From ephotozine:

“This telephoto lens sports a reasonably fast maximum aperture of f/4 and all the usual features you might expect on a top of the range Nikon telephoto lens, such as Vibration Reduction, fast, silent focusing with full time manual override and Nikon’s Nano Crystal optical coatings to suppress ghosting and flare and fluorine elements. What sets this lens apart is that it’s the second lens in Nikon’s line-up to include an electronic aperture diaphragm, to ensure accurate exposures when shooting at fast frame rates, and it is the first lens from Nikon to include a Phase-Fresnel optical element. This cleverly shaped piece of glass is similar to Canon’s Diffractive Optics technology found in their 400mm f/4L DO IS USM lenses, and helps to reduce the overall size and weight of the lens, without compromising the optical design. The inclusion of these fancy optics comes at a slight premium over Nikon’s previous 300mm f/4 lenses, costing around £1640. In this review, we’ll take a look at how it performs.”
