Powerful zoom with extended reach. With a 200-500mm focal length range and constant f/5.6 aperture, this FX-format lens introduces a new level of super-telephoto versatility.

Whether you shoot wildlife, birds, planes, or fast-paced sports, this lens delivers unwavering performance. The 200-500mm range offers exceptional reach. The constant f/5.6 aperture enables comfortable speed and smooth control over depth of field across the entire zoom range. Nikon's impressive Vibration Reduction lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to 4.5 stops slower, and SPORT VR mode excels at tracking fast action. The electromagnetic diaphragm ensures precise exposures during high-speed bursts.

Key features.

FX-format super-telephoto zoom lens: offers flexible 200-500mm focal length range (DX-format equivalent: 300-750mm). Ideal for shooting wildlife, birds, planes, and fast-paced sports.

Constant f/5.6 aperture: enables consistent speed and smooth control over depth of field across the entire zoom range.

High optical performance: three extra-low dispersion (ED) glass elements ensure minimal chromatic aberration.

Vibration Reduction (VR): minimises camera shake and lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to 4.5 stops slower.¹ SPORT VR mode delivers a stable viewfinder image when capturing high-speed movement. It also allows a continuous shooting frame rate and release time lag similar to those that are achievable when VR is turned off. Use SPORT VR mode to perfectly capture moving subjects such as birds in flight, or fast-paced sports.

High-speed AF operation: Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocus performance with seamless manual override.

Electromagnetic diaphragm: for consistent, more precise exposures during high-speed bursts.

Minimum focus distance: 2.2m.

Zoom-lock switch: keeps the lens secure when not in use.

Tripod foot: helps stabilise the lens when using a tripod.

AF with teleconverters: the fixed maximum aperture of f/5.6 enables AF operation even when using a 1.4x teleconverter (attached to an f/8-compatible camera).

Included: detachable hood and soft case.

¹ In Normal mode based on CIPA standard.

Reviews for NIKON AF-S NIKKOR 200-500MM F5.6E ED VR

William Shaw - 01/08/2016:

Sourced this from T4 a few months ago and have tried it out on birds, kids' sports days and the occasional moon shot. Have been delighted with the sharpness out to 500mm. I tend to use it on either a monopod and tripod - it's a heavy lens quite apart from the stabilisation a 'pod offers. Autofocus works well on a D750, though I have got much more reliable results with single point than area - I had a few out of focus kids against sharp backgrounds for a while. It offers enough sharpness that on a 24MP sensor post-shoot crops are so good I crossed the 1.4x tele-converter off my shopping list.
