Multi-element construction You're sure to get great results in telephoto situations, as the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500 mm features 19 lens elements in 12 groups, including three ED glass elements to counteract chromatic aberration. Whether you're taking shots of lions racing across the plain or your favourite player streaking towards the goal line, this lens will capture all that detail clearly and precisely, getting you up close to the action. An electromagnetic diaphragm provides excellent AE control even during high-speed continuous shooting. Superior telephoto stability Because it's long and heavy, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR f/5.6E ED VR Zoom Lens is equipped with cutting-edge VR (Vibration Reduction) technology, allowing you to shoot at shutter speeds up to 4.5 stops slower than on comparable models. If you're photographing fast-moving subjects like animals or people in motion, use the SPORT VR mode to ensure clean, precise results. It's especially useful if you have to pan the camera to track your subjects. Quiet performance and zoom lock The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR f/5.6E ED VR Telephoto Lens features a Nikon SWM (Silent Wave Motor) to assist its autofocus function. Hone in smoothly on your subjects and enjoy quieter performance when you need it. The zoom lock switch is invaluable for keeping the lens secure when you're not using it, and there's a detachable tripod foot for added stability when your camera is mounted on a tripod.
