Packed with the latest lens technologies from Nikon, the AF-S 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR FX-format lens delivers a whole new level of super-telephoto versatility for sport, wildlife and aviation enthusiasts who want to bring distant subjects closer, with ease. This compact lens is graced with Nikon's Electromagnetic Aperture to ensure consistent exposures throughout and the latest Vibration Reduction (VR) system with 4.5 stops of image stabilisation. Additional features include Sport VR mode for tracking fast-paced subjects, Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for high-speed AF and a 2.2m minimum focusing distance.
- FX-format super-telephoto zoom lens: offers flexible 200–500mm focal length range (DX-format equivalent: 300–750mm). Ideal for shooting wildlife, birds, planes, and fast-paced sports.
- Constant f/5.6 aperture: enables consistent speed and smooth control over depth of field across the entire zoom range.
- High optical performance: three extra-low dispersion (ED) glass elements ensure minimal chromatic aberration.
- Vibration Reduction (VR): minimises camera shake and lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to 4.5 stops slower.¹ SPORT VR mode delivers a stable viewfinder image when capturing high-speed movement. It also allows a continuous shooting frame rate and release time lag similar to those that are achievable when VR is turned off. Use SPORT VR mode to perfectly capture moving subjects such as birds in flight, or fast-paced sports.
- High-speed AF operation: Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocus performance with seamless manual override.
- Electromagnetic diaphragm: for consistent, more precise exposures during high-speed bursts.
- Minimum focus distance: 2.2m.
- Zoom-lock switch: keeps the lens secure when not in use.
- Tripod foot: helps stabilise the lens when using a tripod.
- AF with teleconverters: the fixed maximum aperture of f/5.6 enables AF operation even when using a 1.4x teleconverter (attached to an f/8-compatible camera).
- Included: detachable hood and soft case.
