This AF-S Nikkor 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR FX-format lens is ideal for shooting distant subjects in track and field, winter sports, and water sports. This premium lens includes a dedicated, custom-tuned 1.25x teleconverter that extends the focal length to 1000 mm with effective maximum aperture of f/7, while maintaining outstanding optical performance.
This lens features a rugged magnesium alloy barrel construction that provides durability and strength that are suitable for its use with wildlife, nature, and sports shooting applications. The lens construction integrates two fluorite lens elements to help reduce the overall weight of the lens while also offering chromatic aberration-reduction benefits. The fluorite elements achieve higher transmission rates and lower dispersion than regular or ED glass elements.
A Nano Crystal Coat is applied to lens elements to minimize surface and internal reflections and ghosting for greater image clarity and contrast. Built-in Vibration Reduction image stabilization helps to lessen the appearance of blur caused by camera shake by up to four shutter speed stops, which greatly benefits this lens' use in low-light conditions and fast-paced photography. Additionally, an electromagnetic aperture mechanism is integrated into the lens design to provide greater exposure control stability that is especially beneficial when working with faster continuous shooting rates.
