Nikon 200-500mm | Camera Lens

This inexpensive Nikon 200-500 has excellent optics and superb vibration reduction (VR). It's the best buy in Nikon ultratelephotos ever. It's easy to read a "HIGH VOLTAGE" sticker on a power pole a mile away at 500mm handheld on a 36MP D810.

VR is rated at 4½ stops improvement, and in actual practice, I usually get perfect results hand-held at 1/15 at 500mm! You can leave your tripod at home with this ultra-tele.

This 200-500mm has no light falloff; shoot it wide-open and the corners don't go dark.

This new 200-500mm is Nikon's first reasonably priced ultratelephoto ever. Birders and other ultratele users are breaking out the Champagne! Unlike the overpriced 80-400mm VR ($2,700 for just about the same thing), this new lens is a complete winner.

It's made as well as the $2,700 80-400mm VR. What you loose for paying only half as much is that this 200-500 doesn't focus as close or as fast as the 80-400mm — but the 200-500 goes to 500mm at a generous f/5.6 and the rear half of its zoom ring is metal!

This lens is for long-distance use; it doesn't focus very close (7.2' or 2.2m minimum) and it is slow (only f/5.6 at every aperture) and it doesn't zoom wide (200mm minimum), and with these limitations allows it to be sold at a very low price. You can pay the same price for junk-brand lenses like the Tamron 150-600mm.

Even nicer is that Nikon throws in the tripod collar, which is an extra-cost option with the $2,000 300mm f/4 PF. The hood and case are also included, whoo hoo!

New is a SPORT VR mode, which claims to allow VR to work well while photographing things that move unpredictably.

Grab the focus ring at any time for instant manual focus override.
