Whether shooting in sports venues or outside at night, the AF-S NIKKOR 120–300mm f/2.8E excels with its extraordinary resolving power and AF performance. This remarkable lens also marks the introduction of a much-anticipated focal length range. Now, DSLR photographers who want to shoot at 300 mm no longer need to be tied to a single focal length. Nor do they need to risk optical performance by using a zoom lens with a teleconverter attached.
In a step forward for optical performance, the 120-300mm pro-grade lens uses Nikon’s new SR glass, as well as ED glass to combat chromatic aberration. As a result, colour fringing is greatly reduced, and harder-to-control blue light (short wavelength spectrum) is thoroughly compensated for. Images are sharper than ever before and contrast is exceptional.
Professional F-mount telephoto zoom lens. Covers the versatile 120–300 mm focal length range with a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture.
Smooth, precise AF. Performance equivalent to a prime lens keeps pace with fast-moving or erratic subjects. An electromagnetic diaphragm ensures precise exposures at high frame rates.
Advanced optical design. 25 elements in 19 groups, with Nikon’s ED glass and SR glass as well as ARNEO and Nano Crystal coatings. Chromatic aberration, coma, ghosting, and flare are thoroughly countered.
Rock-steady VR. Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) gives you a four-stop advantage, even with a teleconverter activated.
Renowned Nikon ergonomics. Assignable function buttons, smooth switching between horizontal and vertical orientations, and more.
Integrated tripod foot. Faces the front of the lens for optimum balance and more comfortable transportation.
Tough build. Solid construction and extensive sealing readies this lens for trackside conditions in any weather.
