Ultra-Quick Focusing for Fast, Unpredictable Action
The Nikon 500mm f5.6E PF ED VR lens delivers the incredible speed and accuracy you need to capture those unmissable moments, from acrobatic sporting stunts to once-in-a-lifetime wildlife sightings. The lens’ electromagnetic aperture mechanism and Silent Wave Motor allow you to accurately track fast or unpredictably moving subjects. They also help provide stable exposure control, so you’ll get consistent results even during high-speed burst shooting.
Powerful Vibration Reduction (VR)
Even in dim light or unsteady hands, the Nikon 500mm f5.6E PF ED VR lens can capture clear, razor-sharp detail. It’s equipped with enhanced Vibration Reduction (VR) that (in NORMAL mode) lets you shoot at shutter speeds 4 stops slower without added blur. VR SPORT Mode, meanwhile, offers superior viewfinder stability tailored for fast action shooting.
Next-Level Optical Performance
Thanks to advanced NIKKOR technologies, the Nikon 500mm f5.6E PF ED VR lens offers next-level image quality. As well as a Nano Crystal Coat that combats ghosting and flare in harsh lighting, this super-telephoto prime lens utilises Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements and an innovative Phase Fresnel lens design. This results in not only brilliant sharpness and contrast with minimal colour fringing, but also a remarkably lighter and more compact lens.
Go Further; Shoot Longer
Go further and shoot longer. At 237mm long, the Nikon 500mm f5.6E PF ED VR lens is outstandingly compact, and at around 1,460g it’s less than half the weight of a regular 500mm full frame prime lens. This makes it significantly easier to transport and handhold – perfect for travelling, shooting without a tripod, and keeping up with the action.
Built for the Toughest Conditions
The Nikon 500mm f5.6E PF ED VR telephoto lens is made to withstand the toughest of shooting conditions. It’s both highly durable and dust- and drip-resistant, and features a fluorine coat that helps keep the front element free from dust, water, oil and dirt. This gives you the freedom and confidence to pursue almost any shot, whether it’s in the rain or out in the desert.
