Product Description
Manufacturer's Description
The AF-S VR 70-300 f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED is a high-performance super telephoto zoom lens that has been designed to meet the demands of both digital and 35mm format SLR users. It offers a 4.3x zoom with a range of 70-300mm (105-450mm on a DX Nikon D-SLR) and features ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements that ensure superior optical performance. This lens incorporates Nikon's second-generation vibration reduction system (VR II) that allows flexible hand-held shooting by stabilizing the image to the equivalent extent of using a shutter speed that is four stops faster when compared with a conventional lens (as determined by Nikon performance test). The SWM (Silent Wave Motor) and IF (Internal Focusing) ensure fast and quiet focusing action, and the nine-blade rounded diaphragm makes out-of-focus elements blend smoothly to produce natural-looking, harmonious backgrounds.

Product Description
The AF-S VR 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED lens from Nikon is a high-performance tele-lens zoom designed to satisfy both digital and traditional 24 x 36 camera users' needs. Offering a 4.3 x amplitude and a focus range of 70 - 300 mm (or 105 - 450 mm on a digital camera from the DX Nikon series), this built-in lens, as well as 2 auxiliary ED glass lenses, guarantee high optical performances with reduced dispersion. In addition, the AF-S VR 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED uses Nikon's new generation vibration reduction system (VR II) to allow you to take handheld photos thanks to its shutter speed that is 4 times slower than that of traditional cameras, for great results (according to performance tests by Nikon). The SWM (Silent Wave Motor) and internal focus (IF) assure a quick and silent operation. Furthermore, the circular diaphragm with 9 glass slides gives natural and harmonious results for unfocused elements in the background. With the AF-S VR 70-300 mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED, you have a state-of-the-art lens that will enable you to take many splendid long distance photos, with spectacular and realistic visual results.

VR tastic!

therealpmuk;2916960£5,00 more, but they will price match.

Hong Kong based grey imports, so why would anyone choose them over Amazon when they are more expensive?:?

Also grey imports with abysmal customer service (just do a search for them on this site). Wouldn't touch them with a barge pole. ;-)
