Nikon AF-S 300mm, f/4E PF ED VR

Description

Bridging the distance with this 300 mm lens for the FX format. As the first NIKKOR lens with an F bayonet mount and a phase freshnel lens (PF), it offers the perfect blend of compact design, telephoto focal length and high image quality.

Ideal for sports and wildlife photography, travel photography, and detailed portrait photography, this lens is the smart choice for those who want to use a telephoto camera to fill the field of view, but not their bag excessively.
The combination of luminous intensity 1:4, a focal length of 300 mm and VR technology delivers the best results in a wide variety of shooting situations. The integrated diffraction lens reduces the size and weight of the lens.
A fluorine coating ensures a higher durability thanks to its water, dust and dirt-repellent properties.

Camera lens properties

i

Camera lens properties

A camera lens (also known as photographic lens, objective lens or photographic objective) is an optical lens or assembly of lenses used in conjunction with a camera body and mechanism to make images of objects either on photographic film or on other media capable of storing an image chemically or electronically.
While in principle a simple convex lens will suffice, in practice a compound lens made up of a number of optical lens elements is required to correct (as much as possible) the many optical aberrations that arise. Some aberrations will be present in any lens system. It is the job of the lens designer to balance these out and produce a design that is suitable for photographic use and possibly mass production.
A lens may be permanently fixed to a camera, or it may be interchangeable with lenses of different focal lengths, apertures, and other properties.

Telephoto lens
i

Telephoto lens

In photography and cinematography, a telephoto lens is a specific type of a long-focus lens in which the physical length of the lens is shorter than the focal length. This is achieved by incorporating a special lens group known as a telephoto group that extends the light path to create a long-focus lens in a much shorter overall design. The angle of view and other effects of long-focus lenses are the same for telephoto lenses of the same specified focal length. Long-focal-length lenses are often informally referred to as telephoto lenses although this is technically incorrect: a telephoto lens specifically incorporates the telephoto group.

Prime lens

In film and photography, a prime lens is either a photographic lens whose focal length is fixed, as opposed to a zoom lens, or it is the primary lens in a combination lens system.

Lens mount
i

Lens mount

A lens mount is an interface — mechanical and often also electrical — between a photographic camera body and a lens. It is confined to cameras where the body allows interchangeable lenses, most usually the single lens reflex type or any movie camera of 16 mm or higher gauge. Lens mounts are also used to connect optical components in instrumentation that may not involve a camera, such as the modular components used in optical laboratory prototyping which join via C-mount or T-mount elements.

Focal length

The focal length of an optical system is a measure of how strongly it converges (focuses) or diverges (diffuses) light. A system with a shorter focal length has greater optical power than one with a long focal length.

Focal Length APS-C / DX (35mm film equivalent)

In photography, the 35 mm equivalent focal length is a measure that indicates the angle of view of a particular combination of a camera lens and film or sensor size. The term is useful because most photographers experienced with interchangeable lenses are most familiar with the 35 mm film format.

Image stabilization
i

Image stabilization

Image stabilization (IS) is a family of techniques used to reduce blurring associated with the motion of a camera during exposure. Specifically, it compensates for pan and tilt (angular movement, equivalent to yaw and pitch) of a camera or other imaging device. It is used in image-stabilized binoculars, still and video cameras, and astronomical telescopes. With still cameras, camera shake is particularly problematic at slow shutter speeds or with long focal length (telephoto) lenses. With video cameras, camera shake causes visible frame-to-frame jitter in the recorded video. In astronomy, the problem of lens-shake is added to by variations in the atmosphere over time, which cause the apparent positions of objects to change.

Internal focusing
i

Internal focusing

Internal focusing, abbreviated IF, is a type of lens design in which the distance is not adjusted by shifting the entire lens, but only one or more lenses within the lens. The remaining lenses, especially the front lens, maintain their distance from the image capture plane (filament net, film or image sensor), which does not change the overall length of the lens.

Focusing

i

Focusing

In geometrical optics, a focus, also called an image point, is the point where light rays originating from a point on the object converge. Although the focus is conceptually a point, physically the focus has a spatial extent, called the blur circle. This non-ideal focusing may be caused by aberrations of the imaging optics. In the absence of significant aberrations, the smallest possible blur circle is the Airy disc, which is caused by diffraction from the optical system's aperture. Aberrations tend to get worse as the aperture diameter increases, while the Airy circle is smallest for large apertures.

Autofocus

Autofocus (or AF) is a feature of some optical systems that allows them to obtain (and in some systems to also continuously maintain) correct focus on a subject, instead of requiring the operator to adjust focus manually.

Diaphgragm properties

In optics, a diaphragm is a thin opaque structure with an opening (aperture) at its center. The role of the diaphragm is to stop the passage of light, except for the light passing through the aperture.

Minimum aperture f/
i

Minimum aperture f/

In optics, an aperture is a hole or an opening through which light travels. More specifically, the aperture of an optical system is the opening that determines the cone angle of a bundle of rays that come to a focus in the image plane. The aperture determines how collimated the admitted rays are, which is of great importance for the appearance at the image plane. If an aperture is narrow, then highly collimated rays are admitted, resulting in a sharp focus at the image plane. If an aperture is wide, then uncollimated rays are admitted, resulting in a sharp focus only for rays with a certain focal length. This means that a wide aperture results in an image that is sharp around what the lens is focusing on and blurred otherwise. The aperture also determines how many of the incoming rays are actually admitted and thus how much light reaches the image plane (the narrower the aperture, the darker the image for a given exposure time).

Empfohlen für Nikon D7100
Color Foto Logo

Edition 10/2015- Die 300-er Festbrennweite aus dem Hause Nikon schlägt mit einem Preis von 2000 Euro doch recht hoch zu Buche. Wenn man hier jedoch die dafür gebotene Leistung im Vergleich sieht, dann darf man hier durchaus von einem moderaten Preis sprechen. Die Kurven verlaufen hier sehr gleichmäßig, sowohl bei Blende 4 als auch 8 liegen diese hier fast übereinander. Schon offen erzielt das Objektiv mit integriertem Stabilisator aber bereits sehr gute Ergebnisse, sodass man es für den Einsatz an der Nikon D7100 absolut empfehlen kann.more

Funktioniert das Objektiv mit den Konvertern TC-14E III und TC-20E III auch an einer Nikon D7100? Evtl. gibt es da ja Probleme, da es sich bei der D7100 nicht um eine Vollformatkamera handelt?

Ich nutze das 300mm PF an einer D500 (auch eine APS-C/Crop Kamera) in Kombination mit einem TC-14E III und es funktioniert wunderbar und ist herrlich scharf. AF ist etwas langsamer als ohne, aber das ist kein grosses Problem. Die max. Blende wird aber durch den TC-14E von f/4 auf f/5.6 reduziert.

Bei dem TC-20E III wird die max. Blende auf f/8 reduziert, was gerade noch ausreichend fuer das Funktionieren des AF bei einer D7100 ist. Siehe: nikonusa.com/en/learn-and-e...

AF-S 300mm, f/4E PF ED VR

Mehr davon!

Super Objektiv, scharf, schneller und präziser Autofokus, gutes Gegenlichtverhalten.
Das Gewicht und die Grösse sind für die 300mm f/4 phänomenal. Zusammen mit dem TC-20E III hat man 600mm bei einer Schärfe und einem Gewicht, dass man das auch gut in die Berge mitnehmen kann (was bei dem 200-500 etwas schwieriger wäre).
Ich warte bereits gespannt auf den nächsten Coup von Nikon!
Leider ist der Gewichtsoptimierung eine Stativschelle zum Opfer gefallen. Tipp an die, die eine Stativschelle brauchen: Von Kirk Enterprise gibt es eine, die bereits einen Arca-Swiss-kompatiblen Anschluss besitzt.

un bon complément d'un zoom.

Optique légère et de faible encombrement. Un bon complement du zoom 24-70. Qualité optique excellente, bon piqué. Luminosité suffisante dans le viseur à F 4.0. Seul défaut majeur, le filter polarisant est impossible à retirer à mains nues, le pas de vis s'enfonce trop dans l'optique.

AF-S 300mm, f/4E PF ED VR

Very good for any occasion, not too heavy to carry, very good quality image

This is my favourite lens for every walk I am doing. Easy to carry, light and can be used without tripod as long the camera support higher ISO's. If you want to use a tripod, it misses the collar which can be bought separately. For my personal usage I took a third party brand (Kirk) to have a direct compatibility with the Arca-Swiss system otherwise the same collar than the 70-200 f/4 can be used.more
