The Nikon AF NIKKOR 80-400 mm f/4.5-5.6D VR ED Telephoto Zoom Lens offers a powerful zoom with vibration reduction (VR). VR operation stabilises the image using an optical system that allows the handheld use of a shutter speed 3 stops (8x) slower.
Shoot stunning compositions
This greatly increases the usefulness of the lens in low light, and makes possible the use of smaller apertures while handheld, giving the photographer more control over depth of field.
The optical Vibration Reduction in this lens stabilises the image in the viewfinder too, making focusing and composing easier, particularly at the long end of the zoom. However, VR can be cancelled to save battery power if so desired.
Sharp, detailed and natural
Optically this lens offers high quality for a lens of this specification, with the three ED glass elements ensuring minimum chromatic aberration (which leads to colour fringing) and excellent sharpness across the zoom range.
Panning is automatically detected by the VR mechanism, allowing the photographer to take advantage of VR while capturing the subject's movement.
The Nikon ED AF NIKKOR 80-400 mm f/4.5-5.6D Telephoto Zoom Lens employs a nine-bladed rounded diaphragm to render out-of-focus highlights smoothly, enhancing the appearance of depth in the image and minimising distractions in the out-of-focus region of the photograph.
This ED AF NIKKOR 80-400 mm f/4.5-5.6D Telephoto Zoom Lens is ideal for anyone needing the flexibility of a powerful zoom lens with a huge reach of 400 mm, combined with Nikon's VR system to permit handheld operation.
