Update 22 December 2015: We are extremely excited to announce that the winner of the AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm F/5.6E ED VR Lens is… Ian Dodds! Congratulations on the win Ian, we really hope you enjoy this lens! Thank you to everyone who entered!

Previous 24 November 2015: The AF-S NIKKOR 200-500mm F/5.6E ED VR Lens from Nikon is an exhilarating lens option, giving enthusiast FX and DX-format photographers the ability to go further with amazing zoom power and tack-sharp clarity. This compact super-telephoto zoom is ideal for bringing distant subjects closer, including birds, sports, wildlife and motorsports.

This lens opens the doors for a fresh new perspective; with a maximum reach of 500mm on FX-format Nikon cameras and a staggering 750mm equivalent reach on DX-format cameras. With a maximum aperture of f/5.6 throughout the focal range, photographers have the ability to fill much of the frame with their subject and create a pleasing background blur, even in challenging light. This lens also features Nikon’s Electromagnetic Aperture for consistent exposures, as well as VR with 4.5 stops of image stabilization. Additionally, the VR features Sport Mode, which is well-suited for capturing vibrant, sharp images of distant subjects at high frame rates or when panning with fast-moving action. All optical movement is limited to the interior of the non-extending lens barrel. This allows for a more compact, lightweight construction with a closer focusing distance, and makes using tinted/polarised filters a breeze.

Key Features:

  • F Mount Lens/FX Format
  • Aperture Range: f/5.6 to f/32
  • Three Extra-Low Dispersion Elements
  • Super Integrated Coating
  • Silent Wave Motor AF System
  • Vibration Reduction with Sport Mode
  • Internal Focus, Manual Focus Override
  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism
  • Detachable, Rotatable Tripod Collar
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

Giveaway: WIN A Nikon 200-500mm Lens!

  1. As a photographer the relationship between Orms and me were built on TRUST. It began from a room in Mike’s house in Rondebosch many moons ago. So this lens will be a present for life!

  2. Thanks for the opportunity! This would be a wonderful Christmas addition to my son’s new Nikon D600 camera. He is making photography his career of choice starting 2016.

  3. Currently have a Sigma 500 which does not give me the sharpness that this lens would – would love to find this under my Christmas tree in time for our trip to KTP! 🙂
