Versatile and compact 3.6x Zoom-NIKKOR brings the action to the photographer. Ideal for portraiture, family, sports, nature and wildlife.
An ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element minimizes chromatic aberration, contributing to superior optical performance.
Focus mode switch enables quick switching between A (Autofocus) and M (Manual Focus).
7-blade rounded diaphragm provides more natural out-of-focus highlights.
Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization
Vibration Reduction, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 3 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture.
New compact rod-type Silent Wave Motor (SW) enables ultra-high speed auto focusing with exceptional accuracy and super-quiet operation.
The lens is constructed with 15 elements in 11 groups.
