Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens - 2191-NIKON
Nikon's AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is an advanced standard zoom lens. While designed for FX-format it is also compatible with DX-format DSLRs. You will enjoy stunning performance from wide-angle to super telephoto perspectives with an 18 in minimum focus at every focal length. This lens sports Nikon's VR II image stabilization which compensates for camera shake providing up to 3.5 shutter speeds stops of shake control to enable handheld shooting in dim light and at telephoto focal lengths. There is even a Silent Wave Motor for smooth and near silent autofocusing and a M/A focus mode in order to quickly change between manual and auto focus control. Nikon designed this lens with two extra-low dispersion elements and three aspherical elements which reduce aberrations to provide sharp, color-accurate images. The glass has been treated with Nikon's Super Integrated Coating - an optical lens coating process that maximizes light transmission while enhancing clarity and contrast.
SILENT 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.
Nikon's aspherical 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 image.
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.
VIBRATION REDUCTION (VR)
Nikon's Vibration Reduction technology provides superb image stabilization for handheld macro shooting. This lens administers exceedingly clear, natural images that remain crisp at greater distances. With the extended focal length, you will enjoy enhanced quality in any photographic situation.
EXTRA LOW DISPERSION GLASS (ED)
Nikon's Low 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.
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.
SUPER INTEGRATED COATING
The Nikon 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.
