Designed for fast-action photography, the Nikon 120-300mm AF-S NIKKOR f/2.8E FL ED SR VR lens captures the perfect shot in any scenario. A versatile zoom range, lightning-fast autofocus and a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 delivers bright, detailed shots with vivid, accurate color. An impressive collection of elements minimizes tonal distortions and an extensive system of coatings help prevent unwanted effects caused by incidental light or other environmental issues. As part of the VR system, a designated SPORT mode supports stable shooting, and a newly enhanced AF servo drive provides incredibly precise subject tracking. Designed for use even in harsh conditions, the weather-sealed construction of the Nikon 120-300mm AF-S NIKKOR f/2.8E FL ED SR VR stands up to even the most challenging of shooting situations.
One Extra-low Dispersion (ED) element and two Fluorite Lens (FL) elements in the Nikon 120-300mm AF-S NIKKOR f/2.8E FL ED SR VR lens work together to help minimize chromatic aberrations and color fringing. A Short-wavelength Refractive (SR) element controls blue light, further increasing color accuracy. Nikon’s Super Integrating Coating on lens elements features a Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat to help eliminate incidental light that can cause unwanted ghosting, reflections and flare, as well as Fluorine Coat, Nikon’s proprietary dust, dirt and moisture repellant.
Steady as a rock
Built-in optical Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization in the Nikon 120-300mm AF-S NIKKOR f/2.8E FL ED SR VR lens is effective at four stops, ensuring extraordinarily sharp imagery when shooting handheld. A designated SPORT mode supports shooting in fast-paced conditions, and an additional mode designed specifically for use with a tripod, as well as a rotating tripod collar, helps minimize any subtle ground vibrations. An electromagnetic diaphragm helps maintain consistent exposure stability when shooting at continuous fast speeds.
Unreal AF performance
The Silent Wave Motor (SWM) in the Nikon 120-300mm AF-S NIKKOR f/2.8E FL ED SR VR lens is designed to provide quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override. The powerful, newly enhanced AF servo drive in this lens provides incredibly precise subject tracking, even for fast action at a distance, resulting in accurate, detailed shots.
Ready for anything
The dust- and moisture-resistant magnesium alloy lens barrel of the Nikon 120-300mm AF-S NIKKOR f/2.8E FL ED SR VR is fully weather sealed and designed to withstand harsh shooting conditions. The front lens surface features Nikon’s Fluorine Coat as well, to repel dust, dirt and moisture.
