STATE-OF-THE-ART OPTICS

A Nano Crystal Coat, which features nano-sized crystal particles that effectively reduces flares and ghosting, works in tandem with two fluorite lens elements and Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements. These refined optics are designed to improve lens light flow and minimise chromatic aberration for impeccable sharpness and enhanced colour correction, all of which saves you time and effort by reducing the hassle of unnecessary post-processing corrections.

FASTER AND SHARPER THAN EVER

The AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR boasts a Vibration Reduction (VR) system that delivers an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster in NORMAL mode. In SPORT mode, the VR system is ideal for capturing high-speed subjects, which provides improved viewfinder stability and enhanced blur-reduction capabilities, ensuring sharper, faster and more precise telephoto images in any situation.

EYES ON THE PRIZE

Never lose track of your subject, even during high-speed continuous shooting, with remarkable autofocus (AF) tracking and stable auto-exposure (AE) control through the adoption of an electromagnetic aperture mechanism. This mechanism comprises of an aperture blade unit with drive mechanism that is controlled via electric signals from the camera body, allowing for improved long-distance accuracy during high-speed continuous shooting of fast and erratic moving subjects.

ALWAYS ON THE GO

Engineered with the harshest of shooting environments in mind, a fluorine coat that effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt for easy cleaning is applied to the lens front. Experience improved durability with the inclusion of a tripod collar ring with bearings, that also facilitates faster and smoother switching between horizontal and vertical orientations, ensuring ease of use and improved opportunities for framing and composition.
