Also contributing to improved image quality, both Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings have been applied to lens elements to lessen flare and ghosting for improved contrast, clarity, and colour fidelity. Protecting the advanced optical design is a front fluorine-coated meniscus glass element that, when paired with the weather-resistant magnesium alloy barrel, supports working in inclement conditions.
VR II Stabiliser - Blur-free images and increased confidence
Generally a lens of this focal length and calibre is going to wind up in the hands of serious photographers that are interested in action photography; motor sports, wildlife and the like. To further entice these fast-paced photographers the Nikon 500mm has in place some of Nikon’s more advanced lens technologies. One of which is the Vibration Reduction stabiliser, which provides up to 3 stops of blur-free shooting, allowing you to go handheld on occasion and still be able to capture sharp images that are not ruined by camera shake. It also has a unique tripod detection mode which compensates for any shutter release vibrations, further increasing the likelihood of sharper images. These qualities afford you a certain level of flexibility and spontaneity which is necessary if you are going to be responsible for those once in a lifetime images.
Fast focus for fast-paced subjects
Also on the action front is the Silent Wave motor that drives the autofocus. Not only is the autofocus as accurate as you would expect from a lens of this quality, but it is smooth, lightning fast and as the name suggests, incredibly quiet. This focus motor renders the 500mm as an even more viable option for sports and wildlife photography and it is also an extremely handy advancement for anyone looking to shoot HD video.
