Zoom Versatility Meets Prime Lens Performance
When you shoot with the Nikon 120-300mm f2.8 FL ED SR VR telephoto, anticipate quality on par with a prime lens. The Nikon 120-300mm f2.8 gives you high resolution and clarity throughout each frame, thanks to Nikon’s newly developed Short-wavelength Refractive (SR) lens element. Powerfully reducing ghost and flare effects, ARNEO and Nano Crystal coatings mean you needn’t worry about incident light marring your shots. Choose your viewpoint and framing without restrictions.
Constant f/2.8 Brightness/Speed
Enjoy the technical and creative possibilities afforded by a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture. Whether zoomed all the way in or out, the Nikon 120-300mm lens excels at freezing fast action and shooting in low light, be it indoors, or outdoors when it’s dark. The wide aperture also enables soft, out-of-focus backgrounds, ideal for giving your images an artistic touch.
Powerful VR & Autofocus Systems
Outstanding Vibration Reduction (VR) and autofocus (AF) systems make the Nikon 120-300mm f2.8 FL ED SR VR lens fit for the most challenging shoots. Reducing hand shake blur by the equivalent of 4 stops, VR helps ensure sharp stills and smooth video – as does highly accurate AF detection and tracking. VR [SPORT] mode lets you track erratic movements with ease and precision, delivering crisp focus whether you’re shooting a professional game or your kids’ practice sessions.
