Built to fast shooting speed in most of the working conditions, the AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR delivers super-telephoto lens equipped with Nikon’s latest lens technologies. The bright f/4 maximum aperture, focal length of 500mm and advanced optics ensure outstanding results. It consists of two fluorite elements to control distortions and chromatic aberrations, as well as lessen the overall weight of the lens. It operates in a near silent focusing thanks to the Silent Wave Motor. The Vibration Reduction compensates the camera shakes to accomplish image stabilization and electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism ensures precise exposures at high frame rates. Its Sport Mode is perfect to work with fast-paced conditions. The lens features a detachable, rotatable monopod collar and fits 40.5 mm filter size.
Product Features in Detail
500mm focal length and fast f/4 maximum aperture.
Robust and light
Fluorite elements help reduce the weight of this super-telephoto lens to just 3090 g (approx.) Lightweight, rugged and reliable, the body boasts a professional-grade dust- and moisture-resistant construction.
High optical performance
Two fluorite elements, three extra-low dispersion (ED) glass elements and Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat ensure minimal chromatic aberration and ghosting.
Vibration Reduction (VR)
With SPORT mode. VR minimises camera shake and lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to four stops slower.¹ SPORT VR mode delivers a stable viewfinder image when shooting high-speed movement, and allows a continuous shooting frame rate and release time lag similar to those that are achievable when VR is turned off.
Enables consistent, more precise exposures during high-speed bursts.
Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
Ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocus performance with seamless manual override.
Focus limit switch
Offers two positions: FULL and ∞ - 8 m.
Actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality. The coating is applied to the protective glass on the front element of the lens, where it also makes it easier to clean the glass without damaging the surface.
Minimum focus distance
Tripod mount ring
New bearings improve durability and ensure smooth switching between horizontal and vertical orientation. The mount is positioned close to the rear of the lens to ensure comfortable transportation, and allow the included one-piece hood to be reversed.
