Spanning a long, versatile zoom range, the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens from Nikon
is a telephoto zoom characterized by a constant f/5.6 maximum aperture
for consistent performance throughout the zoom range. The optical design
incorporates three extra-low dispersion glass elements to reduce
chromatic aberrations and distortions for increased sharpness and color
accuracy. Also contributing to improved image quality, a Super
Integrated Coating has been applied to lens elements to lessen flare and
ghosting for improved contrast and clarity.
A Silent Wave Motor AF system produces fast, near-silent focusing
performance that suits both stills shooting and movie recording, which
can instantly be manually overridden by simply turning the manual focus
ring. Further contributing to photographing in fast-paced situations and
difficult lighting, VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization
compensates for the effects of camera shake by up to 4.5 shutter speed
stops. Additionally, an electromagnetic aperture mechanism is integrated
into the lens design to provide greater exposure control stability that
is especially beneficial when working with faster continuous shooting
for use with FX image sensors, this lens is also compatible with DX
sensors where it will provide a 300-750mm equivalent focal length range.

Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to
suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast
and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance
along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design
is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during
focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Reduction image stabilization helps to reduce the appearance of camera
shake for up to 4.5 shutter speed stops, benefiting this lens' use in
low-light conditions. Additionally, a designated Sport Mode is
well-suited to working in fast-paced conditions where panning and other
lateral camera movements are more common.
rotating tripod collar offers well-balanced support for photographing
atop a tripod or monopod with either vertical or horizontal shooting
electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control
stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast
continuous shooting rates.
- Compatible with optional AF-S Teleconverter TC-14, TC-17, and TC-20 teleconverters.
