Great for Nikon folks: Nikon will announce a new AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR full frame lens this year!
Nikon is planning to announce 5 new Nikkor lenses in 2017. This Nikon AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR telephoto zoom lens will be the second one. The first one is rumored to be a ultra-wide angle lens.
This Nikon AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR full frame lens will replace the current Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED VR Lens. It seems that Nikon is gradually introducing the “AF-P” technology in its lenses. Nikon says that their stepping motor lenses are both faster and quieter than their predecessors, making them quite appealing for video recording.
Currently, Nikon has four AF-P NIKKOR lenses, which are all designed for APS-C DSLR cameras:
- Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR Lens ($396.95)
- Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED Lens ($346.95)
- Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Lens ($246.95)
- Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G Lens ($196.95)
