Lightweight and robust, the Nikon 500mm lens’s body was designed for protection against dust, water, and freezing temperatures.

Incredible Quality

An anti-reflective nano crystal coating virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections to effectively eliminate unwanted ghosting and flaring.

A new VR mechanism offers camera shake compensation equivalent of 4.01-stop image stabilization in with Normal or Sport mode.
