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

This lens also features improved optical designs, using Nikon's performance-proven Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass, Nano-Crystal anti-reflective coating, Meniscus front element, Internal Focus, and focus preset functions. Distance Signal technology provides focused-distance information.

Designed to deliver professional quality sports and action photography.


Vibration Reduction

Vibration Reduction (VR) minimizes image blur caused by camera shake (cancelable). Two available VR modes :

  • Normal mode covers for regular hand shake with support for panning as well as tracking shots. For example, when panning (horizontally) while tracking a moving subject, vibration reduction suppresses only vertical handshake. 
  • Active mode is available to suppress vibration when shooting while on a moving vehicle.
