- Nikon AF-S Nikkor 80-400mm f4.5-5.6G ED VR Camera Lens
For your cameras with FX and DX-sized image sensors, the best lens to partner them with is the AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens. This is a versatile lens with a medium to super-telephoto zoom. It can handle any situation whether you’re indoors or outdoors. It is remarkable as it covers a focal length of 80-400mm with f/4.5-5.6G aperture capable of producing stunning quality of photos. It features Nikon’s second generation Vibration Reduction Image Stabilization to handle every situation to produce sharper images in still and video capture. This lens uses a Silent Wave Motor that makes a quick and quiet focusing performance ideal for moving and still imagery. The AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Lens has an Internal Focusing System that enables a closer focusing distance during AF operation. In addition to the standard auto and manual focus, it has Auto-Priority Manual Mode that enables an easy transition from autofocus to manual during AF operation and MF Priority which allows switching from AF to MF with virtually no lag time by turning the focusing ring. The construction of the lens includes a super ED and four ED glass elements which help reduce chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range and produce higher image sharpness, clarity, and color. The elements of the lens are applied with a multilayer of Super Integrated Coating and Nano Crystal Coat to reduce reflections and reduce flares and ghosts in a wide variety of wavelengths. This lens is also compatible with 77m filters.
Product Features in Detail
Remarkable versatility and performance
Travel light. Shoot with confidence. The AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR covers the broadest focal length range of any NIKKOR super-telephoto zoom lens.
FX-format telephoto zoom lens
With a broad 80-400mm focal range and superior optical design, this lens is suited to a variety of subjects including wildlife, landscapes and sports.
ED (Extra low Dispersion) and Super ED Glass
ED Glass is an optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations. Super ED glass exhibits an even lower refractive index and lower light dispersion than ED glass, while excelling at eliminating secondary spectrum and correcting chromatic aberration.
Superb optical performance
Four ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and one Super ED glass element help correct chromatic aberration and optical color defects, which can occur at longer focal lengths.
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.
Nano Crystal Coat
An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.
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.
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.
