Nikon AF-S 500mm f/4G ED VR

This new AF-S super-telephoto Nikon lens is equipped with the VR II system, which minimizes image blur caused by camera shake, offering a shutter speed up to the equivalent of four stops faster.*

The newly added Tripod mode reduces vibration that may occur at shutter release when shooting with a super-telephoto lens attached to a tripod. The new optical design features three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements that minimize chromatic aberration, producing consistently high-quality images.

The new A/M focus mode allows instant switching from auto focus to manual focus, even during AF servo operation, and offers a major improvement over conventional M/A modes by significantly reducing the possibility of unintentional switching from Auto to Manual.

With their unprecedented image quality, responsiveness and versatility, these new Nikon s are certain to set a new benchmark for super-telephoto lenses.
