FX-format compatible, 2.5x super-telephoto 200-500 mm zoom lens with a fixed maximum aperture of f/5.6.

* When attached to a DX-format digital SLR, the angle of view is equivalent to that of a lens with a focal length of 300-750 mm in FX/35mm format.

ED glass elements are employed to achieve high optical performance with minimal chromatic aberration.

Vibration Reduction (VR) system with an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.5 stops* faster in NORMAL mode.

* Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when attached to an FX-format digital SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.

VR performance immediately after the power is turned on in NORMAL mode has been improved, providing a more stable viewfinder image and enhanced blur-reduction effect on the resulting images.

SPORT mode, especially effective when shooting sports, for example, in which subjects are radically moving, is adopted as a VR mode option.

Even during high-speed continuous shooting, stable AE control is achieved with the adoption of an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism.

The screw-on type 95 mm Neutral Color NC Filter and 95 mm Circular Polarizing Filter II are optionally available.
