Nikon AF-P Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR Review


The AF-P Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR lens was announced in August 2017, and is mainly aimed at full-frame camera users. DX (APS-C) format users can also use it, but it gives an equivalent focal length of 105-450mm. As an AF-P lens, it features Nikon’s stopper motor technology, which is designed to lock onto subjects quickly and accurately. It’s important to note that AF-P lenses are not compatible with some older Nikon camera bodies – make sure you check yours is before buying. Other improvements to the previous 70-300mm lens include an improvement to the minimum focusing distance, which is now 1.2 metres throughout the lens’ focal range. There’s also Advanced Vibration Reduction, which enables you to shoot at speeds up to 4.5 steps slower than otherwise. Additionally there’s a SPORT VR mode, which is designed to deliver a more stable viewfinder image, which can be useful when shooting fast-moving subjects, such as sport or action. The lens is weather-resistant, being protected from dust and moisture. If you use it with a weather-resistant camera, such as the D850, you have a complete weather-sealed package.
