Nikon AF-S 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR Lens

Nikon AF-S 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR Lens

The Nikon AF-S 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR is a fast, full frame telephoto zoom lens. The lens telephoto reach of 120-300mm and its fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 makes the lens ideal for shooting sports and wildlife.

The Nikon AF-S 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR lens features an intelligent optical image stabilisation system that provides up to 4-stops of vibration reduction; helping users achieve sharp results when shooting at slower shutterspeeds and/or at the end of the focal range.

Optics of the lens is nothing short of spectacular. The lens optics are constructed of 25 elements in 19 groups of which one is ED, two are fluorite, and one is a newly developed SR lens to greatly reduce chromatic aberration. In addition, adoption of Nikon's exclusive anti-reflection coatings, Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat, a first for NIKKOR F-mount lenses, ensures consistent and incredibly low reflection throughout the entire spectrum of visible light. These coatings effectively reduce the ghost and flare generated by incident light for sharp and clear images, even when a light source is included in the frame.

Please note that the lensfoot/tripod collar is not included

SR Lens Element

The SR lens element is made of a high- and specialized-dispersion glass that significantly refracts short-wavelength light, enabling rendering with which the great majority of chromatic aberration is suppressed

4 Stop Vibration Reduction (VR) with Sport mode

The Vibration Reduction (VR) system in the 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR reduces camera shake/movements to decrease blur. The VR system is rated at a 4 stop equivalent and enables users to shoot shutter speeds at up to 16 times slower than non-VR/IS lenses, and still get sharp and blur free images.

Sport mode limits vibration reduction to the minimum needed for subjects that are moving quickly and unpredictably. The viewfinder offers a more stable image when the camera is mounted on a monopod. Even when the camera is hand-held, the image in the viewfinder remains as stable and smooth as if the camera were on a monopod, making it easier to track the subject when the camera is panned during high-speed burst shooting. Frame rate and shutter response are unaffected

Other Features

  • A telephoto zoom lens compatible with the Nikon FX format that covers the 120 mm to 300 mm range of focal lengths with a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8
  • Optical performance that achieves extremely sharp and clear resolution, all the way to the extreme edges of the frame, throughout the zoom range
  • Adoption of one ED, two fluorite, and one newly developed SR lens element effectively controls chromatic aberration
  • The use of Nikon's exclusive anti-reflection coatings, ARNEO Coat and Nano Crystal Coat, effectively reduces ghost and flare
  • Superior AF performance through the use of AF detection results for more accurate subject tracking and nimble response to subjects whose speed of motion changes suddenly
  • A minimum focus distance of 2 m throughout the entire zoom range
  • Positioning of four focus function buttons that enables quick and certain focusing
  • Adoption of components made of a magnesium alloy achieves both strength and durability, and a lighter weight
  • Sealed throughout with consideration given to dust and drip resistance
  • Nikon's exclusive fluorine coat that effectively repels dust, water, grease, and dirt applied to the outer surface of the extreme front lens element
  • Adoption of highly durable bearings for the tripod collar for quick and smooth switching between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations
  • An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism that enables stable exposure control, even with high-speed continuous shooting
