Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 300mm F2.8G ED VR II Lens

This fast f/2.8 telephoto lens features Nikonís VR image stabilization technology and Nano Crystal Coat and high-speed AF for exceptional optical performance. Super-fast telephoto AF-S lens with Vibration Reduction (VR) and Nano Crystal Coat.

Nikon's exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-high-speed auto focusing with exceptional accuracy and powerful super-quiet operation. These lenses have a Focal Length (FL) fix by opening fix also in F 2.8, also equipped with the VR II technology, which ensures the image will not shake even though holding the lens. This new version includes a 4-stop image stabilization system where the last version was only a 3-stop. At the same time , a brand new 2x teleconverters has been announced that contains new aspherical lens elements for greatly improved optical performance.

The latest edition of the NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8 lens advances one of the most popular fast-aperture focal lengths for sports, nature and wildlife photography, demonstrating Nikon commitment to professional photographers through the continued development of the optical fidelity and sharpness.

Vibration Reduction (VR) technology offers the equivalent of using a shutter speed 3 stops faster. In addition, active vibration mode selection is achievable for use in situations with a moving boat, car or plane and provides VR performance with automatic detection of panning. VR on/off mode available. Internal Focusing (IF) design for smoother focusing.

Extraordinarily high optical performance; well-matched with both 35mm and digital SLR models. Three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements effectively compensate for magnification and virtually eliminate chromatic aberration. Meniscus protective glass element overcomes internal reflections from digital imaging sensor.

Focus mode switch enables quick response to changing situations with quick-switching between M/A (Manual-Priority Autofocus) and M (Manual focus) modes. AF operation switch enables easy selection of settings. Focus preset function instantly recalls a preset focal point. Focus limiter switch limits AF-servo movement to a selected shooting distance range.
