Unrivalled Reach and Quality
The Nikon AF-S 500mm f/5.6 super telephoto lens is a lightweight marvel, offering a massive reach and excellent image quality. It boasts a range of stabilisation modes, a focal limiter and a silent mode to provide shooting versatility. The optical design of the lens uses a phase fresnel element to correct aberrations and ghosting without requiring additional elements, making it more compact and portable.
Compact and Portable Design
Compared to similar super telephoto lenses, the Nikon 500mm f/5.6E is surprisingly portable and compact. With a lightweight construction the lens provides greater flexibility and shooting freedom allowing you to produce stunning high-resolution images in a variety of shooting situations.
Vibration Reduction with Sports Mode
With a selection of VR modes, the lens provides the ability for you to select the most appropriate stabilisation system for the shot. Sports mode delivers improved viewfinder stability along with enhanced blur reduction making it perfect for far away high-speed subjects.
Driving the autofocus is Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM) which offers ultra-quiet focusing that’s great for keeping disturbances under control. It’s also extremely fast and accurate, while still offering manual override at the flick of a switch for fine tuning your focus.
Comprehensive Shooting Control
In addition to the standard manual and autofocus control, focal range limiter and VR mode switches the lens includes a memory recall switch as well as a button to switch the silent mode on and off.
Phase Fresnel Elements
The PF in the Nikon AF-S 500mm f/5.6E model name represents that the lens uses a “Phase Fresnel” optical element to effectively corrects chromatic aberrations and ghosting without the need for additional elements. This allows the lens to have a less complicated optical construction and in turn a significantly lighter construction.
Durable Weather Sealed Design
Complementing the compact design of the AF-S Nikkor 500mm f5.6 lens is extensive weather sealing to protect it against moisture and dust. The front element also features Nikon’s Fluorine Coating (FLC) which helps repel water and dust for easy cleaning no matter where you are.
