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.

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.

Professional Ease & Reliability

Outstandingly operable and reliable, the Nikon 120-300mm f2.8 FL ED SR VR lens was designed with professionals firmly in mind. Newly added controls, like an easy-to-access memory function, streamline your shooting. They also allow you to swap seamlessly between vertical and horizontal shooting when using a tripod or monopod. You can even change AF-area modes via the lens, and so maintain your shooting posture while fine-tuning your settings. Considerably lightweight and thoroughly dust and drip-resistant, the Nikon 120-300mm f2.8 is a telephoto lens that won’t hold you back.
