AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED
 

Nikon has today introduced the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR (Vibration Reduction) and the AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED.

Each lens features an extra-low dispersion (ED) glass element and Nikon's new AF-P Stepping Motor, which improves autofocus. For those who shoot video, the motor allows you to smoothly shift focus from subject to subject with minimal drive noise, so footage isn’t ruined by the sound of the lens focusing.

There are no switches on the lens barrels, which means there's no chance of accidentally changing settings. Instead, users switch between Auto Focus and Manual Focus using the camera menu*.

The new lenses are compatible with the D3000 series cameras from the D3300 onwards, D5000 series cameras from the D5200 onwards, D7000 series cameras from the D7100 onwards and the D500 is also compatible**. 

Both lenses will be available from 15 September 2016 with the following RRPs: 

  • AF-P DX NIKKOR 70–300mm f/4.5–6.3G ED: £299.99
  • AF-P DX NIKKOR 70–300mm f/4.5–6.3G ED VR: £349.99

Nikon has all announced the availability of  the new D3400 DSLR today.

Nikon spin doctors rule! Another interpretation would be 'we've removed a useful facility'.

I agree - who wants to fart around in menus just to change between AF & MF. Sometimes I wonder whether Nikon's management team live in the real world.
