Extensive reach & outstanding precision

The Nikon AF-S 200-500mm f5.6E ED VR Lens combines extensive reach with outstanding precision to capture the most challenging of subjects. Immaculate resolving power brings sharpness to every in-focus detail and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements minimise chromatic aberration to uphold the highest optical integrity, whatever your chosen focal length. A constant f/5.6 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 f5.6E ED VR Lens’ state-of-the-art Vibration Reduction (VR) means you can capture distant action—from white-knuckle sporting feats to a soaring jet or speeding cheetah—while minimising unintentional blur. In NORMAL mode VR offers the equivalent of 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 AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED 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.

Internal focus & focus lock

For added usability and stability, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED 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.

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 f5.6E ED VR Lens is suitable for both handheld
shooting and tripod mounting – ideal for pursuing birds in the bush or tracking and panning racing
cars.
