An updated version of a favorite lens among sports and wildlife photographers, the AF-S Nikkor 300mm F2.8 ED VR II is designed to be small and light enough to hand-hold while Nikon claims that its VR II system can offer 'four or more' stops of compensation for camera shake. It also includes nano-crystal coating and is dust and moisture sealed.
