P) for faster, quieter focusing that's ideal for fast action and video recording. The fast, quiet action also makes this one of the best Nikon lenses for wildlife photography.

It has also been defined as the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light. Bokeh depends on various aspects of lens design. Aperture design has the largest effect on Bokeh, and generally a lens with a more rounded aperture produces a more pleasing, natural Bokeh. blur that beautifully complements its telephotoTELEPHOTOA lens with long focal length capable of making distant objects appear nearer thus larger.

The lens is sealed to protect against dust and water droplets letting you follow your passion wherever it leads. The lens' large, comfortable zoom ring provides optimal torque for smooth, even zooming across the entire range.
Close focusing & consistent high-speed shooting
Get as close as 1.2 m from your subject with a maximum reproduction ratio of 0.25x for dazzling close-ups at 300mm. A specialised electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism (E) operates in precise sync with the camera's shutter for reliable 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 sequences.
