This fast, f/2 telephoto lens renders shallow depth-of-field with beautiful background blur (bokeh), and is ideal for photographers seeking to freeze movement with fast shutter speeds in low lighting conditions. Additionally, Vibration Reduction II, Nano Crystal Coat and the inclusion of the A/M focusing mode are now employed helping to produce razor sharp images under the most demanding conditions.
Fast, Prime Telephoto Lens
Upgraded, fast, f/2 prime telephoto lens with Nikon VR II image stabilization and Nano Crystal Coat produces razor sharp images under the most demanding conditions including indoor sports, wildlife or portraiture.
Automatic Tripod Detection Mode
Engages VR image stabilization when mounted on a tripod to minimize camera shake that occurs at shutter release.
Super ED Glass Element
Super ED glass excels at eliminating secondary spectrum and correcting chromatic aberration and offers low refractive index and lower dispersion. Also Super ED Glass is more resilient to rapid temperature changes.
Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization
Vibration Reduction, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture.
Nano Crystal Coat
Further reduces ghosting and internal lens flare across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image clarity.
Offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture settings.
