Super-telephoto adventures start with this DX-format zoom lens.

Nikon-quality images

Designed to make the most of your Nikon DSLR’s high pixel count and advanced image sensor.


Lightweight zoom for superb super-telephoto shooting

Whether you’re new to DSLR photography or want a second lens to increase your zoom range, this DX-format 4.3x zoom lens is the ideal tool.

Create striking compositions thanks to the versatile 70–300mm focal range (FX-format equivalent: 105–450mm), which easily brings the action up close. Enjoy the flexibility to zoom in on wildlife or get in just close enough to capture brilliant close-ups of the kids at play. And if you want to shoot movies, the smooth, quiet autofocus makes this lens a particularly smart choice.


Smooth, fast autofocus: Nikon’s Stepping Motor

Nikon’s new Stepping Motor ensures this lens focuses quickly, and its quiet operation is ideal if you’re shooting movies.

When zooming in to capture a photo, you can bring your subject into focus instantly and with absolute precision. When you’re shooting video footage, the motor allows you to smoothly shift focus from subject to subject with practically no drive noise.


Simplified control

The streamlined design keeps the lens compact and makes it the perfect partner for Nikon’s smaller DX-format DSLRs.¹
Switch between Auto Focus and Manual Focus using the camera menu.² The ability to change focus settings on the camera menu, rather than with switches on the lens barrel, prevents accidental setting changes when you want to shoot.
