Nikon Zoom Lens
If you are searching for a zoom lens to carry out sports and action photography with your Nikon DSLR camera, then this Nikon Telephoto Zoom Lens is a highly recommended choice. The telephoto zoom lens is suitable for both full-frame Nikon DSLR camera and is compatible with the DX-format SLRs from the brand. The VR technology of the camera helps counter camera shake effects on photographs so that you get crisp and sharp pictures.
Optical image stabilizing mechanism
Nikon employs its proprietary optical image stabilization technology called Vibration Reduction (VR) that provides up to 2.0 stops of advantage. The technology supports handheld shooting at relatively slow shutter speed settings or narrower aperture. Apart from still photography, the VR technology helps shoot jerk-free video clips. You can take advantage of this image stabilization feature to create beautiful panning images. Two modes of VR- image plane and viewfinder are also available.
Focal length range
The lens offers 80-400mm of focal length range when attached to a full frame FX-format digital SLR camera. If attached to a more common DX-format SLR camera, the user will get an equivalent focal length range of 120-600mm. The focal length range provided by this lens is highly useful for shooting close-ups of subjects such as wild animals and birds far away. It is also great for shooting actions or various sports from far-off distances.
ED & SIC
Three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements help curb light deviation to get high resolution and high contrast, even at maximum apertures. Nikon also employs Super Integrated Coating to minimize Ghosting and flares. This eventually helps you get crisp looking images.
The telephoto zoom lens weighs about 1360 g and gives a stable feeling while shooting with it. 5x zoom ratio offers you a lot of liberty while composing your frame without shifting your position. With 9 diaphragm blades, the lens has a roundish opening that helps produce amazing, detailed photographs. Even though it is a telephoto lens, you can shoot from pretty close to your subject, owing to its minimum focusing distance of 2.3 metres. You have the option to choose auto focus or manual focus settings, as per your convenience. The lens has a filter size of 77mm. The front element of the lens does not rotate when you change the zoom or focus.
