Product Details

Nikon AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED Lens - 2161

Features:

  • Compact, high-performance telephoto zoom lens with VR II
    The compact, lightweight AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED delivers 300mm of telephoto reach (450mm equivalent on DX-format D-SLRs) with Nikon's second generation of Vibration Reduction (VR II) for enhanced hand-held and low-light shooting. Powered by Nikon's exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing, and optimized with the latest advancements in lens design, it draws peak performance from both FX- and DX-format DSLRs. Leave the tripod at home and create stunning still images and HD videos from any distance.
  • Handheld telephoto shooting
    Nikon's VR II image stabilization The AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED brings telephoto reach to hand-held shooting opportunities. Compact and lightweight, it's a well-balanced walk-around lens for stills and HD videos. Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization provides 2.5 stops* of blur free handheld shooting, assuring dramatically sharper still images and HD video capture. You can even focus as close as 4.9-ft throughout the entire zoom range for fantastic close-up shots.
  • Exceptional image quality
    Built on a legacy of NIKKOR excellence Whether you shoot an FX- or DX-format camera, the AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED captures exceptional photos and HD videos with edge-to-edge sharpness. Its specialized Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass produces clear, high-contrast images with minimal chromatic aberration. Nikon's exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) provides ultra-quiet, ultra-fast autofocusing with seamless manual focus override; and Internal Focus (IF) lets that focusing occur without the lens changing size, so you can maintain camera-subject working distance throughout the focus range.
    • Vibration Reduction
      A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
    • Silent Wave Motor
      AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
    • ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
      An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
    • M/A
      Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
    • IF Lens
      A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

      Comments about Nikon AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED Lens:

      I use this lens for landscape and wildlife photography and I could not be more pleased with the performance. I use this lens with a Nikon D90 and the combination creates the most amazing photos. This is a lens that even the novice can use to produce breathtaking photographs. I haven't found anything that I would consider a negative although if you've never used a large lens before remember they are a little bulkier so a camera bag is a must. This is a quality lens at a reasonable price. If you buy this lens you will not be disappointed.
