Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) gives you a four-stop advantage, even with the teleconverter activated. SPORTS VR reliably tracks fast-moving subjects.
Shoot without worrying about the effects of the camera shake. VR technology activates the instant you press the shutter halfway and enables shooting speeds up to four stops slower than otherwise possible.* SPORT VR mode delivers a more stable viewfinder image, which is helpful when shooting exceptionally fast action, or when panning.
This lens responds swiftly and precisely to autofocus changes. An electromagnetic diaphragm ensures precise exposures at high frame rates.
Advanced AF tracking keeps pace with fast-moving subjects—even when they’re moving erratically, at random speeds, or approaching the camera quickly. Subject-acquisition performance is superb, even in the peripheral areas of the frame. The electromagnetic diaphragm ensures fast automatic exposure control and maximum accuracy.
When you’re working down to the wire or shooting long hours, Nikon’s renowned ergonomics can make all the difference.
Typical zoom- and focus-ring positions are reversed for more balanced handling. With the zoom ring positioned towards the front of the barrel, directly below your hand, it’s easier to maintain a steady posture when zooming. Both the zoom and focus rings boast a knurled covering that enables a firm grip for smooth control. The tripod collar ring includes bearings to ensure smooth switching between horizontal and vertical orientations. And the integrated tripod foot faces the front of the lens for optimum balance and more comfortable transportation when the lens is attached to a tripod.
