The lens also features VR to assist you capture images and videos without camera shake. Equipped with a stepping motor for AF drive operation, the lens achieves smooth and near-silent autofocus and is perfect for taking photos of wildlife without disturbing them.

70-300mm Focal Length Range

With a powerful zoom range of 70-300mm, this lens is created for DX format cameras* and ensures that you are able to effortlessly capture close up shots of distant objects. Whether you are photographing wildlife or attending a concert, the powerful zoom will bring far away subjects into instant focus to deliver stunning photos. The angle of view is equivalent to 105-450 mm in 35mm format which allows you to focus on fine detail and control your composition by zooming in and out.

Revised Autofocus Motor

Featuring an updated stepping motor, the DX Nikkor lens brings distant objects into focus instantly with absolute precision, allowing you to shoot fast-moving objects at various distances with consistently great results. The sound created by the motor has been reduced to a near-silent level giving you the necessary stealth to get perfect wildlife shots without alerting subjects to your presence.

Steady Video and Photos

The revised Nikon 70-300mm lens has a vibration reduction system which reduces the effect of camera shake on your photos and videos. The VR system effectively compensates for up to 4 stops of shutter speed and delivers image stabilisation to reduce the blurring that can occur with hand-held shooting. Because the system allows for shots to be taken with much slower shutter speeds, it will also deliver better quality photos in darker conditions.

Maximum Aperture Range of f/4.5-6.3

The Nikon lens has a maximum aperture range of f/4.5-6.3 and a minimum of f/22-32 allowing you to control your depth of field so you can use your imagery more effectively to tell a story.

Extra-low Dispersion Glass

Fitted with an Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass element that reduces chromatic aberrations, prevents colour fringes and minimises all types of distortion, the lens has superb optics that will deliver rich, vibrant colours, deep contrast and clear images.

Advanced Coating

A multi-layer Super Integrated Coating (SIC) is used on the lens, meaning that you are able to create photos with reduced flare and ghosting ensuring exceptional performance.

Menu Based Setting System

With an updated setting system on the DX NIKKOR, lens settings can now be easily managed using the menu on the camera, preventing unintentional changes caused by accidental switch operation and delivering a smooth and precise experience.

7-bladed Circular Aperture

Equipped with a rounded 7 blade aperture diaphragm, the lens gives you the ability to create smooth and round out-of-focus elements for beautiful stunning images.
