Nikkor AF-S FX 500mm F5.6E PF ED VR Telephoto Lens

    Description

    Pack light. Go big.

    When photographing birds wildlife sports or action mobility can make the difference between nailing the shot or missing it altogether. The AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR is a fraction of the size of most full-frame 500mm lenses freeing you to be as nimble as your subjects.

    Product Description

    Travel light Nikon's smallest lightest full-frame 500mm prime lens ever* approx. 9.3 inches long and 3.2 lbs. *Among lenses that are not a Catadioptric design (Mirror-Reflex type)

    Bring the world in reach Powerful 500mm focal length (750mm equivalent on DX-format) brings the shots that matter in reach.

    Shoot in the moment Handheld vibrations are tamed by VR image stabilization equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops* faster.

    Super-telephoto re-imagined

    Proprietary Phase Fresnel technology

    For nearly two centuries Fresnel lenses were used in lighthouses to project a strong beam of light. By harnessing the idea in reverseÑfor gathering light instead of projecting itÑNikon engineers can create lenses that are shorter and lighter with the same image quality and zoom power of much larger lenses.

    Outstanding image quality

    When combined with Nikon's Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass and other NIKKOR glass elements the Phase Fresnel element produces high resolution high contrast images with beautiful background blur.

    Fast autofocus

    Lighter more compact optics don't just benefit your mobility a lighter focus lens group allows the autofocus system to focus faster too. With the AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) is able to operate at peak performance for fast quiet autofocus.

    Phase Fresnel

    Phase Fresnel (PF) lens elements effectively compensate for chromatic aberration and ghosting when combined with ordinary glass lens elements. The PF lens element is based upon the Phase Fresnel lens which appears to have a series of concentric circles engraved onto it. Utilizing a Phase Fresnel lens element allows Nikon engineers to use fewer lens elements resulting in a more compact and lightweight lens. Due to the characteristics of a PF (Phase Fresnel) lens that utilises the photo diffraction phenomenon when there is a strong light source within the frame
