Description - Nikon 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor Lens

New Lens Offers Enhanced Nikon VR (VRII) Vibration Reduction System in a Compact, 4.3x Zoom Lens for Nikon DX Format Digital and 35mm Film SLR Cameras
Nikon introduced the new Nikon 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G†Lens, a 4.3x zoom lens that is ideal for telephoto shooting opportunities.†Nikon 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G†VR Zoom-Nikkor Lens incorporates many of Nikon's most advanced lens design attributes such as Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass, Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) and Enhanced Vibration Reduction (VR II), in a design engineered for use with both Nikon DX format digital and 35mm film SLR cameras. With a high-powered†Nikon 70-300mm F/4.5-5.6G†Lens focal length range, the lens is ideal for sports, action, wildlife, travel and portrait photography, among other telephoto applications. When used on a Nikon DX format digital SLR,†Nikon 70-300 mm F4.5-5.6G†VR Zoom-Nikkor Lens approximates the picture angle performance of a 105-450mm lens on a 35mm SLR camera.

"Nikon's range of Nikkor lenses with Vibration Reduction technology has grown substantially and the new†Nikon 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S†Lens is another excellent addition, offering both Nikon digital and 35mm SLR photographers an advanced high-powered zoom lens in a surprisingly compact, lightweight design," said Edward Fasano, general manager for Marketing, SLR Systems Products, at Nikon Inc. "High quality lens design requires a challenging blend of art, science and, of course, photographic experience. With the new Nikon 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G†VR Zoom-Nikkor Lens, Nikon engineers have again met that challenge, producing a lens whose optical performance delivers clarity and contrast typically found only in lenses costing substantially more," he added.

Beyond the†Nikon 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G†Lens incredible optical versatility is the benefit of Enhanced VR II Vibration Reduction -- an innovation that makes it possible to take substantially sharper handheld pictures at slower shutter speeds than would otherwise be possible. This provides the distinct advantage of being able to shoot more effectively in a much broader variety of challenging conditions. With the new†Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G†VR Zoom-Nikkor Lens the VR advantage, users can take pictures at shutter speeds as many as 4 stops slower* than they ordinarily could shoot without the image degrading blur associated with camera shake at slow shutter speeds. Nikon's advanced VR technology further enhances picture taking potential with a choice of two modes to match most shooting conditions with Nikon 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S†Lens. VR Normal Mode primarily compensates for camera shake, and includes automatic panning detection, as well as automatic tripod detection. VR Active Mode effectively compensates for vibration in situations where it is more pronounced and more frequent, such as when shooting from a moving vehicle.

To further ensure outstanding optical performance, the†Nikon 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G†VR Zoom-Nikkor Lens features two Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements and three complex aspherical lens elements that provide for higher resolution, high-contrast images while minimizing chromatic aberration, astigmatism and other forms of distortion. The†Nikon 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G†Lens also features Nikon's compact Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM), which combines fast and precise auto focusing with super-quiet operation, as well as Internal Focusing (IF) construction that allows the†Nikon 70-300mm F4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S†Lens to focus without changing its external size, improving balance and handling characteristics.

I am constantly amazed at the speed and quality of your service. My new Nikon lens, ordered yesterday (Friday) arrived at my house in Mid Wales before noon today (Saturday). This is the third item I recall ordering from you and, in each case I have had a similar, excellent, service at a very competitive price.

Thank you.
