Nikon 200-500mm f5.6 ED VR - An action-ready telephoto zoom lens
Sports and action ready, this impressive, long-range Nikon telephoto zoom lens is full of features that help to keep it fast and considering the zoom it offers, relatively compact.
VR stabilisation, SWM autofocus and a constant aperture rating of f5.6 all combine to aid you in creating sharp, beautiful pictures in an action-packed setting.
On a DX format Nikon DSLR this already substantial zoom is magnified, providing you with an astonishing 300-750mm equivalent zoom, able to reach right across football fields and onto dance-hall stages with ease. This zoom is perfectly suited for Sports and wildlife and will never leave you kicking yourself because you can't quite get close enough to your subject.
When photographing wildlife and other fast moving subjects you cannot afford for your lens to be sluggish and struggling to find focus. The Nikon 200-500mm includes a Silent wave motor to drive the autofocus and can quickly and accurately lock onto your important subjects, allowing you to concentrate on framing and firing the shutter. This motor is also very quiet, which helps you to stay subtle and unnoticed as you shoot.
Nikon's VR systems are always spectacular in their function, and the one featured in this lens is no exception. With the ability to combat camera shake for up to 4.5 stops, this lens will help you to produce sharp images even when the light is less than perfect. For Sports photographers, the dedicated sports-mode is designed to handle any extra shake caused by panning and lateral movements, allowing you to move as fast as you have to, to get the right shot.
Constructed of ED glass, the Nikon 200-500mm is surprisingly compact and lightweight in size. This optical construction provides image quality of exceptional standard, sharp with beautiful colours. Chromatic aberrations and other imperfections are combated and barely perceptible.
