The Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED AF-S VR is the long-overdue and welcome update to the original Nikon 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED AF VR. Key features include:
Improved 4-stop vibration reduction
Fast, nearly silent autofocus
Sharp, high-contrast images throughout the zoom range
Great for wildlife photography
Versatile Telephoto Zoom. Like its predecessor, the Nikon 80-400mm is a do-it-all telephoto zoom that’s ideal for shooting wildlife or anything that’s far away. This lens is compatible with Nikon’s entire line of F-mount DSLR cameras and features an improved 4-stop vibration-reduction system.
Improved Optical Design. There are also several notable optical improvements. The addition of one super ED (extra-low dispersion) element and four ED glass elements helps to minimize chromatic aberrations while providing sharp, high-contrast images throughout the zoom range.
Three Focus Modes. You have three focus modes to choose from: Manual Focus mode; A/M (Auto-Priority Manual) mode, which enables an easy transition from autofocus to manual during autofocus operation; and M/A (autofocus with manual override, MF priority) mode, which allows switching from AF to MF with virtually no lag time by turning the focusing ring.
Accessories Included. This rental includes a tripod ring for use with a tripod/monopod, and a removable hood to help prevent lens flare.
