How can perfection be achieved? With refined details that prove themselves in practical use. The outstanding performance of this latest model of the proven lens series ensures that you are always at the forefront.
Enhanced AF tracking and exposure control and the SPORT VR mode make it possible to shoot fantastic series of shots. A brand-new optical design ensures optimum image quality from edge to edge. Thanks to Nikon's nanocrystalline coating, ghost images and scattered light are effectively minimized. The integration of a fluorite glass lens in the front lens area saves weight while at the same time providing excellent optical properties and also leads to improved balance.
PLAY IN THE TOP LEAGUE: 1:2.8 TELEZOOM LENS:
Sport, action, news, reports: this lens in FX format takes you to a new level. The focal length of 70 to 200 mm (corresponds to 105 to 300 mm when using a Nikon digital SLR camera with a DX-format image sensor) covers the most commonly used telephoto range. The high luminous intensity of 1:2.8 offers great photographic freedom when using selective sharpness or low light. The professional zoom lens delivers excellent performance even at the aperture and the autofocus works extremely fast and reliably. The lower close-up limit is 1.1 m, the maximum magnification has been increased from 1:9.1 to 1:4.8. Photographers working with Nikon's high-resolution image sensors and high frame rate SLR cameras are well prepared for any situation with this new telephoto zoom.
SHARP, FREE OF CAMERA SHAKE, FAST: IMPROVED IMAGE STABILIZER (VR):
Keep up with the action without compromising sharpness. Nikon's Image Stabilizer compensates for camera shake and allows sharp shots with exposure times up to 4 f-stops longer than without VR. ¹ The Image Stabilizer, which reduces camera shake caused by camera movements, is activated as soon as the shutter release button is pressed down to the first pressure point and offers various VR modes. The SPORT-VR mode provides a smoother viewfinder image when shooting extremely fast movements or when shooting subjects that move unexpectedly. The Image Stabilizer provides almost the same frame rate and shutter release delay values as when VR is off. The object also detects whether a tripod is being used and automatically adjusts the VR modes Normal and SPORT.
PRECISION OF THE OBJECTIVE-CAMERA COMBINATION: OUTSTANDING AF TRACKING AND EXPOSURE CONTROL:
Designed specifically for use with Nikon's fast, professional SLR cameras, the lens responds quickly and accurately to distance changes. Fast-moving subjects can be reliably tracked, even if they move unexpectedly and at different speeds or approach the camera. And better AF tracking is not the only innovation. Even during fast continuous shooting, the electro-magnetic aperture mechanism ensures maximum precision and consistency in the exposure control of images. And Nikon's Silent-Wave (SWM) motor guarantees extremely fast and quiet autofocus with the ability to access manual focus at any time.…more
