An ideal set for wildlife photographers, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens Wildlife Kit by B&H packages a telephoto zoom lens with a sturdy tripod and gimbal head for stability when shooting.

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

Spanning a long, versatile zoom range, the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR Lens from Nikon is a telephoto zoom characterized by a constant f/5.6 maximum aperture for consistent performance throughout the zoom range. The optical design incorporates three extra-low dispersion glass elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and distortions for increased sharpness and color accuracy. Also contributing to improved image quality, a Super Integrated Coating has been applied to lens elements to lessen flare and ghosting for improved contrast and clarity.

A Silent Wave Motor AF system produces fast, near-silent focusing performance that suits both stills shooting and movie recording, which can instantly be manually overridden by simply turning the manual focus ring. Further contributing to photographing in fast-paced situations and difficult lighting, VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake by up to 4.5 shutter speed stops. Additionally, an electromagnetic aperture mechanism is integrated into the lens design to provide greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with faster continuous shooting rates.

Designed for use with FX image sensors, this lens is also compatible with DX sensors where it will provide a 300-750mm equivalent focal length range.
Constant f/5.6 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range.
Three extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy.
A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
Vibration Reduction image stabilization helps to reduce the appearance of camera shake for up to 4.5 shutter speed stops, benefiting this lens' use in low-light conditions. Additionally, a designated Sport Mode is well-suited to working in fast-paced conditions where panning and other lateral camera movements are more common.
A rotating tripod collar offers well-balanced support for photographing atop a tripod or monopod with either vertical or horizontal shooting orientations.
Specialized electromagnetic aperture mechanism provides greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with fast continuous shooting rates.

The following cameras are compatible with this lens: D5, D4 series, D3 series, Df, D850, D810, D810A, D800 series, D750, D700, D610, D600, D500, D300 series, D7500, D7200, D7100, D7000, D5600, D5500, D5300, D5200, D5100, D5000, D3400, D3300, D3200, D3100, Nikon 1 J1, J2, J3, J4, Nikon 1 V1, V2, V3 with FT-1, Nikon 1 S1, S2 with FT-1.

Benro TMA47AXL Extra Long Series 4 Mach3 Aluminum Tripod

Support up to 44.1 lb worth of gear with the TMA47AXL Extra Long Series 4 Mach3 Aluminum Tripod from Benro. Made from aluminum, the 3-section legs are secured via twist locks and extend to a maximum height of 85.1". The center column can be replaced with the included short column to allow the tripod to reach a minimum height of 18.7". The rubber feet can be swapped out for metal spikes so that the tripod can be used on hard surfaces, such as ice, or soft surfaces, like carpeting or a lawn. A ballast hook on the center column allows for the addition of stabilizing weight, and the included carrying case protects the tripod during transport. A 3/8"-16 threaded stud on the mounting platform lets you attach a head of your choice.

Oben GH-30 Gimbal Head

Featuring durable yet lightweight aluminum construction, the GH-30 Gimbal Head from Oben is designed to balance a lens and camera along its vertical and horizontal axes. Ideal for shooting moving subjects such as birds, wildlife, and athletic events, the gimbal head ensures you can use your telephoto or zoom lens to quickly aim and shoot your subject. The unit's built-in fluid motion assures smooth and uniform panning. Unwieldy lenses that are normally too large or heavy to be moved and aimed quickly can be tilted or swiveled effortlessly, and large, easy-to-grip locking knobs and an Arca-type quick release plate allow for swift and secure lens mounting. The GH-30 mounts onto most tripods with a 3/8"-16 threaded stud, and the strong and durable curved main arm supports and balances loads up to 44 lb, so even a large lens feels weightless.

Supports up to 44 Pounds
Designed to balance a camera and lens setup of up to 44 lb, the GH-30 gives you the ability to effortlessly maneuver a heavy camera and lens that would normally be too large or cumbersome to move and aim quickly.
Smooth and Fluid Motion
The fluid motion built into the arm of the gimbal lets you effortlessly move your camera while tracking moving subjects such as birds, wildlife, athletes, and airplanes, and with the GH-30 you get smooth and fluid motion when moving the lens along either axis.
Balance and Stability
Adjustable features allow you to quickly balance your gear while providing rigid support and stability. For sports and wildlife photography, the gimbal head provides the stability to balance and hold your camera and lens in place while you get your shot.
Tripod Compatible
Compatible with most tripods that have a 3/8"-16 threaded stud.
Arca-Type Compatible
An Arca-type quick release plate allows you to quickly mount your camera and lens to the gimbal head, and the included plate is designed with security pins to prevent it from accidentally slipping off the mounting platform.
Attaches to Most Lens Collars
Two 1/4"-20 threaded mounting screws and included 1/4"-20 to 3/8"-16 bushings assure compatibility with most lens collars.
Numbered Scales
Numbered scales provide a convenient way to mark the position of your setup so you can quickly rebalance your lens the next time you use it.
Easy to Grip
Easy-to-grip locking knobs securely lock the panning joint, swinging arm, platform adjustment, and quick release plate locks.
Compatible Lenses
Compatible with lenses such as 70-200mm f/2.8 or f/4, 100-400mm, 150-600mm, 300mm f/4, 400mm f/5.6, 200-500mm, and other similar-sized lenses.
