The Nikon AF VR Zoom-NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED Lens is a high-powered zoom lens featuring an innovative Vibration Reduction (VR) system that allows handheld super-telephoto zoom shooting in poorly lit conditions. The VR system minimizes image blur caused by camera shake, and offers the equivalent of shooting at a shutter speed 3 stops (8 times) faster. The lens offers a natural viewfinder image even during VR operation and also detects automatically when the photographer pans. It is ideal for candid, portrait, sports photography and more. Nikon D-type lenses transmit subject-to-camera distance information to the camera. The camera uses this distance information to refine its exposure calculations.
Vibration Reduction (VR) minimizes image blur caused by camera shake (cancelable). Two VR modes available on this lens - 1) Vibration Reduction for both the viewfinder image and the image on film where Moderate VR operation is executed to ensure viewing comfort for the viewfinder image andÂ 2) VR for the image on the film only (conserves battery power).
The New optical design of the Nikon 6D ED f/4.5-5.6 80-400mm Lens incorporates three ED glass elements for superior optical performance throughout the entire zoom range. The built-in A/M switch enables instant switching from autofocus to manual focus (lock mechanism provided). A detachable tripod mounting foot is provided along with the Nikon 6D ED f/4.5-5.6 80-400mm Lens.
