A compact and lightweight telephoto zoom lens, with speedy and quiet Autofocus
Designed for use on Nikon's popular entry-level APS-C format DSLRs, this AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G VR lens is a perfect partner for your wider standard zoom lens and will assist you in reaching distant subjects; ideal for Sports, wildlife and travel. Released alongside another Nikon lens with an identical zoom range, this particular version does not include a VR stabiliser, but is more budget friendly as a result. An ED glass element had been included in the optical construction of this lens, resulting in the reduction of all manner of aberrations and aiding in the overall high-quality appearance of the images.
Further assisting travellers and handheld shooters, this 70-300mm has been designed with portability in mind and this has really come through in the finished product - it is surprisingly compact and lightweight! This is one lens that you won't mind adding to your carry bag, with the benefits it brings your photography far outweighing any weight increase. Nikon knows that size is an issue to most amateur shooters and they have delivered here, creating a compact telephoto lens with no quality sacrificed. Another benefit for amateur shooters is the lack of switches or buttons on the lens barrel, which saves you from accidental setting changes and keeps things as simple as possible.
One of the reasons Nikon have been able to cut down on the size of this 70-300mm lens is the inclusion of a new, specially designed Pulse Stepping motor. This new AF motor is the drawcard of these new lens releases, enabling quick, quiet and smooth autofocus, even during liveview and video shooting. With more and more photographers exploring the moving image and current Nikon DSLRs being equipped with high resolution video features, it is wonderful to have an entry level range of lenses, so suited to these endeavours.
