Nikon 500mm f/4E FL ED VR vs 500mm f/4G ED VR Specs Comparison

Here is the list of specs comparison between the new Nikon 500mm f/4E FL ED VR lens and the previous Nikon 500mm f/4G ED VR lens. You can take a look at the key differences between the two Nikkor lenses.

Optimized for fast shooting speeds and working in difficult conditions, the new AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/4E FL ED VR is an impressive telephoto designed for Nikon FX-format DSLRs. The sophisticated optical design incorporates two fluorite and three extra-low dispersion elements to control chromatic aberrations and distortions, as well as lessen the overall weight of the lens.
