  • Astounding views, comfortably in reach.:
  • Wherever your passion lies, this outstanding super telephoto zoom lens can bring it into focus. Capture and share stunning views of birds, wildlife, motorsports, athletes, performers, landmarks and other faraway subjects. A fast f/5.6 constant aperture gives your shots beautifully out-of-focus backgrounds across the entire zoom range. Turn fast-moving action into dazzling photo sequences-the electromagnetic diaphragm operates in sync for the fastest subjects and shutter speeds while Vibration Reduction image stabilization keeps your shots sharp and steady. And in the rare cases when additional reach is needed, you can increase the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR's zoom power with an optional Nikon 1.4x, 1.7x or 2x teleconverter*.
  • (*Compatible with TC-14E series teleconverters (AF is only available when used with DSLR cameras that offer f/8 support. These include: D4, D4S, Df, D600, D610, D750, D800, D800E, D810, D7100, D7200). Compatible with TC-17E and TC-20E series teleconverters (AF not possible).)
  • Conquer distance: Lightweight, compact super telephoto zoom:
  • Whether your subject is far in the distance or close, fast or slow, you can land the shot. On FX-format cameras, 500mm brings distant birds, wildlife, athletes, performers, landmarks and more into tight focus. DX-format cameras add an additional 1.5x zoom effect for an angle of view equivalent to a whopping 750mm! And despite that extreme power, you can also focus on subjects as close as 7.2 feet away for detail rich close-ups.
  • Sharpen your vision: Approximately 4.5 stops of Vibration Reduction:
  • At super telephoto distances, the smallest camera movements can cause image blur. Vibration Reduction image stabilization counteracts camera shake up to approximately 4.5 stops for sharp photos and steady videos. You also can shoot at slower shutter speeds in low light - great for those magic moments at dawn and dusk. Sports Mode is optimized for camera pans and other movements common when shooting fast action.
  • Dazzling performance: Advanced Nikon lens technology:
  • Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass cuts through the glare of bright sunlight. Silent Wave Motor (SWM) powers ultra-fast, near-silent autofocusing with seamless manual override. The Electromagnetic diaphragm (E) operates in sync with the fastest shutter speeds and frame rates, even when using an optional teleconverter. Always bring home views that amaze.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon 200-500 VR 5.6 "I picked this lens up at the Thornhill store today as a pre-order. Have had a chance to play with it a bit and have found it to be incredible on my D800. It focuses quickly and extremely accurately with a great sharp image that belies it's incredible price. If you are a birder or wildlife shooter with an understanding of it's limitations(very few at that) you will absolutely love this lens. hope to spend more time with it this weekend and may look for a TC-1.4E extender for it. Highly recommend this lens to anyone on the fence about this lens and don't forget to shop at Henry's ! Thanks for looking and happy shooting."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Lens "Owning and shooting with the 300/2.8VR and 500/4VR, this lens is in comparison an amazing bargain. It is small, light, and easily handheld - for a fraction of the price of these other heavy telephotos. It is super sharp at 500mm even with a Nikon 2x TC on a tripod. The zoom is nice and tight so there is no lens creep. It is a great alternative for the times you don't want to carry your heavy fast glass."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Value? From Nikon? Wow! "It's big. It's heavy. It is slower focusing than 70-200 f2.8. It's a screaming bargain in a telephoto zoom. Great VR. Great build quality. When camera movement is controlled properly and you nail focus, this lens is very, very good. Maybe only very good from 450-500mm. Colour, contrast, isolation and detail are all very good. On a D810, sports like soccer or rugby and birds in flight require patience and good tracking/anticipation. It's worth the effort to be a bit more disciplined monopod, 2xFL shutterspeed and so on. This lens is a keeper."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! "Was considering the Sigma 150-600 contemporary or the Tamron 150-600 lens and was almost ready to make a purchase then Nikon announced this lens. I pre-ordered it and got it a couple of days after release. So far I have used it to take pictures of the moon and of birds handheld. I was amazed at the sharpness I got from the handheld shots. This is my first foray into ultra zoom lenses and I am amazed at the image quality of the handheld shots. The new VR system is amazing. The lens is big and heavy but I expected that. Great lens! Being an amateur/enthusiast, a similar focal range professional lens was beyond what I wanted to spend. The price hit the sweet spot. Very pleased with my purchase!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Low Cost Large Tele Zoom for wildlife "Thanks to Nikon, this lens was a gift to those of us who need at sharp 500mm Telephoto for wildlife and bird photography without the huge cost of a long prime. This lens wide open at 5.6 remains very sharp at all focal lengths from 200 to 500 and is light enough to carry deep in the woods to capture amazing images."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good lens Very good lens from Nikon. Affordable for wildlife photography. Optical quality is very-very good. VR is the best I've had on any Nikkor. Focusing speed is fine but not a race engine. All in all a home run from Nikon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile but not perfect "I bought and shot this lens for 2 weeks in Europe this December of 2015, going after airplanes, trains and birds. I left my 300 2.8 at home because it's slightly smaller in my carry-on and more versatile zoom-wise. Optically very good but not as sharp as my 300. The lens-hood hit the ground several times while I carried the lens because it doesn't attach very strongly and rubbed against my clothing. The collar doesn't feel very smooth or solid on my monopod. But the biggest surprise is how stiff the zoom ring is, and how far the travel is to go from 500 out to 200. I found myself having to put my zoom-hand on top of the lens to zoom out and its difficult to zoom out smoothly without re-adjusting my hand, interrupting the shooting flow. Much more travel needed than the 70-200 say. Most of what I shoot is heading towards me, so this is a moderate issue. Be prepared to think ahead for your optimum frame-size so you're not readjusting at the prime moment. But the versatility makes up for it, despite losing 2 stops over my 300. The VR is very good and the price-point can't be beat."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nikon 200-500 f5.6 is AMAZING "For the price point an absolutely amazing lens. Vr is the best yet. Easily hand-held at 500mm. Feels and works like a much more expensive lens."
