Craft ultra-zoom views that take your breath away with Nikon’s DX/FX NIKKOR 200-500mm Lens. Whether you want to capture fast-moving sports from a distance, sweeping landscapes or close-up nature shots, this will deliver professional power and sublime results. Packed with other advancements like Vibration Reduction, rapid Silent Wave Motor Autofocus and extra-low dispersion glass, your photography would get a titanic boost.
Splendid Super-Zoom With the 200-500m focal length range (FX-format DSLRs), this lens delivers a 2.5x zoom ratio that will execute distant shots with magnificent clarity. You can crank this zoom up another 50% too, with the 750mm equivalent length on DX-format DSLRs, for insane closeness to the action. If you want to snap something closer, there’s no need to switch lenses either, as this can focus on subjects as close as 7.2 feet away.
Bespoke Photography The f/5.6 maximum aperture delivers razor-sharp focus on nearby elements and rapid frame rate for clear low-light shots and distinctive background/subject separation (or bokeh). The f/32 minimum aperture gives magnificent detail of sweeping wide shots. With such variation, this multi-functional lens is a blank canvas ready to inspire and be moulded around your photographic needs.
Crisp Vibration Reduction Technology To help keep photos sharp and videos steady, the AF-S DX/FX NIKKOR 200-500mm features Nikon's Vibration Reduction technology. This provides 4 stops of blur-free handheld shooting or 4.5 stops in sports mode so you can capture crisp, clear photos and steady videos. This camera tech is also a big advancement in low-light solutions which can slow down your shutter speed, without compromising on the overall sharpness.
Sublime Optical Construction Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor delivers smooth, quiet and highly-accurate autofocus, so your snaps’ subjects are automatically optimised. Furthermore, this functions internally so it’s easier to mount graduated filters and other accessories. The lens contains Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements to cut through glare and make your snap is razor-sharp, while the Electromagnetic Diaphragm works wonderfully with fast shutter speeds. Furthermore, its Super Integrated Coating clamps down on image ghost and flare for fine, crystal-clear snaps every time.
