Product description

Manufacturer's Description

Picture shows a shot of a woman body-boarding in the surf.
The versatile 55-300mm 5.5x zoom enables photographers to get up-close and personal with distant subjects.

A telephoto zoom lens can dramatically broaden your creative and compositional potential. With the high-powered, super-telephoto reach of the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens from Nikon, you can capture a wide array of subjects in ways few lenses can. By adhering to strict test conditions, Nikon has created technologies to control camera shake and deliver super-fast autofocusing, so you can expect sharper shots from this DX lens even with its broad range of focal length.

The compact dimensions and weather sealed, lightweight construction of the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR make this practical lens an ideal choice for the compact D-SLR customer.

Picture shows a ballerina dancing on stage in a low-lit theatre.
Capture sharp shots even in low light. Nikon's VR II allows you to use shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible.

Dynamic Zoom Coverage

Choosing the lens that best suits your skill level and creative pursuits is a vital part of your photographic journey. Designed for use with Nikon’s DX-format SLRs, the 5.5x zoom and versatile 55-300mm focal length[1] enables photographers to get up-close and personal with distant subjects. Perfect for travel, sunsets, or sporting shots, the shallow depth of field and dramatic telephoto compression effects achievable also make for a beautiful portrait shot creating a soft background and attractively flattening facial features.

Crystal Clear Imagery

Nikon’s exclusive second generation Vibration Reduction system (VR II) enables steady hand-held shooting at all focal lengths. Delivering sharp photos and video, VR II allows you to use shutter speeds that are up to 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible. Also, being an optical system means that the viewfinder image is also stabilised, enabling more accurate autofocus acquisition and framing. Leave your tripod at home and shoot with confidence, safe in the knowledge that the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens will produce photos of outstanding sharpness and colour even in low light.

Supreme Optics

Image contains a diagram showing a cross-section through the lens and the shape and position of the lens elements.
The inclusion of two ED and one HRI element helps eliminate aberrations and distortion for superior picture quality.

Providing outstanding optical performance, the lens comprises 17 elements in 11 groups, in a design with two ED and one HRI (High Refractive Index) glass lens element. With a refractive index of more than 2.0, the HRI element offers effects equivalent to those obtained with several normal glass elements and can compensate for both field curvature and spherical aberrations. Working together, the HRI and ED elements deliver crisp images even under harsh lighting conditions while the rounded nine-blade diaphragm creates a soft rendering effect, producing high-quality natural backgrounds. This highly efficient optics system achieves clear, high contrast images at every aperture and focal length and contributes to the compact dimensions, making the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR conveniently portable.

Silent Precision

Nikon's AF-S technology is yet another reason why professional photographers like NIKKOR lenses. Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) converts travelling waves into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that’s extremely accurate and super quiet. So for discrete shooting you can set up the shot in an instant and camera focusing won’t disturb sensitive subjects like wildlife.

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR from Nikon is an exceptionally affordable, VR super-telephoto zoom lens which delivers a level of clarity and reliability that every passionate photographer can appreciate.

[1] The actual focal length of 55-300mm has an angle of view equivalent to that of an 82.5-450mm lens in 35mm [135] format.
