The AF-S Nikkor 500mm f/4 D ED IF is a powerful super-telephoto autofocus lens for Nikon Digital SLR cameras and 35mm film SLR cameras.  It's a thoroughly professional grade lens that produces top-level sharpness, contrast, and color.  The narrow 5° angle of view makes the lens well suited for high magnification outdoor photography and it's bright f/4 maximum aperture and ultra-fast AF-S SWM (Silent Wave Motor) make allow it to keep up with demanding fast-paced action.

The Nikon 500mm f/4 D uses 11 elements in 9 groups (not including the protective front glass or 52mm drop-in filter), three of those elements are made of ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass and the results are simply superb.  The f/4 maximum aperture produces an amazing amount of pleasant background blur, allows access to fast shutter speeds, and makes shooting in dim light or with teleconverters possible.

Autofocus performance is ultra-responsive thanks to a high-speed AF-S SWM (Silent Wave Motor) driving an internal focus mechanism that also allows full-time manual focus override.  The provided focus limit switch can further reduce AF seek time when in use by restricting the focus range to either infinity to 10m or 12m to close focus.  Four exterior AF function buttons allow additional focus control and set-up customization.

Originally the Nikon 500mm f/4 D ED IF (Nikon USA part# 1937) is a faster focusing and lighter replacement for the Nikkor 500mm F/4 D ED IF AF-I

An indispensable tool for shooting sports and other high-action events, this new super-telephoto lens uses Nikon's performance-proven Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass. Distance Signal technology provides focused-distance information. It also features Internal Focusing and Nikon's unique Silent Wave Motor technology to all but eliminate gear noise. The Silent Wave Motor system induces "traveling waves" which are converted to rotational energy to focus the optics.

NOTE: AF-S lenses, while able to manually focus with all Nikon F-mount cameras, will autofocus ONLY with the following cameras- N65, N70/F70, N80/F80, N90s/F90x, F4, F4s, F5, F100, D1 & D1x.
