The Nikon AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF ED VR Nikkor zoom incorporates many of Nikon's most advanced lens design attributes such as Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass, Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) and Enhanced Vibration Reduction (VR II).
The Nikkor AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF ED VR offers the benefit of Enhanced VR II Vibration Reduction--a technology that makes it possible to take substantially sharper handheld pictures at slower shutter speeds than would otherwise be possible. This provides the advantage of being able to shoot more effectively in a much broader variety of challenging conditions. Based on Nikon specifications, users can take pictures at shutter speeds as many as 4 stops slower than they ordinarily could shoot without the image degrading blur associated with camera shake at slow shutter speeds.
Nikon's VR technology furthers picture taking potential with a choice of two modes to match most shooting conditions. VR Normal Mode primarily compensates for camera shake, and includes automatic panning detection, as well as automatic tripod detection. VR Active Mode effectively compensates for vibration in situations where it is more pronounced and more frequent, such as when shooting from a moving vehicle.
To enhance optical performance, the Nikon 70-300mm f4.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor features two Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements and three aspherical lens elements that provide for higher resolution, high-contrast images while minimizing chromatic aberration, astigmatism and other forms of distortion.
The lens also features Nikon's compact Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM), which combines fast autofocusing with quiet operation, as well as Internal Focusing (IF) construction that allows the lens to focus without changing its external size, improving balance and handling characteristics.
AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED Major Features
4.3x, 70-300mm telephoto zoom (picture angle, when used with Nikon DX format digital SLRs is equivalent to a 105-450mm on a 35mm format SLR)
The VRII minimizes camera shake by offering the equivalent of a shutter speed 4 stops* faster. Normal and Active modes are available
Two ED glass elements minimize chromatic aberration in the entire zoom range while ensuring high resolution and contrast. Outstanding Nikkor optical performance makes it suitable for photography with both Nikon digital and 35mm film SLR cameras
The SWM enables fast and quiet autofocusing, and smooth switching between autofocus and manual operation
Two focus modes are available — M/A and M
The Internal Focus (IF) design provides a constant lens length and eliminates rotation of the front lens element, facilitating the use of circular polarizing filters
The nine-blade rounded diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural
A flower-shaped bayonet hood is provided
67 mm filter attachment size (Non-rotate)
