The Nikon AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED is a mid-grade telephoto lens designed specifically for any type of professional "hand-held" photography. Nikon claims the vibration reduction and image stabilization support allows "dramatically sharper still images and video capture". The NIKKOR 70-300mm IF-ED lens is equipped with a 4.3x zoom ratio and provides what Nikon claims to be image quality equal to that of the "105-450mm lens on the 35mm SLR model". The NIKKOR 70-300mm model also includes a silent wave motor for quiet operation, and two Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements to help eliminate chromatic aberration (the failure of multiple lenses to converge images and colors on a single point; which leads to blurry and unclear photos while zoomed in).

The Nikon AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED includes additional features such as a Nikon F-Bayonet mounting type, three available focus modes, a 67mm filter size, a 9 blade diaphragm, and a total weight of 26.3 oz.
