The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/2.8G ED VR II is a professional level fast-aperture super telephoto lens. Many of the features included are reserved for Nikon's high-end NIKKOR lenses, the two main ones being image stabilization and a Nano Crystal Coat. Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization technology eliminates some of the distortion that can be caused by movement of the camera while the shutter is opened. This results in handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, enabling much sharper images. Both Super Integrated Coating and a Nano Crystal Coat are used to enhance light transmission by reducing ghosting and internal flare. In addition, Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements work to increase sharpness and color correction by minimizing aberrations. Autofocus is fast and quiet with the use of a Silent Wave Motor (SWM), and three focus modes allow secure switching between auto and manual focus with mixed modes in between. The focus can also instantly return to a point of focus stored in memory. The aperture is circular design using 9 rounded blades, allowing for a more natural blur of background elements.
