Product Information

product description

High-performance telephoto zoom lens for use with FX-format SLRs. With a broad 80-400mm focal range and superior optical design, this lens is suited to a variety of subjects including wildlife, landscapes and sports.

Nikon’s Vibration Reduction system lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to four stops slower for steady images at any focal length when shooting handheld. Four ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and one Super ED glass elements correct chromatic aberration and the kind of optical colour defects that can occur at longer focal lengths.

Superb optical performance
Four ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements and one Super ED glass element help correct chromatic aberration and optical colour defects, which can occur at longer focal lengths.

Vibration Reduction
(VR) system with Normal, Active and Tripod modes. Minimizes camera shake and lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to four stops slower.

Silent Wave Motor
(SWM) enables fast, quiet and accurate autofocus.

Three focus modes
A/M (autofocus with manual override, AF priority), M/A (autofocus with manual override, manual priority) and M (manual focus).

AF with teleconverter AF works even when a 1.4x teleconverter is attached to an f/8-compatible camera.

Focus limit switch
“FULL” and ∞-6m, which lets you reduce focusing time when shooting within a specific distance range.

Lens barrel lock
(when the barrel is collapsed at 80mm position) prevents the barrel extending under its weight when the lens is not in use.
