Faster, quieter focusing

The AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR incorporates Nikon's stepping motor (AF-P) for faster, quieter focusing that's ideal for fast action and video recording.

Softly blurred backgrounds

With an f/5.6 maximum aperture at 300mm and a nine-blade rounded diaphragm, the AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR produces a soft, round bokeh blur that beautifully complements its telephoto perspective.

Rock-steady handheld shooting

4.5 stops* of Vibration Reduction

Nikon continues to innovate in Vibration Reduction technology, opening new possibilities for handheld shooting and enhancing low-light capabilities, especially useful for a day shooting at the zoo, school sports or family events.

Compact and lightweight

At just 24 ounces, the AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR is comfortable and balanced, even on Nikon's most compact DSLR cameras. Its Internal Focusing (IF) design keeps the lens shorter, and its smooth focus ring lets you seamlessly take control when needed.

Versatile, consistent performance

Designed for comfort and piece of mind

Dust- and drip resistant and silky smooth zoom control

The lens is sealed to protect against dust and water droplets letting you follow your passion wherever it leads. The AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR's large, comfortable zoom ring provides optimal torque for smooth, even zooming across the entire range.

Precise optical performance

Close focusing and consistent high-speed shooting

Get as close as 3.9 feet from your subject with a maximum reproduction ratio of 0.25x for dazzling close-ups at 300mm. A specialized electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism (E) operates in precise sync with the camera's shutter for reliable exposure control during high-speed sequences.
