New Firmware Update for Nikon 300mm f/4E PF ED VR Lens

Nikon has posted a new firmware update for the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR telephoto prime lens.

According to Nikon, the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR lens when used with the D800, D800E or D810, images captured at shutter speeds of around 1/125 s with the VR function enabled sometimes exhibit noticeable blur.

Details of this firmware service are as follows.

Firmware update details
We have confirmed that when the AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR lens is used with the D800, D800E or D810, images captured at shutter speeds of around 1/125 s with the VR function enabled (NORMAL or SPORT) sometimes exhibit noticeable blur.

To reduce the occurrence of this, we will offer a service for updating your AF-S NIKKOR 300mm f/4E PF ED VR firmware.
