Product Features in Detail

Flawless photography for life on the move
Redefine the boundaries of super telephoto precision and uncompromising versatility with the AF-S 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR. Take on the most arduous shooting environments, from adrenaline pumping action to wildlife photography, with this FX-format compatible 2.5x super-telephoto 200-500mm f/5.6 zoom lens. To ensure high level optical proficiency with every shot, Extra-low Dispersion glass elements are integrated, along with a cutting-edge Vibration Reduction system. Further reinforcing the standard of NIKKOR technology, a Silent Wave Motor and electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism are employed to meet your expectations of stellar image quality, accuracy and sharpness.

Immaculate imagery in any situation
Be it birds, sports, aircrafts or even moving subjects, this FX-format compatible 200-500mm f/5.6 zoom lens promises the reliability of capturing gorgeous imagery. Built to push the limits of versatility, the AF-S 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR has a length of just 267.5mm and weighs approximately 2090g. Extra-low Dispersion glass elements are also incorporated to ensure minimal chromatic aberration, allowing for peak optical performance at both maximum wide-angle and telephoto positions.

Shoot swift and sharp
Minimise unintentional image blur, even when you’re out on the slopes, in a field or on a track capturing athletes doing what they do best. Incorporated into the AF-S 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR is a state-of-the-art Vibration Reduction system that provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed of 4.5 stops faster in NORMAL mode. A SPORT mode is also incorporated to provide improved viewfinder stability when capturing erratically-moving subjects.

Always on the mark
In the world of action, sport and wildlife photography, precision and accuracy is the name of the game. To achieve this, the AF-S 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR incorporates both an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism and a Silent Wave Motor. These features deliver stable and reliable auto-exposure control during high-speed continuous shooting, as well as more accurate autofocus (AF) respectively. The AF capabilities of the lens are also maintained when used with a 1.4x Nikon teleconverter such as the AF-S TELECONVERTER TC-14E III.

Versatility and performance maximised
Designed for photographers seeking a balance of versatility and performance in a lens for telephoto shooting, the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR is an FX-format compatible, 2.5X super-telephoto 200-500mm zoom lens. With its fixed maximum aperture of f/5.6, the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR captures vibrant images that are rich in detail, even from afar.

Effortless creation with sharpness and clarity
Aiding in delivery of stunning sharpness and contrast, even at larger apertures, is the incorporation of Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements. Supporting the busy photographer on the go, these glass elements minimise chromatic aberration, liberating the photographer from tedious adjustment processes.

Movement capture made easy
Be it spotting riverfront wildlife in their natural habitats or snapping the split moment of high adrenaline sporting action, the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR excels in the reduction of image blur caused by camera or hand shake.

Precise intuitive control
Intuitive and seamless exposure control comes to the aid of photographers battling the ever changing light conditions and cloud cover outdoors. During high-speed continuous shooting, the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR provides smooth and stable auto exposure control with the adoption of an electromagnetic aperture mechanism.

Big pictures for big imaginations
With a shorter focal length, photographers can now get closer to their subjects while drawing emphasis to their desired focus, enhancing beauty in perspective with a greater amount of background blurring. The AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.8G ED brings wide-angle performance to photographers with a big appetite for beautiful images. From striking skyscrapers and landscapes to everyday scenes of foreign cultures and travels, this fast, wide-angle 24mm prime lens has an f/1.8 maximum aperture, which supports dynamic captures with natural blurring.

Advanced optics, distinguished image quality
Photos retain incredible details and dynamic colour, driven by outstanding NIKKOR optical components within the lens. ED glass and aspherical lens elements work to reduce chromatic aberration and distortion, while Nano Crystal Coat minimises unwanted ghosting and lens flare. Superior image rendering, even at the image edges, is achieved in a compact and light design, making the AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.8G ED a perfect and indispensable “carry-everywhere” lens from day to night.

Designed for the road
Photographers should not be weighed down by heavy equipment in their continuous pursuit of great images. More mobile and compact than ever, the AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.8G ED delivers the same renowned NIKKOR optical performance in a lens body weighing only approximately 355g. With compact gear, photographers have the flexibility to pack smarter, travel lighter and aim higher.
