Use the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500 mm f/4G ED VR Telephoto Prime Lens with your Nikon DSLR to achieve great long-range shots of subjects like wild animals, sports events, concerts and more.
Equipped with a VR II image stabilisation system, the Nikon 500 mm f/4G Lens keeps your subjects looking crisp and well-defined. It's an essential feature for this long-barrelled telephoto lens, giving you great stability for more consistent photography.
Even if you're shooting continuously at fast rates, you'll enjoy great AF tracking, allowing you to focus on composition while the lens takes care of the hard work. With VR II you'll enjoy similar effects to shooting at a shutter speed 3.0 stops faster.
Reliable telephoto performance
The Nikon 500 mm f/4G is great for shooting live sports – it's got a dedicated SPORT mode that compensates for fast, erratically-moving subjects by implementing VR to deliver more in-focus frames.
Combined with a dust-preventing fluorine front element coating, the lens' VR system helps reduce blur and more stable viewfinder images. An electromagnetic diaphragm helps to control exposure for greater lens reliability.
In fact, the vibration reduction system gives you an effect similar to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster when set to NORMAL mode.
Light and clever design
With its two fluorite lens elements, the NIKKOR Telephoto Lens offers you a lighter construction for easier use and transportation. You'll be able to attach it quickly, ensuring fewer lost moments.
Switch smoothly between landscape and portrait orientations using the handy tripod collar ring with bearings, even if you're photographing moving subjects. Optical performance is enhanced by three ED glass elements and a Nano Crystal Coat, which reduce chromatic aberrations and ghosting.
Enjoy great photography over longer distances with the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500 mm f/4G ED VR Telephoto Prime Lens.
