Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 120-300mm f2.8E FL ED SR VR

The AF-S NIKKOR 120–300mm f/2.8E excels with its extraordinary resolving power and AF performance.

This remarkable lens also marks the introduction of a much-anticipated focal length range. Now, pro photographers who want to shoot at 300 mm no longer need to be tied to a single focal length.

  • F-Mount Lens/FX Format

  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22

  • ED, SR, and Fluorite Elements

  • ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coatings

Speed, reach, and flexibility define the Nikon AF-S 120-300mm f/2.8E FL ED SR VR

An F-mount telephoto zoom characterized by an advanced optical design, quick focusing performance, and a bright f/2.8 constant maximum aperture. Fluorite, short-wavelength refractive (SR), and extra-low dispersion (ED) glass is used throughout the optical layout to effectively suppress a variety of aberrations for improved clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy throughout the zoom range. ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coats, as well as a Super Integrated Coating, have been applied, too, to suppress flare, ghosting, and surface reflections for improved contrast and colour fidelity.

Balancing the optical merits

This 120-300mm is also characterized by its inclusion of a Vibration Reduction image stabilization system that compensates for camera shake to enable sharper handheld shooting. A Silent Wave Motor also benefits producing sharp imagery and affords quick and quiet autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.

Additionally, a rotating tripod collar is featured to assist working with a support system and this lens utilizes an electromagnetic diaphragm to ensure consistent exposure stability when shooting at fast continuous speeds.

Designed for use with FX image sensors

This 120-300mm lens is also compatible with DX sensors where it will provide a 180-450mm equivalent focal length range.

Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture

Offers consistent illumination throughout the zoom range and benefits working in available lighting conditions as well as offers improved control over depth of field.

Featuring a combination of one extra-low dispersion element, two fluorite elements, and one short-wavelength refractive element, chromatic aberrations and colour fringing is effectively eliminated throughout the zoom range for notable clarity and colour accuracy.

Vibration Reduction image stabilization

Helps to reduce the appearance of camera shake, benefiting this lens' use in low-light conditions. Additionally, a designated Sport Mode is well-suited to working in fast-paced conditions and a Tripod Mode helps to suppress subtle ground vibrations when working atop a support system.

  • Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.

  • Focus range limiter allows you to constrict the focus system to a 19.7' to infinity range for faster focusing performance.

  • Assignable Function buttons can be used for lens-based activation of AF/AE Lock modes or for switching between different AF Area Modes.

  • Dust- and moisture-resistant lens barrel, along with a front fluorine coating, benefits the lens' use in inclement conditions.

  • Tripod collar offers well-balanced support when working from a monopod or tripod. The collar ring also incorporates ball bearings for smooth transitions between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations.

  • Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.

  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
