  • With the lightest body in its class*, realized by the employment of a Phase Fresnel (PF) lens element, as well as superior weight balance, agile shooting for capturing decisive moments of distant subjects is enabled, even handheld.
    • *Among f/6.3 and faster lenses, including those with a focal length of 600 mm, for full-frame/FX-format interchangeable-lens mirrorless cameras, available as of October 11, 2023. Statement based on Nikon research.
  • The adoption of a stepping motor (STM) achieves fast and accurate AF while also ensuring excellent quietness with reduced operational sounds — essential in sensitive situations.
  • Powerful Vibration Reduction (VR) function with an effect equivalent to a 5.5-stop* increase in shutter speed allows shooting handheld without the worry of camera shake. When using a camera that is compatible with Synchro VR activation, the effect extends to 6.0 stops*.
    • *Based on CIPA Standard; in NORMAL mode, when attached to a full-frame/FX-format mirrorless camera.
  • The lens body demonstrates superior dust- and drip-resistant performance*, while anti-fouling fluorine coat is applied to the frontmost lens element, letting users continue shooting uninterrupted, even in adverse conditions.
    • *Thorough dust- and drip-resistance is not guaranteed in all situations and under all conditions.
