Outstanding Image Quality in a Portable Telephoto Lens

The Nikon AF-S 300mm F/4E PF ED VR is one of the lightest 300mm autofocus lenses available. It features a Phase Fresnel element, ED glass and a nano-crystal coating to retain outstanding image sharpness and clarity while eliminating almost all chromatic aberrations and ghosting.

The AF-S 300mm is the perfect companion to the sport, travel or wildlife photographer who requires professional level optics in a long-reaching lens that is highly portable and can be handheld.

Telephoto Prime Lens with Beautiful Bokeh

The fixed focal length telephoto lens has a maximum aperture of f/4. With the compression of the 300mm focal length and the large aperture, this lens is capable of achieving expressive and beautiful out-of-focus characteristics. The 9-bladed aperture diaphragm ensures that bokeh remain circular and non-distracting throughout the aperture range.

Versatile Vibration Reduction Modes

The 300mm F4E features a vibration reduction mode that is capable of stabilising handshake equivalent to a 4.5-stop increase in shutter speed in normal VR mode. A Sports VR mode can also be activated which better caters for camera shake in situations where subject matter (such as sports players) move rapidly and unpredictably. Nikon’s VR system makes this lightweight telephoto lens perfect for hand-held shooting and scenarios where high mobility is required.

Nano Crystal and Fluorine Coatings

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 300 mm F/4E PF ED VR utilises a anti-reflective Nano Crystal Coat to reduce flare and maintain a superior optical performance. The front lens element features a highly durable fluorine coating which repels water, oils and other dirt, ensuring that the lens is easy to clean even in harsh conditions.
