Welcome a new era of super-telephoto lenses with the 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6. As the world’s smallest and lightest*1 super-telephoto zoom lens, it combines superb handling with outstanding shooting possibilities. It is the first 1 NIKKOR lens designed with a focus limit switch, which enables a faster autofocus for capturing fast-moving objects at a distance. Its compact design, coupled with the powerful Vibration Reduction function on the 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 makes handheld shooting a breeze.

Versatility meets reliability

Be prepared to be impressed with the CX-format 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6. A super-telephoto zoom lens with a focal length of 70-300mm (focal length is approximately 189 to 810mm in 35mm format), you can successfully capture a multitude of shots, down to the smallest detail. The 4.3x zoom ratio means you can depend on the 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 to deliver the shots you want, with the ease of use you desire.

Superb super-telephoto shots

The compact design and powerful Vibration Reduction (VR) function (approximately 4.0 stops*2 at telephoto, and approximately 4.5 stops*2 at wide-angle) of the 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 makes handheld shooting possible even with a super-telephoto lens. It’s the first 1 NIKKOR lens to be fitted with a focus limit switch. This enables a faster autofocus (AF), which is especially effective for accurately capturing fast-moving subjects at different distances, without the need to switch lenses. The optional TR-N100 Tripod Mount will also prove to be an invaluable asset when shooting longer exposures or in dark conditions.

Capture every tiny detail

With a maximum reproduction ratio of approximately 0.41x (35mm format equivalent), the 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 can capture telephoto macro shots of even the smallest objects like flowers and insects.

A state-of-the-art marvel

The 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 possesses the latest technology, so you can benefit from the innovation at work. A first for a 1 NIKKOR lens, the super ED glass element cuts the incidence of chromatic aberration so you won’t have to worry about blurry images or colour fringes around your shots.  The Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces flare and ghost effects, ensuring your images turn out crystal clear. With this advanced lens, you can achieve the sharp, focused images surrounded by beautiful bokeh that you’ve always wanted.

Your compact companion

We all lead fast-paced lives, zipping from place to place. Nothing makes our journeys easier than having compact, lightweight items that can be easily carried around. As the world’s smallest and lightest*1 super-telephoto zoom lens, the 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 is the perfect lens to accompany you on your adventures. The retractable mechanism further enhances its portability, making storage a breeze.
