That's where moderate telephoto lenses come in handy. They're specially designed to let you fill up the frame with your subject, without getting too close. Other applications for moderate telephoto lenses include photographing distant landscapes or isolating important details in cityscapes.
A fast f/1.4 aperture makes this lens a standout for sports photography and photojournalism. With Nikon's typical attention to details, its aperture has extra blades, enabling the diaphragm shape to be a near-perfect circle. This ensures crisper images and more flattering highlights in the out-of-focus portion of the image. Close-Range-Correction (CRC) affords superb optical performance from infinity to the closest focusing range of 2.8'. Also featured is Nikon's Internal Focusing (IF) design. Its compact size and modest weight make it easy to handle. Accepts 77mm filters; HN-31 lens hood.
