High-performance telephoto lens:
Offers 300 mm focal length and f/4 maximum aperture. (450 mm focal length when used with a Nikon DX-format SLR.)
Phase Fresnel element:
This telephoto lens delivers great optical performance and boasts a remarkably compact build. Use of a phase Fresnel (PF) lens element noticeably reduces the weight, without degrading image quality.
Vibration Reduction (VR):
With SPORT mode. VR minimises the effects of camera shake and lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to 4.5 stops slower. SPORT VR mode delivers a stable viewfinder image when shooting high-speed movement, and allows a continuous shooting frame rate with reduced release time lag, similar to those that are possible when VR is turned off.
Advanced optical performance:
Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces ghost and flare, increasing the clarity and contrast of images. An ED (extra-low dispersion) glass element minimises chromatic aberration.
Enables consistent, more precise exposures, especially when shooting at high frame rates.
Actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality. The coating enhances durability and makes it easier to clean the glass without damaging the surface.
Minimum focus distance:
RT-1 tripod collar ring (optional accessory):
Enables the lens to be rotated freely for smooth transition between vertical and horizontal orientation.
