Nikkor 500mm f/4 IF-ED AF-S II lens

Full frame sized image

Lenses that create APS-C sized image are designed for digital only. They cannot be used on cameras that have image sensor larger than the APS-C format. These lenses are not suitable for film cameras either.


Ultrasonic AF

Lenses with ultrasonic focusing mechanism tend to be quiter and faster than traditionally focusing lenses.


No stepping motor AF

Lenses with stepping motor focusing mechanism are better for contrast based focusing, and are quiter and faster than traditionally focusing lenses.


One or more Low Dispersion lens element is used

Low Dispersion lens elements help to reduce chromatic aberration.


Not stabilized

Image stabilization helps to reduce blur caused by hand shake, especially at high focal length or in low light situations. Image stabilization can give 1 to 3 stop advantage over none stabilized lens, based on the reciprocal rule.


Internal Focusing

Internally focusing lenses don't change their size while setting focus.


Supports drop-in filters

Drop-in filters are used in those lenses where either the front lens is too large, or the field of view doesn't permit the use of traditional filters at the front of the lens. Usually bright tele and ultra-wide angle lenses support this filter type.

Lightweight, magnesium die-cast construction with tripod mounting foot for easier handling. Minimum AF operation focusing distance of approximately 16 feet (reproduction ratio: 0.12) for dramatic close-ups. Internal Focusing (IF) for fast, smooth autofocusing, more compact design, and very responsive manual focusing. High-performance Nikon Super-Integrated Coating for superior color reproduction and minimzed internal ghosting and flare. Accepts optional AF-S Teleconverters TC-14E II, TC-17E II* and TC-20E II* and AF-I Teleconverters TC-14E and TC-20E*
