Nikon 300mm f/2.8 overview

  • 1Description

This kit is presented by B&H as the ideal solution for the outdoor enthusiast buying a new Nikon Telephoto AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens. In addition to the lens, this kit includes 2 dedicated LensCoat Lens Covers in the Realtree Max4 HD camouflage pattern. This pattern offers maximum effectiveness in open terrain. It covers the lens with a 100% closed-cell neoprene coat, also offering protection from bumps, jars and nicks. One of the covers is designed to fully protect the lens when not in use. It simply slides over the lens, and closes with a secure touch-tab fastener. This cover is designed for use with the lens hood in the reverse position. The other cover is used to protect the lens when in use. Also included is the Hoodie (in same color), which is a neoprene hood cover that fits easily and snugly around your lens hood in either the shooting position or reversed.

 

The super-quiet Nikon 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II telephoto lens features Nikon's Silent Wave Motor technology that combines fast and precise autofocusing operation with super-quiet operation. The Vibration Reduction (VR II) technology helps compensate for camera shake to help ensure sharper pictures in low light and at shutter speeds up to four stops slower.

  • Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens

    The AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens from Nikon delivers superior professional performance with rugged construction and sharp imaging. A telephoto prime lens compatible with both FX and DX format DSLRs, this fast aperture lens is perfect for sports photojournalism, wild life photography, portraiture, and a wide range of subjects that require super telephoto focal lengths. The f/2.8 maximum aperture is effective for low light shooting and shallow depth of field control. On FX format sensors, it provides a 450mm focal length equivalency.

    Nikon's VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization allows handheld shooting at up to 3 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, and Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) provides users with fast and quiet autofocusing. A/M mode joins the familiar M/A and M modes, enhancing AF control versatility with fast, secure switching between auto and manual focus and AF Memory Recall allows instant return to a predetermined point of focus. The minimum focus distance is 7.2' in manual mode and 7.5' in AF mode.

    Three extra-low dispersion (ED) lens elements offer superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at wide apertures and both Nano Crystal Coating and Super Integrated Coating on the lens elements enhance light transmission and minimize flare and ghosting.

    Physically, this lens is up to the challenge of professional use with dust and moisture resistance, a magnesium die-cast barrel, and a protective meniscus front lens. A removable tripod collar and a 52mm slip-in filter system are supported.
