The Nikon 500mm f/5.6E AF-S PF ED VR is a prosumer-grade compact super telephoto prime lens designed for Nikon FX full-frame DSLRs. Key features include:

  • Nikon’s most compact, lightweight 500mm telephoto prime

  • Four-stop vibration reduction

  • Fast, nearly silent autofocus and full-time manual focus

  • Excellent for daytime sports, wildlife, and action photography

Compact, Lightweight Super Telephoto Prime. The 500mm f/5.6E AF-S PF ED VR is Nikon’s lightest and most compact 500mm super tele, making it a very capable travel-friendly lens. It’s just over 9.0 inches long and weighs a mere 3.2 lbs. Its focal range and constant f/5.6 aperture make it well-suited for daytime sports, wildlife, and action photography.

Vibration Reduction. The in-lens stabilizer provides up to four 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 500mm f/5.6E is perfect for use with a monopod system. Also of note is a Tripod Mode that detects and helps counteract ground vibrations when working with a support 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.

Advanced Optics. One Phase Fresnel element and three extra-low dispersion glass elements minimize chromatic aberrations and distortions, while Nikon’s Nano Crystal and Super Integrated Coatings eliminate internal reflections for reduced lens flare and ghosting.
