AF-S NIKKOR 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR: Behind The Winning Shot
Performance at the highest level
Whether you’re shooting inside a sports venue or outdoors at night, the phenomenal resolving power of this lens enables incredibly sharp images. The optical design boasts 25 elements in 19 groups and includes Nikon’s new SR glass, which thoroughly counters chromatic aberration. ARNEO and Nano Crystal coatings combat ghosting and flare.
The constant f/2.8 aperture enables comfortable speed and smooth control over depth of field across the entire zoom range, giving you enough room to use 1.4x or 2.0x teleconverters without sacrificing AF performance.
NB: Teleconverters reduce the maximum aperture and may affect autofocus. For more information, there is a helpful article, HERE.
AF performance equivalent to a prime telephoto lens keeps pace with fast-moving subjects – even when they’re moving erratically. An electromagnetic diaphragm ensures precise exposures at high frame rates.
Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) gives you a four-stop advantage, even with a teleconverter activated. VR starts up the moment you power on the camera. SPORT VR mode reliably tracks fast-moving subjects.
The AF-S NIKKOR 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR is the first lens to utilise both Nikon’s ED and SR glass to combat chromatic aberration and coma. Harder-to-control blue light (short wavelength spectrum) is now compensated, giving sharper images and better contrast. Colour fringing is greatly reduced even when shooting at the widest maximum aperture.
Nikon’s renowned ergonomics give you every advantage to catch the shots that matter. Benefit from assignable function buttons, smooth switching between horizontal and vertical orientations, and more.
The removable, integrated tripod foot faces the front of the lens for optimum balance and more comfortable transportation when the lens is attached to a tripod.
This telephoto zoom lens is fully weather-sealed and ready to withstand the rigours of daily professional use. The fluorine coating repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality.
NB: Caution should still be taken in harsh conditions to prevent damage to the lens.
