Nikon's AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR is an advanced super telephoto zoom lens. An F-mount lens desinged for DX-format DSLR cameras. It's equivalent to 82.5-450mm in the 35mm format. Focusing to 4.6' at every focal length, this lens is a perfect choice for a variety of applications including travel, landscapes and distant subjects. Nikon packed this powerful lens with tons of features including e Silent Wave Motor for smooth and virtually silent AF action. With its VR II image stabilization you can manually hold the camera at up to 3 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, creating crisp and clear images.
NIKKOR G LENS
NIKKOR's G line of lenses are specifically engineered with no aperture ring. This enables easier operation and leads to less mistakes because the aperture does not need to be set to a minimum
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.
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.
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.
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.
This switch is an element which locks the focus ring during autofocus, allowing the behavior to mimic a manual focus lens in manual focus mode. When the focusing ring is rotated with a sufficient load you will experience convenient manual focusing maneuvers.
HIGH REFRACTIVE INDEX (HRI)
Nikon's HRI lenses have a refractive index of more than 2.0. One HRI lens delivers the same effects obtained with several normal glass elements while compensating for both curve-of-field as well as spherical aberrations, allowing for enhanced optical performance in a streamlined, compact body
