The 300mm focal length has always been popular with professionals and advanced amateurs due to the combination of magnification, portability and close-focusing. 300mm is about the longest lens that can be hand held (in daytime lighting situations). The Vivitar 300mm f/5.6 for Nikon AI mount manual focus lens is a nice compromise in size and speed. Featuring a built-in, telescoping lens hood, this lens is suitable for many outdoor applications.
This lens has a Prong that only will meter couple to the older Nikon 35mm manual focus SLR cameras such as the Nikon F,F2 and Nikkormat FTN.
