FX-format compatible, telephoto zoom lens featuring focal-length range from 120 to 300 mm* with a constant bright maximum aperture of f/2.8.

* When attached to a DX-format SLR, the angle of view is equivalent to that of a 180-450 mm lens in FX/35mm format.

The latest optical system employing one newly developed SR lens, one ED glass and two fluorite lens elements achieves resolution equivalent to that of a prime 300 mm lens.

The new SR (Short-wavelength Refractive) lens, a high- and specialized-dispersion glass lens that significantly refracts light with wavelengths shorter than that of blue, greatly contributes to minimizing color bleeding caused by chromatic aberration.

Ghost and flare effects caused by incident light are effectively reduced via the simultaneous use of ARNEO Coat and Nano Crystal Coat, enabling the capture of sharp and clear images even when a light source is located within the frame.

Enhanced AF servo drive control results in more accurate subject tracking based on AF detection results, while tracking performance even for moving subjects that radically change speed is improved with higher-speed inversion of AF drive.

Powerful Vibration Reduction (VR) function providing an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops* faster in NORMAL mode also employs SPORT mode that is particularly effective when shooting quickly and erratically moving subjects.

* Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when attached to an FX-format digital SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.

By employing a fluorite lens element and magnesium alloy, a lightweight and durable body is achieved, providing stress-free shooting. Also, the zoom ring, focus function buttons, tripod collar ring and controls are all designed to ensure superior operability for more comfortable shooting.

Superb dust- and drip-resistant capability and Nikon's fluorine coat ensuring high antifouling performance for enhanced reliability.
