Lighter and stronger than ever
Employing the latest in NIKKOR technology, the AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR is crafted with two fluorite lens elements combined with magnesium alloy in the lens barrel, allowing for superior durability and significant weight reduction resulting in the world’s lightest*1 500mm*2 f/4 super-telephoto lens at approximately 3090g.

A Nano Crystal Coat, which features nano-sized crystal particles that effectively reduces flares and ghosting, works in tandem with two fluorite lens elements and Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements. These refined optics are designed to improve lens light flow and minimise chromatic aberration for impeccable sharpness and enhanced colour correction, all of which saves you time and effort by reducing the hassle of unnecessary post-processing corrections.
Faster and sharper than ever
The AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR boasts a Vibration Reduction (VR) system that delivers an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops*3 faster in NORMAL mode. In SPORT mode, the VR system is ideal for capturing high-speed subjects, which provides improved viewfinder stability and enhanced blur-reduction capabilities, ensuring sharper, faster and more precise telephoto images in any situation.
Eyes on the prize
Never lose track of your subject, even during high-speed continuous shooting, with remarkable autofocus (AF) tracking and stable auto-exposure (AE) control through the adoption of an electromagnetic aperture mechanism. This mechanism comprises of an aperture blade unit with drive mechanism that is controlled via electric signals from the camera body, allowing for improved long-distance accuracy during high-speed continuous shooting of fast and erratic moving subjects.
Always on the go
Engineered with the harshest of shooting environments in mind, a fluorine coat that effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt for easy cleaning is applied to the lens front. Experience improved durability with the inclusion of a tripod collar ring with bearings, that also facilitates faster and smoother switching between horizontal and vertical orientations, ensuring ease of use and improved opportunities for framing and composition.
SPORT Vibration Reduction
For pros shooting fast and erratic moving sports subjects, using the SPORT VR mode will give you a more stable viewfinder image, handheld or when using a monopod, even if you’re panning. Track subjects easier when shooting in Continuous mode and as an added benefit with the D4S, the continuous shooting frame rates and release lag time are not affected while using VR. Even use SPORT VR when shooting HD video. The Tripod VR function even eliminates the vibrations that may transfer from the ground to the tripod in both Normal and SPORT VR modes.
