A high-performance telephoto prime lens - Nikon AF-S 300mm f2.8 G
With an long telephoto focal length, bright f2.8 aperture, VR stabilizer and solid build quality the 300mm f2.8G ED VR II lens from Nikon is the weapon of choice for many sports and wildlife photographers and also finds it uses in portraiture and the photojournalism fields. Optically this lens has been constructed for professional use, providing users with sublime images, tack sharp and with shallow depths of field – the results are astonishing.
Handheld & low-light ready
With a long focal length like the 300mm offered on this lens, hand-held shooting can often be incredibly difficult, particularly when a photographer is unable to use a fast shutter speed. Thanks to the VR II stabilizer, the 300mm f2.8 allows photographer to leave the tripod aside on more occasions than not, able to improve on camera shake and allow shooting at shutter speeds up to 3 stops slower than usually possible. Lift the camera right up to your eye and move along as your subject does; this lens gives you the confidence and freedom to do so thanks to the promise of blur-free results.
The bright f2.8 aperture of the Nikon 300mm lens can be used in combination with the previously discussed stabilization to enable users to shoot in available light conditions, but it is mostly notable for the shallow depth of field it delivers. Backgrounds can be thrown right out of focus and thanks to the rounded 9-blade diaphragm, the visual appearance of these out of focus areas is beautiful. Stunning portraits with creamy bokeh is a given with this telephoto prime lens.
