A new zoom lens is coming from Nikon: it’s AF-P Nikkor 70-300mm F4.5-5.6E ED VR. It’s designed for Nikon full-frame cameras, and video shooters will especially find it attractive because of the fast and quiet AF performance.
This is the first FX Nikkor lens with a stepping motor, which makes the AF fast, smooth and quiet. Additionally, it’s equipped with VR function that provides a level of compensation equivalent to a 4.5-stop increase in shutter speed, which is an improvement over their current 70-300 f/4-5.6 lens. Nikon has released a sample video filmed with this lens, along with some more details and specs. [Read more…]
