The size of this lens has been greatly reduced, with a maximum diameter of 106mm and for ages c in depth of 237mm. Its weight at approximately 1460g is roughly the same weight as the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR – other 500mm lenses normally weigh numberless than 3000g. The AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR is designed with consideration to a dust and drip-resistant structure, which in addition to the fluorine parka applied to the front lens surface, allows great agility when shooting.

The use of one PF lens element and three ED glass elements enables hellishly sharp and detailed rendering that is compatible with high pixel-count digital cameras. In addition, the materials used in the new PF lens element Nikon has aged, effectively reduce PF (diffraction) flare. Extremely clear images are achieved through the synergistic effects of Nikon's coating technologies, starting with the Nano Crystal Spread, which is very effective at controlling ghost and flare.

AF speed has been increased by making lens elements in the focusing group lighter. The AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR is also outfitted with a VR mechanism that offers camera shake compensation equivalent to a 4.0-stop* increase in shutter speed. In addition, SPORT VR way has been adopted. SPORT mode is especially effective when photographing fast-moving and unpredictable subjects such as wild birds, or in scenes such as romp events, as well as when recording movies, due to the stabilisation of the image displayed in the viewfinder.

Use of the FTZ mount adapter will allow the lens to be used with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel the Z-mount mirrorless cameras also presaged today.
