Shoot fast-moving subjects at different distances with smooth and consistent results. With the all-new stepping motor in the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR, you can achieve fast and precise autofocus (AF) through improved phase-detection and contrast-detection AF speeds. At the same time, AF drive sound has been reduced, enabling photographers and videographers to capture subjects in their most natural moments without drawing unnecessary attention.


With a practical zoom range of 70-300mm*1, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR is versatile enough to cover landscapes, portraits and more, while its telephoto capability achieves dramatic close-ups by bringing the subject closer to you. In addition, the Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element within its construction effectively minimises chromatic aberrations such as colour fringes for stunning images.


Take steadier shots with the Vibration Reduction (VR) feature on the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR. Compensating for slow, wide panning movements, the VR feature provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster*2 so that you can achieve crisp and sharp images even for handheld shots.


An all-new setting system*3 enables you to use the camera menus to change lens settings, freeing you to stay focused on composition and framing. The focus mode (AF/MF) can be selected using the camera’s menu. This eliminates accidental setting change caused by unintentional switch operation to give you a seamless, precise shooting experience.


A small, compact and lightweight body makes it the handy choice for travel, a day out with the family, on a safari, and everything else in between. Experience a world of portability, no matter where your passion leads. At just 72 × 125 mm and weighing approximately 415g, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR is the perfect companion for your adventures.
