    NIKON LAUNCHES THE AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR

    TOKYO, March 5, 2013, Tuesday - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR, a 5× telephoto zoom lens compatible with the Nikon FX format that covers the 80-400mm range of focal lengths with one of the fastest AF systems in its class.


    The AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR has one of the fastest AF systems in its class, the lens covering a broad range of focal lengths, from 80mm to the super-telephoto 400mm. It is ideal for photographing a variety of subjects including wild birds and landscapes, sporting events, trains and airplanes. It is also constructed with a new optical design utilising four ED lens elements and one super ED lens element, the Nano Crystal Coat which effectively reduces ghost and flare; a Vibration Reduction (VR) function that enables compensation for camera shake equivalent to a 4-step increase in shutter speed (tested in accordance with CIPA guidelines at a focal length of 400 mm); and a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) that enables quiet autofocusing. It uses Nikon's latest exclusive optical design equipped with innovative technologies, including three focus modes—A/M (autofocus with manual override, AF priority), M/A (autofocus with manual override, manual priority) and M (manual) for superior rendering capability.


    AF-S NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Primary Features:
    - A 5× FX-format compatible telephoto zoom lens covering focal lengths of 80-400mm
    - Four ED lens elements and one super ED lens element adopted for advanced optical performance
    - Nano Crystal Coat adopted to effectively reduce ghost and flare
    - VR performance equivalent to a 4-step increase in shutter speed (tested in accordance with CIPA guidelines at a focal length of 400mm)
    - Equipped with an SWM for an AF system that is both quiet and one of the fastest in its class
    - Three focus modes: A/M, M/A, M
    - When used with a camera that supports autofocusing with lenses with a maximum aperture of f/8, AF is possible even when a 1.4× teleconverter is used.
