This new lens is being developed as the first truly compact, lightweight AF-S Zoom-Nikkor lens to offer the VR (Vibration Reduction) function.
The lens is targeted at professional and advanced amateur photographers to whom the advantages of high optical performance and high speed are top priorities.
The lens not only features Nikon's exclusive built-in SWM (Silent Wave Motor) for ultra-fast, ultra-quiet operation, but also employs Nikon's VR system which minimizes blur caused by camera shake. The adaptive VR system allows the use of slow shutter speeds when dictated by low-level available lighting or the demands of specific subjects. An secondary "Active" VR mode is available, which compensates for the intense vibrations experienced when shooting from a mechanical platform such as a moving motor vehicle, ship or helicopter.
This lens delivers superior optical performance thanks to the incorporation of five ED glass elements and high-grade Nikon Super Integrated Coating. With a fast constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 at all focal lengths it is an eesential lens for professional-level photographic needs.
