Nikon Announce 70-300mm ED VR Telephoto Lens: Nikon ED 70-300mm

Nikon has announced a new 70-300mm telephoto lens. The AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR has faster AF as well as Sport VR mode and a lighter, more weather-resistant build. It will be available for £749.99.

As an AF-P NIKKOR lens it boasts Nikon’s Stepping Motor, which brings subjects into focus extra quickly and extra quietly. Vibration Reduction (VR) is now faster, quieter, and more effective. And this lens also benefits from SPORT VR mode, inherited from Nikon’s pro lenses. A firm favourite with photographers who shoot action, SPORT VR mode enables photographers to reliably track fast-moving subjects—even when they’re moving erratically. Additional features from Nikon’s pro lenses include an electromagnetic diaphragm, which ensures precise exposures at high frame rates. And A/M and M/A focus-mode switches that make it possible to control manual-focus override simply by turning the focus ring. The preferred option of sports photographers, M/A mode allows switching with virtually no time lag. The A/M focus mode is less sensitive to prevent unintentional switching to manual mode.

Emma Fergie, Product Manager, Lenses & Accessories, Nikon UK says: “The new AF-P 70-300mm lens is an excellent addition to our NIKKOR lens line-up. Nikon is renowned for its ability to integrate proven pro technology into more affordable lenses, and this new telephoto zoom is testament to that. Exceptional features like the SPORT VR and advance vibration reduction (VR) mean that this is the ideal lens for photographers who often have to shoot in gruelling situations.”

 

Nikon AF-P Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR Key Features:

  • More flexibility: this 70–300mm telephoto zoom (105–450mm when used with a Nikon DX-format SLR) now boasts a minimum focus distance of 1.2 m throughout the zoom range and a 0.25x maximum reproduction ratio.
  • AF-P Stepping Motor: for ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocus. Enables video footage to be recorded with practically no drive noise.
  • Advanced Vibration Reduction (VR): enables shooting at shutter speeds up to 4.5 stops slower than otherwise possible.¹
  • SPORT VR mode: delivers a more stable viewfinder image, which is helpful when shooting exceptionally fast action, or when panning.
  • Weather-resistant build: every movable part of the lens barrel is sealed to protect from dust and water droplets.
  • Electromagnetic nine-blade diaphragm: delivers consistent automatic exposure control even during high-speed bursts. The rounded diaphragm blades enable natural-looking bokeh.  
  • Superior control: A/M and M/A focus-mode switches. Focus ring and the zoom ring boast a knurled covering that enables a firm grip.

If this is a noticeable improvement on its predecessor then it could be a good buy. My 70-300mm is getting long in the tooth now, and hopefully this could be for me. Smile

Waiting now for a more detailed tests, and hopefully head to head comparisons with the previous model. Smile
