Nikon has announced the new AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm F4.5-5.6E ED VR zoom lens. The lens has a focal length between 70 to 300 mm (105-450 mm when used on an SLR with DX-format sensor). The minimum focus distance is 1.2 meters while the maximum magnification is 0.25x.
From the construction point of view, 18 elements divided into 14 groups were employed. There are 9-blade diaphragm, one ED element (Extra-low Dispersion) and enhanced Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization, which claims 4.5 stops of stabilization.
It integrates a stepping motor for fast and quiet AF performance, making it Nikon’s first full-frame AF-P lens. The new lens is also equipped with Sport VR Modes for added stability when shooting from a non-stationary location.
