The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4G ED VR II is a lightweight super telephoto built for nature and sports photography. This is similar to the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 400mm f/2.8G ED VR, but it has a 500mm focal length and a maximum aperture of f/4. Apart from a slightly lighter body design, however, all of the high-end image enhancing features are still in place. Edge-to-edge sharpness is possible with both the Nikon FX and DX-format cameras, and the lens features a rugged magnesium die-cast barrel with dust and moisture resistance. VR II Image Stabilization is used to provide up to 4 stops of motion correction, and tripod detection reduces shutter release vibrations. Ghosting and flare are reduced with a combination of a Nano Crystal Coat, Super Integrated Coating (SIC), and three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements. Rapid and quiet autofocus is enabled with the Silent Wave Motor (SWM), and A/M focus mode creates secure switching between auto and manual focus. The aperture is circular, created by a rounded 9-blade diaphragm, narrowing the depth-of-field to keep the subject in sharp focus while giving the background a natural blur.
