Nikon 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6

Nikon 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6


Discover photographic possibilities unique to super-telephoto lenses with this extraordinary 1 NIKKOR zoom. Fill the frame with faraway action or give your images a busy, compressed look. You'll also appreciate the shallow depth of field when shooting at wide apertures, which makes subjects stand out from backgrounds. The focal length of 189 to 810mm*2 covers everything from telephoto to super telephoto for outstanding compositional freedom. Compact dimensions and a featherweight feel combine with vibration reduction (VR) to enhance handheld shooting performance. In addition, the lens uses Nikon's exclusive Super ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass and Nano Crystal Coat to produce exceptionally clean images. Main subjects are sharply defined while out-of-focus areas exhibit smooth, clean blur. For excellent results when shooting at super-telephoto focal lengths, a variety of functions and accessories are available such as a focusing limit switch for autofocus and tripod mount TR-N100 (option). 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 is a highly portable, easy-to-handle lens that offers superlative performance for photographing wildlife, landscapes, airplanes, motor sports, trains and athletic meets.
