Extensive Reach & Outstanding Precision

The Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6 E ED VR AF-S lens combines extensive reach with outstanding precision to capture the most challenging of subjects, from rare and elusive wildlife to soaring aircraft. Immaculate resolving power brings sharpness to every in-focus detail and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements minimise chromatic aberration to uphold the highest optical quality, whatever your chosen focal length. A constant f5.6 maximum aperture ensures you can maintain your shutter speed and ISO setting even when zooming in.

State-of-the-Art Vibration Reduction (VR)

The Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6 VR lens’ state-of-the-art Vibration Reduction (VR) means you can capture distant action—from white-knuckle sporting feats to a speeding cheetah—while minimising unintentional blur. In NORMAL mode VR offers an impressive 4.5 stops of shutter speed compensation, while SPORT mode enhances viewfinder stability when you’re photographing randomly and rapidly moving subjects.

Uncompromising Accuracy

The fast-paced world of wildlife, sports and action photography demands uncompromising levels of accuracy. The Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6 VR lens achieves this thanks to an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism (which provides stable, reliable auto-exposure control during high-speed burst shooting) and a Silent Wave Motor that boosts autofocus (AF) precision. This gives you the best chance of capturing the perfect moment, just as you envisage it.

Internal Focus & Focus Lock

For superior balance and handling, the Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6 VR lens incorporates an internal focusing system that stops the lens from extending when you adjust focus. The lens also features a zoom lock to prevent unintentional zoom drift, helping keep the lens zoomed in to the right focal length at all times.

Suitable for Handheld Shooting & Tripod Mounting

Capturing swift and elusive subjects requires not only a long zoom but also some freedom of movement and flexibility in technique. Measuring just 267.5mm in length and weighing approximately 2090g*, the Nikon 200-500mm lens is suitable for both handheld shooting and tripod mounting – ideal for pursuing birds in the bush or tracking and panning racing cars.
