AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8G ED is an advanced standard zoom lens ideally suited
for general photography, thanks to its wide-angle to portrait
perspectives. While specially designed
for incredible edge-to-edge sharpness on the Nikon full-frame FX format, it
provides the 35mm focal
length equivalence of 36-105mm on DX-format cameras. The f/2.8 maximum aperture
means you can capture stunning images even in challenging low light
situations. You can create artistic
shallow depth of field and pleasing out-of-focus highlights enhanced by a
rounded 9-blade diaphragm. Nikon packed
this lens with features including three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) elements and Precision
Glass Mold (PGM) aspherical lenses that help control chromatic aberrations
while enhancing sharpness and contrast, even at the widest aperture settings.
Nano Crystal and Super Integrated lens coatings enhance light transmission,
reducing flare and ghosting. There is
internal focusing paired with a Silent Wave Motor for smooth and quiet focusing
action. three ED (Extra-low Dispersion)

SUPER INTEGRATED COATING
anti-reflective coating is an optical design feature which ensures superior
clarity and image brilliance, even in poor or unfavorable lighting
conditions. Nikon applies the
anti-reflective coating through a special process, layering the lens surface in
order to substantially reduce unwanted flare or ghosting. This process helps to ensure incredibly rich
image contrast and true color fidelity.
WAVE MOTOR (SWM)
Nikon's Silent Wave Motor technology
provides rapid auto-focusing while remaining exceedingly quiet and
accurate. "Traveling Waves"
are transformed into a rotational energy that focuses the optics.
AF-S NIKKOR lenses
include Nikon's proprietary M/A mode.
This feature allows you to effortlessly switch from autofocus to manual
operation with virtually no time lag.
Regardless of the AF mode, you can simply and conveniently switch to
manual focus even during AF servo operation.
lens design creates a more complex surface profile. This helps to greatly reduce spherical and
other optical aberrations. The design
further ensures consistent imaging performance throughout the entire focal
range, while delivering incredible sharpness up to the periphery of the
INTERNAL FOCUSING (IF)
Nikon's Internal Focusing feature allows
you to focus a lens without changing its size.
With IF Lenses all optical movement is restricted to the interior of the
lens barrel, providing for a lighter, more efficient design. Faster focusing is produced by a lighter and
compact focusing lens group.
DISPERSION GLASS (ED)
Dispersion technology is engineered to reduce chromatic aberrations,
eliminating the tendency of light of different colors to focus to different
points at the image plane. This means
your images will come out crisp and clear, with less of a chance of defracting
light into an unwanted rainbow of colors.
Take shots exactly like you want, without any flare-up or blurring.
CRYSTAL COAT Nano Crystal Coat eliminates internal
lens element reflections, particularly flaring common in ultra-wideangle
lenses. Designed with multiple layers of
Nikon's low refractive index coating, Nikon represents an industry leader in
lens technology by employing this innovative lens coating technology for use in
