Nikon 80-400mm f4.5-5.6 D ED VR AF Nikkor - Lens

Nikon 80-400mm f4.5-5.6 D ED VR AF Nikkor - Lens

Autofocus telephoto zoom lens made for F-mount SLR cameras by Nikon starting in 2000. It has Vibration Reduction (VR) and uses Nikon's Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) elements to improve image quality. Autofocus requires a body with a built-in screw focus motor. It has the AI ridge and AI-S indent, so it will meter properly on most manual Nikon cameras (excluding F, F2, and Nikkormat models) and will work with the advanced program modes of later models. Plastic body available in black.

  • Minimum focus distance: 2.3m

Nikon F

Nikon introduced their first SLR, the Nikon F, in 1959. Alongside it they unveiled a series of lenses and a new lens mount that would carry them to professional success for the next decades. To this day, all Nikon DSLRs use the Nikon F mount.

In the beginning, Nikon lenses communicated aperture information to the body using a metal coupling fork, affectionately known as "bunny ears". Soon after, Nikon began using a similar system that automatically told the camera the maximum aperture of the lens. This Automatic Indexing (AI) system stuck around for decades in lenses and is still found on Nikon's high-end professional DSLRs even though new lenses communicate this information electronically.

With only minor compatibility issues (don't use a pre-AI lens on AI bodies or modern digital cameras), Nikon F lenses and bodies are pretty much interchangeable.
