Nikon Announces AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II Lens

Despite its monster size, the new AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II is comparatively compact for its class, according to Nikon, weighing in at 2.98kg (aww!) and measuring 124 x 267.5mm (double aww!). It is priced at $5900 (make that triple aww!).

The new lens features the new generation of Vibration Reduction technology (VR II) and a new A/M focus mode, making it an ideal choice for sports, action and wildlife photographers. This lens is designed for those who are serious about photography, and have large muscles and deep pockets at the same time.

Nikon said the new VRII system offers four or more stops of compensation, and “makes this a really practical solution for the news and wildlife photographer”.
