This versatile telephoto prime lens from Nikon offers photographers long reach and fast performance with a relatively light footprint. Although designed for FX cameras, it’s also compatible with DX models and provides a 450mm equivalent focal length. Perfect for wildlife, sports, travel, and any other photo application where you need a long view, it has a 300mm focal length that can be extended to 600mm when combined with teleconverters such as Nikon’s AF-S, TC-14, TC-17, and TC-20.
The f/4 aperture performs in reasonably low-light conditions, and nine rounded blades create beautiful bokeh to enhance your shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques. Autofocus is quick, accurate, and quiet thanks to Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor, which relies on ultrasonic technology rather than gears. Internal focusing further speeds up the process. If you’d prefer to pull your focus, full-time manual focus override is available.
This lens is constructed from 10 elements in six groups, including two extra-low dispersion elements, which take care of chromatic aberrations and color fringing. When you’re shooting in bright conditions, you won’t have to worry about ghosting and lens flare because of Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating.
The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4D IF-ED has an 8° 10-inch angle of view, a minimum focusing distance of 4.76 feet, offers maximum magnification of 0.27x, and accepts 77mm front filters.
