Description

Nikkor 500mm lens f/5.6E PF ED VR AF-S

The AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR is a high-performance, FX format, super-telephoto lens that supports a 500 mm focal length. Adoption of a Phase Fresnel (PF) lens element has significantly reduced the size and weight of the lens, making hand-held super-telephoto photography easy and enjoyable.

 Significantly smaller and lighter with the adoption of a Phase Fresnel (PF) lens element
• Designed with consideration to a dust and drip-resistant structure, and adoption of Nikon's fluorine coat that effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease, and dirt
• Cutting-edge optics with which one PF lens element and three ED glass elements have been adopted for extremely sharp and detailed rendering that is compatible with high pixel-count digital cameras
• Optical performance that is in no way sacrificed when the TC-14E III AF-S teleconverter is used
• Materials used in the new PF lens element effectively control PF (diffraction) flare
• The effective ghost and flare suppression achieved through the use of Nano Crystal Coat enables clear images
• AF speed increased by making lens elements in the focusing group lighter

Crisp clarity

Wildlife at sunset. Subjects under harsh streetlights. Benefit from edge-to-edge sharpness, and minimal light fall-off and flare, even when shooting wide open or in backlit situations.

High-speed autofocus

This lens responds swiftly and precisely when your subject moves. An electromagnetic diaphragm delivers precise exposures at high frame rates.

Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor enables ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocus performance. Advanced AF tracking keeps pace with fast-moving subjects—even when they’re moving erratically, at random speeds, or approaching the camera quickly. The electromagnetic diaphragm ensures fast automatic exposure control, and maximum accuracy. The two-position focus-limit switch (FULL and ∞–5 m) offers additional control over subject-acquisition speed.

Smooth focus control

A fox’s burrow. A bend in the racetrack. Easily fine-tune focusing—adapt to the moment with breathtaking precision.

Focus functions inherited from Nikon’s professional lenses offer superb control. A/M and M/A focus mode switches let you switch from autofocus to manual focus simply by turning the focus ring. The focus ring boasts a knurled covering that enables a firm grip. And the Memory Recall function lets you store a focus distance for repeated use. Perfect when you want to focus on a bird’s favourite hunting perch.
