Overview

Lightweight, convenient, super telephoto lens optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness on both the Nikon FX- (23.9 x 36mm) and DX-format image sensors. New tripod detection mode reduces vibration that may occur due to shutter release when mounted on a tripod. Exclusive Nano Crystal Coat and a meniscus protective glass element combine to further reduce ghosting and flare for even greater image clarity. Rugged, reliable and lightweight, this lens features a magnesium die-cast barrel and professional-grade dust- and moisture-resistant construction. Compatible with TC-14EII (AF/MF), TC-17EII (MF), TC-20EII (MF) and TC-20EIII (MF) Teleconverters. Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture. Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-high-speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and powerful, super-quiet operation. Three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements control chromatic aberrations while enhancing color, sharpness and contrast, even at the widest aperture settings. New A/M focus mode provides secure switching between auto and manual focus operation.

This lens has increased my desire to learn motor-sport photography. With its wide aperture and fast response, I have captured some really good pictures. The auto image stabilizer compensated for my over enthusiastic moments with the camera. I guess Nikon has a new believer.

Great for a commercial photographer

I always try to get the pictures of various athletes from different angles. With this lens, I have successfully captured candid shots of my favorite athletes. The slow speed capturing feature has left me asking for more. The lens are sturdy and resistant to the elements, an ideal companion for any photographer.

I have used this lens for wildlife photography, and I feel it stands true to its reputation. The VR-II helps in stabilizing the vibration to give you a sharp image. The best feature is its ability to adapt to almost any climate. The moisture and dust sealing is just a wonderful feature to this lens. I feel this product is definitely made for wildlife photographers. Well I would recommend this lens to anyone interested in wildlife photography.

Elements / Groups:
The individual pieces of glass that form the overall optical construction. Most lenses have between four and eleven elements to bend the light rays to ensure a perfectly formed image appears on the light sensitive surface, such as a film or CCD. The elements are arranged in groups and may be seen in specification sheets as, for example, 6 elements in 4 groups. That configuration may have two single elements and the other four grouped in pairs.
