Nikon AF-S Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens

Powerful zoom with extended reach. With a 200–500mm focal length range and constant f/5.6 aperture, this FX-format lens introduces a new level of super-telephoto versatility.  Whether you shoot wildlife, birds, planes, or fast-paced sports, this lens delivers unwavering performance.

The 200–500mm range offers exceptional reach. The constant f/5.6 aperture enables comfortable speed and smooth control over depth of field across the entire zoom range. Nikon’s impressive Vibration Reduction lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to 4.5 stops slower, and Sport VR mode excels at tracking fast action.

The electromagnetic diaphragm ensures precise exposures during high-speed bursts.
  • FX-format super-telephoto zoom lens: offers flexible 200–500mm focal length range (DX-format equivalent: 300–750mm). 
  • FX-format super-telephoto zoom lens: Ideal for shooting wildlife, birds, planes, and fast-paced sports.
  • Constant f/5.6 aperture: enables consistent speed and smooth control over depth of field across the entire zoom range.
  • High optical performance: three extra-low dispersion (ED) glass elements ensure minimal chromatic aberration.
  • Vibration Reduction (VR): minimises camera shake and lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to 4.5 stops slower.¹
  • SPORT VR: capture moving subjects such as birds in flight, or fast-paced sports with a stable viewfinder image when capturing high-speed movement.
  • High-speed AF operation: Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocus performance with seamless manual override.
  • Electromagnetic diaphragm: for consistent, more precise exposures during high-speed bursts.
  • Zoom-lock switch: keeps the lens secure when not in use and a tripod foot helps stabilise the lens when using a tripod.
  • AF with teleconverters (TC): the fixed maximum aperture of f/5.6 enables AF operation when using a 1.4x TC (attached to an f/8-compatible camera).
