Nikon 70-300mm Mirrorless Features

  • A super-telephoto zoom lens covering the 70-300mm range of focal lengths (anglesof view equivalent to 189-810mm in 35mm [135] format). This allows users to fillthe frame with faraway action or give images a busy, compressed look. It also enables shallow depth-of-field that makes subjects stand out from backgrounds.
  • Adoption of a retractable barrel mechanism makes the lens the world's smallest and lightest*1 in its class. This makes the lens highly portable and easy to handle despite being a super-telephoto zoom lens.
  • The lens is equipped with a vibration reduction (VR) mechanism that effectively reduces the effects of camera shake equivalent to a 4.0-stop increase in shutterspeed at the maximum telephoto position and 4.5 stops*2 at the maximum wide-angle position.
  • It is the first 1 NIKKOR lens equipped with a focus limit switch, which enables high-speed AF and decreases the amount of time required to focus on distant subjects by restricting focus distance to greater distances.
  • It is the first 1 NIKKOR lens for which Super ED glass, which markedly reduces axial chromatic aberration, has been adopted.
  • Nano Crystal Coat, which effectively reduces ghost and flare, has also been adopted.
  • It is equipped with M/A (autofocus with manual override) mode, which enables manual focusing by rotating the focus ring for intuitive fine adjustment of focus while autofocus is operating. This enables smooth recording of movies.
  • Utilization of Nikon's exclusive linear voice coil motor (VCM) for autofocus drive enables very fast and precise autofocusing and smoother acquisition of theintended subject with phase-detection AF built into Nikon 1 cameras.
  • Shooting similar to that of basic telephoto macro photography is made possible with a maximum reproduction ratio of approximately 0.41x (equivalent in 35mm format).
  • Just as with all 1 NIKKOR lenses, the 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 is designedto be quiet. When used with the quiet electronic shutter built into Nikon 1 cameras, operation is nearly silent.

Reviewed by 3 customers


Nice lens


Haven't had much oportunity to use yet. But, what I've seen is good so far. Makes for great reach in a small package. Good for birds.


Why I've Gone Mirrorless...


A photo enthusiast. Wanted the zoom sans the weight. Shoot with a Nikon1 v2, and this lens is a workhorse. Fast focus, lightweight, tack sharp pics when handheld. Worth the initial expense for the lens. See samples.

Amazing Long Lens


I have just obtained this lens and tested it at the San Diego Zoo. The lens is very well constructed and the images are amazingly sharp when hand held at 300mm (810mm equivalent), a testament to Nikon's vibration reduction (VR) technology and superior optics. My only criticism is the high price of the lens. However, when you see the results from this lens, the price is worth it (See attached images,).

Shopper  is this lenses good for sports photography?
ERIC L  This lens focuses fairly quickly in good light and should be good for daylight sports. I use mine with a Nikon 1 V2 for birds in flight with good success on sunny days.
