To capture that elusive shot of a rare bird in flight or an athlete’s awe-inspiring performance, speed, precision and discreetness are vital.

For extra usability and stability, the Nikon AF-S 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens features an internal focusing system to stop the lens from extending when you adjust focus. The lens also incorporates a focus limiter to enhance AF speed when you’re shooting within a given focal range, and a zoom lock to prevent unintentional lens creep when the lens is not in use.
