Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm
F5.6E ED VR Lens:
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm F5.6E ED VR Lens is a telephoto zoom characterized
by a constant f/5.6 maximum aperture for consistent performance throughout the
zoom range. The optical design incorporates three extra-low dispersion glass
elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions for increased sharpness
and color accuracy. Also contributing to improved image quality, a Super
Integrated Coating has been applied to lens elements to lessen flare and
ghosting for improved contrast and clarity.
A Silent Wave Motor AF system produces fast, near-silent focusing performance
that suits both stills shooting and movie recording which can instantly be
manually overridden by simply turning the manual focus ring. Further
contributing to photographing in fast-paced situations and difficult lighting,
VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization compensates for the effects of
camera shake by up to 4.5 shutter speed stops. Additionally, an electromagnetic
aperture mechanism is integrated into the lens design to provide greater
exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with
faster continuous shooting rates.
Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm F5.6E ED VR Lens Overview
Designed for use with FX image sensors, this lens is also compatible with DX sensors where it will provide a
300-750mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/5.6 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range.
Three extra-low dispersion glass elements work to reduce chromatic aberrations; improve overall image
sharpness, clarity, and color fidelity; and help to minimize the overall weight of the lens.
A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections for
a marked reduction in lens flare and ghosting.
Vibration Reduction image stabilization helps to reduce the appearance of camera shake for up to 4.5 shutter
speed stops, benefiting this lens' use in low-light conditions.
Additionally, a designated Sport Mode is well-suited to working in fast-paced conditions where panning and other
lateral camera movements are more common.
Silent Wave Motor autofocus mechanism provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance that is ideal
for photographing fast-moving subjects.
Full-time manual focus override allows instant switching between AF and MF focusing systems by just rotating
the focus ring at any time.
Internal focusing design maintains the overall lens length during operation and contributes to a lighter
overall weight, as well as a minimum focusing distance of 7.2'.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially
beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
This mechanism limits the compatibility of this lens to the following cameras: D5 series, D4 series, D3 series,
D810, D810A, D800 series, D750, D700, D610, D600, D500, D300 series, D7200, D7100, D7000, D5600,
D5500, D5300, D5200, D5100, D5000, D3400, D3300, D3200, D3100, Nikon 1 J1, J2, J3, J4 with FT-1, Nikon 1 V1, V2,
V3 with FT-1, and Nikon 1 S1, S2 with FT-1.
A rotating tripod collar offers well-balanced support for photographing atop a tripod or monopod with either
vertical or horizontal shooting orientations.
