NikonToday Nikon introduces the world's first 2x supertele lens with VR (Vibration Reduction) and SWM (Silent Wave Motor). The AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 200-400mm f4G IF-ED lens combines a supertele range with the benefits of Vibration Reduction that allows users to capture images under difficult light conditions. With the Vibration Reduction system a slower shutter speed can be used to capture images without the use of a tripod. This can be achieved in Normal and in Active mode. The VR-system can also automatically recognize a situation where panning is used to capture an image. The lens features 24 glass elements in 17 groups where four ED-glass elements take care of sharp and contrasty results when used with film of digital media.
If the new lens is used with a Nikon digital SLR camera that is equipped with a DX sensor the focal range will be equivalent to 300-600mm with a 35mm camera. The built-in Silent Wave motor provides a fast and silent auto focus.

The largest aperture of f4 and the total physical length of the lens remains the same with al focal distances. With one press on the new Memory Set-button, nearby the body of the camera, the focus can be reset immediately. The rubber packing around the F-mount and the filter holder protects the lens from influence of bad weather conditions. Due to a removable front element of bright glass there is no risk of and damage on the front of the lens. The lens is compatible with the teleconverter TC-14E II and TC 20E II. The new lens has a weight of 3200g , 300g lesser than the AF-S Nikkor 500mm f4D IF-ED II.

The lens will be delivered with a sun hood (HK-30), carrying strap (LN-1 and a soft case (CL-2) included. The AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 200-400mm f4G IF-ED will be available around autumn 2003.
