Another Nikon lens review today? So it is! Nikon has done a major renovation on its standard lenses this year and the super telephoto lenses have not been left behind with the Nikkor 200-500mm f / 5.6E ED VR. We will review its features, but before this, do you remember what a telephoto lens is? If you know, you can imagine what the function of a super telephoto lens is and you can skip the following explanation.
The general functions of a super telephoto lens and the Nikkor 200-500mm f / 5.6E
A telephoto lens is perfect for taking photos of elements that are far from the photographer. Thanks to its aperture and depth of field, telephoto lenses simulate a blurred background to give a better focal point to a central element.Now, why the Nikkor 200-500mm f / 5.6 is such a valuable release? Apart from being highlighted from the two standard Nikkor releases this year, the 24mm and the 24mm-70mm, it has a high focal length which allows you to shoot elements that are much more distant than usual. That is why more than a telephoto lens, it is a super telephoto lens.
Aperture. This lens has a maximum aperture of f / 5.6 to maintain a constant lighting throughout the zoom range.
Aperture system. A specialized electromagnetic mechanism provides the lens with stabilized exposure, which is ultimately adequate in most situations, even benefiting from bursts of rapid and continuous shooting.
Optical design. The Nikkor 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR has an internal mechanism that incorporates three ED (Extra-low dispersion) elements to reduce chromatic aberration, and other distortions. It also creates a more accurate and clear image, so sharpness or color will not be a problem.
From 300 to 750mm. Its Full-Frame sensors it includes at least this variable focal length. Distance will not be a problem with the Nikkor 200-500mm f / 5.6E.
Vibration reduction. Its image optimization system thanks to VR (Vibration Reduction) compensates for image quality due to its ability to reduce lens jerking.
Super Integrated Coating. The Super Integrated Coating system allows the Nikkor 200-500mm f / 5.6E to negate the effects of ghosting and lens-flare.
Sport mode. This lens has a built-in “Sport mode” that allows panning and lateral movements without jerking or unwanted movements in the image. It is perfect for when you need to work fast.
Compatibility. It is compatible with FX and DX sensors. However, the Nikkor 200-500mm f / 5.6E has the following incompatibilities:
