SP AF 200-500mm F/5-6.3 Di LD [IF]

Remarkable ultra-telephoto lens

This super performance ( SP) tele-zoom has everything to satisfy the desires of successful nature or sport photographers. The extreme tele-end lets you bring your far away subjects up close and allows you to capture the images in a frame-filling format. The power to bring your subject nearer makes out interesting image compositions, and extends the photographic and creative horizon substantially. Furthermore, the lens offers fantastic image quality thanks to the application of modern design principles and high-quality glass.

The lens is equipped with a tripod adaptor and a Filter Effect Control ( FEC), to simplify the use of polarization filters. Chromatic aberration, which is a problem with many telephoto lenses, was minimized by the application of a LD (Low dispersion) element with low color dispersion. Clear colors, high resolution and brilliance are visible at every focal length as a result of this optimization.

* SP (super performance) high-capacity lenses of excellent optical and mechanical quality.  

The designation “Di” (Digitally Integrated Design) marks a generation of lenses, which have been specially adapted to the higher requirements of digital SLR cameras (APS-C and full frame).  

Please note: The Nikon mount is only compatible in the MF mode with the following Nikon cameras: D40, D40X and D60. This is due to fact that these 3 cameras require lenses with a built-in motor.  The Nikon version of this lens does not have a built-in motor.
