The AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 200-400mm f/4G IF ED Lens offers a significant advancement for professional telephoto photography, and is fully compatible with both 35mm and Digital SLR cameras.
The lens features an innovative Vibration Reduction (VR) system that allows handheld telephoto zoom shooting even in poorly lit conditions. The VR system minimizes image blur caused by camera shake, and offers the equivalent of shooting at a shutter speed 3 stops (8 times) faster. The lens offers a natural viewfinder image even during VR operation and also detects automatically when the photographer pans.
In addition, the Silent Wave Motor (SWM) feature provides swift autofocus with superior accuracy and ultra-quiet operation. And the lens can be switched quickly from AF to manual focus. Four buttons in front of the lens' focus ring let the photographer easily select from the [AF-L], [MEMORY RECALL], and [AF-ON] functions. The Focus Preset function allows a distance to be set to which the focus mechanism will instantly and automatically return to.
The ideal zoom-telephoto lens for the discerning professional telephoto photographer.
NOTE: VR function is only compatible with Nikon's F5, F100, N80, N65, D70, D100 & D1-series (or later) cameras. AF-S lenses, while able to manually focus with all Nikon F-mount cameras, will autofocus ONLY with the following cameras- N65, N70/F70, N80/F80, N90s/F90x, F4, F4s, F5, F100, D100, D1 & D1x (or any newer models). "G" type lenses are not fully compatible with the F4, N90-series, N70, N8008-series and N6006 (or older model) cameras, only programmed auto or shutter-priority auto exposure mode can be used.
Vibration Reduction (VR) minimizes image blur caused by camera shake (cancelable). Two available VR modes :
Normal mode covers for regular hand shake with support for panning as well as tracking shots. For example, when panning (horizontally) while tracking a moving subject, vibration reduction suppresses only vertical hand shake.
Active mode is available to suppress vibration when shooting while on a moving vehicle.
This lens is a combination of four fixed focal length super-telephoto lenses into a single compact super-telephoto AF Zoom Nikkor lens.
New optical design incorporates four ED glass elements for superior optical performance throughout the entire zoom range
Built-in A/M switch enables instant switching from autofocus to manual focus (Lock mechanism provided)
