  • Pack lighter, go further:
  • Nikon's legendary 500mm super telephoto lens is now nearly 2 pounds lighter than the previous model and ready for the most demanding conditions. With brilliant optical performance, improved AF tracking, a high-speed electromagnetic diaphragm that keeps pace with Nikon's fastest DSLRs plus VR image stabilization, the AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR is a game-changer for outdoor, sports, action and nature photographers or anyone looking to get the most out of their current DSLR. The lens comes with a new lightweight hard-shell case.
  • Sharp and steady: Nikon's superior VR image stabilization:
  • Pros know camera movement during exposure robs sharpness. Nikon's VR image stabilization counteracts camera shake and vibration up to 4.0 stops, a must-have feature when working handheld, on a monopod or even a tripod. A specialized Sports Mode is optimized for camera pans and fast-action sports, and the Tripod Mode eliminates the subtle ground vibrations that are constantly passing through a tripod or monopod. Capture subjects with outstanding sharpness, even in low light.
  • Exceptional burst shooting: Superior AF tracking and exposure control:
  • Track fast moving subjects-even those moving erratically, at random speeds or approaching the camera quickly-with tack-sharp AF precision. During high-speed continuous shooting, the electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism operates in sync with the camera shutter for fast automatic exposure control and consistency between shots, even when using a compatible teleconverter.
  • Ready for the field: Lightweight, durable and reliable:
  • This is a lens built for tough assignments. A new magnesium alloy lens barrel and fluorite elements reduce the overall weight by nearly 2 pounds versus its predecessor. The protective front meniscus is coated with Nikon's non-stick fluorine coat, which makes it easier to wipe off water, dirt and smudges. Ball bearings in the tripod collar ring ensure smooth transitions between horizontal and vertical shooting.
  • SPORT Vibration Reduction:
  • For pros shooting fast and erratic moving sports subjects, using the SPORT VR mode will give you a more stable viewfinder image, handheld or when using a monopod, even if you're panning. Track subjects easier when shooting in Continuous mode and as an added benefit with the D4S, the continuous shooting frame rates and release lag time are not affected while using VR. Even use SPORT VR when shooting HD video. The Tripod VR function even eliminates the vibrations that may transfer from the ground to the tripod in both Normal and SPORT VR modes.
