Super Telephoto Zoom. Sometimes a single super tele focal length just won’t do. You could reach for the professional Nikon 200-400mm f/4G AF-S VR II, but it’s a beast. The 200-500mm f/5.6E ED AF-S VR serves as a very capable travel-friendly alternative. Its focal range and constant f/5.6 aperture make it well-suited for daytime sports and wildlife photography.
Vibration Reduction. The in-lens stabilizer provides up to 4.5-stops of correction to help minimize camera shake. It has a dedicated VR Sport Mode that recognizes panning motion, ensuring accurate compensation is applied where needed. Combined with its rotatable tripod collar, the 200-500mm f/5.6 is perfect for use with a monopod system.
Silent Wave Autofocus Motor. The Silent Wave Motor provides quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance. The internal focusing design retains the overall lens length during operation while contributing to a lighter overall weight. Full-time manual focus override is as simple as rotating the focus ring at any time.
Electromagnetic Aperture. Provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
Optics. Three extra-low dispersion glass elements minimize chromatic aberrations and distortions, while Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating eliminate internal reflections for reduced lens flare and ghosting.
