Product Description

Conquer distance

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.

Sharpen your vision

~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 lightÑgreat for those magic moments at dawn and dusk. Sports Mode is optimized for camera pans and other movements common when shooting fast action.

Dazzling performance

Advanced Nikon lens technology Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass cuts through the glare of bright sunlight.

With conventional D/G type lenses the diaphragm blades are operated by mechanical linkage levers.
