The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4.0G ED VR is a powerful, lightweight super telephoto, ideal for nature and sports features Nikon's VR II image stabilization and Nikon Nano Crystal Coat for exceptional performance.


  • Lightweight, convenient, Super Telephoto lens optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness on both the Nikon FX (23.9 x 36mm) and DX-format image sensors
  • Vibration Reduction (VR II) minimizes the effects of camera shake allowing photographers to shoot at as many as four shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper images
  • New Tripod Detection mode reduces vibration that may occur due to shutter release when mounted on a tripod
  • Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra high-speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and powerful, super-quiet operation
  • Exclusive Nano Crystal Coat and a meniscus protective glass element combine to further reduce ghosting and flare for even greater image clarity
  • Three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements control chromatic aberrations while enhancing color, sharpness and contrast, even at the widest aperture settings
  • Rugged, reliable, lightweight construction features a magnesium die-cast barrel and professional-grade dust and moisture resistance
  • New A/M focus mode provides secure switching between Auto and Manual focus operation
