Nikon 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 Lens The Nikon 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 Lens is a super telephoto zoom lens designed for CX-format Nikon 1 digital cameras. It provides a 35mm equivalent focal length of 189-810mm for extreme telephoto reach when shooting distant subjects. This works with a variable aperture of f/4.5-5.6 and a minimum focus distance of 3.3'.

For optical quality this lens makes use of a Super Extra-low Dispersion glass element and a Nano Crystal Coating which help to eliminate common lens ailments and provide a sharp lens with excellent color rendering capabilities. The 70-300mm also features a Vibration Reduction image stabilization system that limits the effects of camera shake at longer shutter speeds and super telephoto focal lengths.

This lens can accept an optional tripod mount which is helpful for reducing the strain on the camera mount. Additionally, it can use 62mm threaded filters and includes a lens hood.
