Conquer distance. Nail action.

With a 200–500mm focal-length range and constant f/5.6 aperture, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens delivers incredible flexibility. Benefit from unwavering performance whether you shoot wildlife, birds, planes, or fast-paced sports.

Extend your reach with just one lens

Sports. Nature. Travel. From big vistas to the big game, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens captures superb stills and movies. The 200–500mm focal-length range (DX-format equivalent: 300–750mm) offers exceptional reach—perfect for capturing elusive birds and mammals in crisp detail. The constant f/5.6 aperture enables comfortable speed and smooth control over the depth of field across the entire zoom range. And when your subject is close, a minimum focus distance of just 2.2 m ensures rich detail.

Advanced Vibration Reduction (VR) and SPORT VR

Shoot handheld without worrying about the effects of camera shake. Reliably track fast-moving subjects with SPORT VR—even when they’re moving erratically. Nikon’s impressive Vibration Reduction system dramatically reduces blur—especially when shooting towards the super-telephoto end of the zoom range. You can shoot at shutter speeds up to 4.5 stops slower, great for capturing dramatic shots during the ‘golden hour’.¹ And SPORT VR mode let you track the action with incredible clarity. This mode delivers a stable viewfinder image, which is helpful when shooting exceptionally fast action, or when panning.

Exceptional optical performance

Expect clear, high-resolution images even when shooting at super-telephoto distances with the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens. Benefit from edge-to-edge sharpness with minimal distortion. Performance is superb thanks to an optical construction featuring three extra-low-dispersion (ED) glass elements. ED glass counters chromatic aberration for images with vivid colour and perfectly rendered contrast all the way to the edge of the frame.

Speed and precision

Built to partner with Nikon’s fast DSLRs, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens responds swiftly and precisely. An electromagnetic diaphragm ensures precise exposures at high frame rates. Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor offers fast autofocusing with seamless manual override. The fixed maximum aperture of f/5.6 enables AF operation even when using a 1.4x teleconverter (attached to an f/8-compatible camera). The electromagnetic diaphragm operates in sync with the fastest shutter speeds and frame rates, even when using an optional teleconverter.

Good to Go

Portable and manageable when locked, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens makes travelling with a long lens a little easier.
Travel easily with a long lens that packs up small. The zoom-lock switch keeps the lens secure when not in use. The tripod foot helps to keep the lens stable when using a tripod. And a detachable hood and soft case ensure the lens remains free from scratches, dust, dirt, and the effects of the elements.
