Nikon 70-300mm 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.
