Faster, quieter focusing

The AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR incorporates Nikon's stepping motor (AF-P) for faster, quieter focusing that's ideal for fast action and video recording.

Softly blurred backgrounds

With an f/5.6 maximum aperture at 300mm and a nine-blade rounded diaphragm, the AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR produces a soft, round bokeh blur that beautifully complements its telephoto perspective.

Designed for comfort and piece of mind

Dust- and drip resistant and silky smooth zoom control

The lens is sealed to protect against dust and water droplets letting you follow your passion wherever it leads. The AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR's large, comfortable zoom ring provides optimal torque for smooth, even zooming across the entire range.

Precise optical performance

Close focusing and consistent high-speed shooting

Get as close as 3.9 feet from your subject with a maximum reproduction ratio of 0.25x for dazzling close-ups at 300mm. A specialized electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism (E) operates in precise sync with the camera's shutter for reliable exposure control during high-speed sequences.


  • A/M

    A/M stands for Auto-Priority Manual Mode. This mode also enables an easy transition from autofocus to manual during AF operation. However, mode switch sensitivity has been altered to reduce the possibility of sudden unintentional switching to manual focus while shooting.
  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

    An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting. With conventional D/G type lenses, the diaphragm blades are operated by mechanical linkage levers.
  • ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass

    An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
  • IF Lens

    A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
  • M/A

    Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
  • Pulse Motor

    Nikon's "P" series of NIKKOR lenses use a pulse motor (utilizing stepping motors) to focus smoother and quieter than previous drive systems. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.
  • Vibration Reduction

    A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
