Tokyo – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the introduction of three new AF-S super-telephoto NIKKOR lenses — the AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8G ED VR, AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4G ED VR, and AF-S NIKKOR 600mm f/4G ED VR — to further strengthen its super-telephoto lens lineup.

These new super-telephoto lenses are equipped with a vibration reduction (VR) function. Nikon’s VR II system minimizes image blur caused by camera shake, offering a shutter speed up to the equivalent of four stops faster.* The newly added Tripod mode reduces vibration that may occur at shutter release when shooting with a super-telephoto lens attached to a tripod. Another big advantage of Nikon’s VR function is that it gives photographers the option of a natural viewfinder image even during VR operation.
