Nikon is working on a telephoto zoom lens for its full-frame F-mount DSLRs: the AF-S Nikkor 120-300mm F2.8E FL ED SR VR. From those acronyms we can safely say that it will be stabilized and have ED and fluorite elements, though 'SR' is a new one. We think it's safe to say that this lens will be rugged and sealed against moisture and dust.

From the photo above you can spot the usual set of switches for a pro-level lens: AF/MF, focus distance limiter, VR mode, memory recall/AF-L/AF-On and focus beep.

Nikon promises more information and pricing on this sports-oriented lens later this year.
