- Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR Camera Lens
The lightest of today’s 300mm focal length autofocus (AF) lens. This lens will be able to stay dominant from the new entry level lenses out in the market. Having a maximum aperture of f/4, it stands out to give high quality sharpness and clarity. It features 77mm Filter Size and Nano Crystal Coat, Fluorine coat to lessen chromatic aberration and ghosting. Its VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilizer helps reduce camera shake resulting to blur providing an effect of shutter speed 4.5 stops faster. The Silent Wave Motor (SWM) however provides minimal disturbance as you take your shot. It is compatible with APS-C and Full Frame Sensor DSLR Cameras.
Product Features in Detail
Sharp, clear images in any shooting situation
With a maximum aperture of f/4 that creates artistic images with bokeh, the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR shoots beautifully, even in low light situations. It also puts more auto-exposure control right in your hands, as its electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism offers consistent exposure in high-speed shooting situations. Photographing adrenaline-pumping moments is further enhanced by Vibration Reduction (VR), which reduces the need for a tripod and minimises shake, while providing an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.5 stops faster (in NORMAL mode*3). For capturing subjects such as athletes who are moving swiftly and unpredictably, switch to SPORT VR mode for a remarkably responsive photography experience.
The power of a Phase Fresnel lens in a revolutionary 300mm
The innovative design of the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR cleverly offers a compact, lightweight body that you can carry wherever you go. With the Phase Fresnel (PF)*2 lens element, singular Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element, and Nano Crystal Coating working in tandem, you can now spend less time adjusting your images and more time shooting sharp images with virtually no chromatic aberration and ghosting. The fluorine coating also effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease, and dirt, making it ideal for shooting in any environment. For minimal disturbance as you shoot, you can rely on the Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which drives the optics elements to enable high-speed autofocusing that’s extremely accurate and quiet.
The portability every photographer needs
Thanks to the innovative PF lens element, the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR is the world's lightest*1 300mm AF lens, weighing in at a mere 755g. Its ultra-compact feature offers incredible portability, making it the quintessential prime lens that deserves a place in any serious photographer’s bag.
FX-format compatible, prime telephoto lens with 300 mm* focal length and f/4 maximum aperture
With its compact and light design as well as high optical performance, this telephoto lens is ideal for capturing a wide range of scenes such as sports, wildlife, landscapes, portraits, and more.
PF (Phase Fresnel) lens for a compact and light body
Employing a PF (Phase Fresnel) lens, a first for a NIKKOR lens, an outstandingly compact and light body is realized. Compared to the current AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4D IF-ED, weight is reduced by approx. 545 g, length by approx. 75 mm and diameter by approx. 1 mm.
Vibration Reduction (VR) with an effect of 4.5 stops
Image blur caused by camera shake is effectively reduced by the built-in Vibration Reduction function that provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.5 stops faster (in NORMAL mode; based on CIPA Standard*). SPORT mode, particularly effective when shooting sports, for example, in which subjects are radically moving, is adopted following the AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8E FL ED VR.
High optical performance
Employing a PF (Phase Fresnel) lens element and an ED glass element, plus Nano Crystal Coat, superior optical performance with minimized chromatic aberration and ghost effect is achieved.
Photographic expression utilizing the f/4 maximum aperture is enabled
Beautifully blurred pictures that cannot be attained with zoom lenses can be taken. The range of shooting applications is extended to dark scenes such as at sunset and dawn. Pictures that retain high image quality can be captured even in dark interiors
Electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism is adopted
A diaphragm blade unit with drive mechanism is incorporated in the lens barrel, enabling diaphragm control via electric signals from the camera body. This ensures stable auto-exposure control even during high-speed continuous shooting.
Fluorine coat is applied to the lens front
Effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt, ensuring easy removal even if they adhere to the lens surface.
