This means you can shoot at higher shutter speeds and still achieve bright, sharp images.

Beautiful background blur
Maximum depth-of-field control
The AF Zoom-NIKKOR 80-200mm f/2.8D ED offers superior depth-of-field control for giving your photos and HD videos a natural, soft background blur (bokeh). Separate your subject from the background, or draw focus to a specific area of your composition. Nikon’s Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass ensures superior sharpness, contrast and color correction, even at the lens’ maximum aperture setting.

A-M stands for Auto-Manual Mode. Thanks to a mechanism incorporated in the lens barrel, smooth focusing operation in Manual focus mode is realized in the same way as users have become accustomed to with conventional manual-focus lenses by adding an appropriate torque to the focus ring.
