If you are looking for a compact, versatile telephoto zoom lens that handles portraiture as well as it handles long-distance wildlife and action photography, look no further than the AF-S Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR. With the broadest focal length range in Nikon's super-telephoto zoom line-up, it reduces the number of lenses you need to carry into the field; and expands your handheld shooting capabilities, with Nikon's Vibration Reduction (VR) technology. Create spectacular photos and HD videos in nearly any light, from nearly any distance.
Remarkable versatility and performance Travel light. Shoot with confidence. At 80mm, its an ideal medium-telephoto portrait lens. Create stunning portraits with a medium telephoto perspective and softly blurred backgrounds. At 400mm, its a powerful super-telephoto lens suited to wildlife and action photography, with or without a tripod. For dazzling close-ups with macro detail, get as close as 5.7 feet from your subject and zoom into 400mm - you'll be amazed by the results!
Nikon's VR image stabilization with Tripod Auto Detect At super-telephoto focal lengths, even the slightest camera movement can cause image blur. Fortunately, the AF-S Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR features Nikon's second-generation Vibration Reduction technology to ensure every handheld photo and HD video is razor-sharp. It also lets you shoot at shutter speeds 4-times slower than otherwise possible, a major advantage in low-light situations where a slower shutter speed means brighter, richer images. The AF-S Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR even detects when you're using a tripod and automatically delivers specialized VR correction.
Nikon's innovations for consistently stunning images Nikon's innovations in optical design and lens technology have given way to a remarkable new class of Nikkor lenses. The AF-S Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR is among them. From its Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing to its Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements for maximum contrast and minimum lens flare and ghosting, you can expect a lifetime of consistently brilliant performance. The AF-S Nikkor 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR is equally at home on DX- or FX-format Nikon cameras.
ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and Super ED Glass ED Glass is an optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations. Super ED glass exhibits an even lower refractive index and lower light dispersion than ED glass while excelling at eliminating secondary spectrum and correcting chromatic aberration.
Vibration Reduction A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
Silent Wave Motor AF-S Nikkor lenses feature Nikons Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations rather than a gear system to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
IF Lens A Nikkor lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF Nikkors do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances.
Nano Crystal Coat An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.
Super Integrated Coating Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in Nikkor lenses.
A/M A/M stands for Auto-Priority Manual Mode. This mode also enables an easy transition from autofocus to manual during AF operation. However, mode switch sensitivity has been altered to reduce the possibility of sudden unintentional switching to manual focus while shooting.
M/A Select Nikkor lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
