The AF Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4-5.6G is a portable telephoto zoom lens featuring Nikon quality optics, high-performance Nikon Super Integrated Coating and a rounded diaphragm opening, which makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural.
This lens is the first in a new line of G-type Nikkor lenses, which are designed with no aperture rings.
With the G-type Nikkor lens, the aperture should be selected on the camera body for aperture-priority auto and manual exposure mode.
The lens is fully compatible with the F5, F100, F80, F65, F60, F50, F-401-series, PRONEA 600i, PRONEA S and D1 cameras. For the F4, F90-series, F70, F-801-series and F-601M cameras, only programmed auto or shutter-priority auto exposure mode can be used. (The lens is not compatible with other cameras.)
