Enhanced legendary f/2.8 300mm super-telephoto prime lens.
Nikon’s renowned 300mm f/2.8 professional super-telephoto lens is now reborn with second-generation Vibration Reduction (VR II) image stabilization and Nikon’s latest lens technologies for even greater performance. The AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II delivers exceptional professional results for sports photography, live performance shooting, wildlife and much more. If greater reach is needed, the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G is fully compatible with all Nikon tele-converters.
Outstanding reach and clarity
The AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II combines an ultra-fast f/2.8 maximum aperture, Vibration Reduction (VR II) image stabilization and professional telephoto performance optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness on both Nikon FX- and DX-format DSLRs. If action and sports photojournalism, live performance shooting or wildlife photography is your calling, no lens outperforms the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II. And if greater reach is needed, the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II is fully compatible with all Nikon tele-converters.
Legendary image quality
Boasting renowned NIKKOR optics, the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II also employs the latest Nikon technologies to help produce razor sharp images in challenging situations. Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization provides 3.0 stops* of blur free handheld shooting, assuring dramatically sharper still images and HD video capture. Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing with seamless manual override. Nano Crystal Coat (N) and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass virtually eliminate ghosting and lens flare and produce superior sharpness, contrast and colour. Enhanced dust and moisture-resistance, magnesium die-cast barrel construction and a protective meniscus front lens deliver the durability working photographers demand.
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.
Nano Crystal Coat
An anti-reflective coating developed by Nikon that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
A/M stands for Auto-Priority Manual Mode. This mode also enables an easy transition from autofocus to manual during AF operation. However, mode switch sensitivity has been altered to reduce the possibility of sudden unintentional switching to manual focus while shooting.
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
I originally bought the 200-500 but after two copies and not a single sharp image I bit the bullet and invested in this fine piece of glass. WOW this baby is sharp. I have even taken some images with the 1.4x TCII and the 2.0X TCIII and they are sharp as tacks too.
I have been using this lens for about three weeks. I purchased it with the intent of using it for multiple focal lengths, with Nikon 1.4 and 2.0 tele-converters. The quality with the 2.0 converter on my D500 is excellent.
This is a true high-class lens, and its versatility is amazing. It is so sharp, with such great bokeh, that you can crop butterfly images and they look better than if taken by a macro lens. You can also safely slap a 2x TC III on it, double your reach, and yet still get *outstanding*image quality.
Ive owned 2 previous 300 2.8s and was always pleased. During the past 2 years Ive used this lens on several cameras; D5, D500, D810 (no longer own) and D850. On all the focus is instant and smack on. Best lens Ive ever owned.
I can't say enough about this lens. I shoot professional bass tournaments, and when you're on a boat a tripod just isn't useable. So VR is essential to getting sharp handheld photos - and this lens fulfills that need in spades. It's rugged, fast and absolutely what I need to get the job done.
A high speed super-telephoto professional lens
