Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR Lens
Super steady and always ready, the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR workhorse is prepared to take your work to the next level. With up to 4 stops of VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization, you can capture sharp, steady handheld stills and HD videos, and shoot at slower shutter speeds in low-light situations without sacrificing sharpness. Pair it with a Nikon full-frame high-resolution DSLR to capture the decisive moment with a thrilling balance of sharpness and soft blur effects. Covering the sweet spot of the zoom range with a fast f/2.8 constant aperture, you'll be ready for everything from environmental portraits, studio photography, landscape, architecture (exteriors and interiors), press events and weddings.
Aspherical Extra-Low Dispersion Element
This lens features Aspherical Extra-Low Dispersion (ASP/ED) element is paired with traditional AS, ED and HRI elements for a thrilling new level of optical precision. Photos and videos take on a beautiful balance of sharpness and soft blur effects, virtually free of flare, ghosting, coma, chromatic or spherical aberration, even at the far edges of the frame.
Faster Shutter Speeds
This 24-70mm lens is the sweet spot of the zoom range for many photographers, great for everything from landscapes and studio work to weddings and press events. The f/2.8 constant aperture allows for faster shutter speeds to freeze fast action, renders a beautiful bokeh blur and performs brilliantly in low light.
Silent Wave Motor
This AF-S NIKKOR lens feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.
Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism
An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting. With conventional D/G type lenses, the diaphragm blades are operated by mechanical linkage levers.
Super Integrated Coating
This Nikon Lens features super integrated multilayer coating of the optical elements. It features an anti-reflective coating that virtually eliminates internal lens element reflections across a wide range of wavelengths. The Nano Crystal Coat solves ghost effects caused by red light and effectively reduces ghost and flare caused by light entering the lens diagonally. It also features fluorine coat that effectively repels dust, water droplets, grease or dirt, ensuring easy removal even when they adhere to the lens surface.
High Refractive Index
With a high refractive index of more than 2.0, this lens can offer effects equivalent to those obtained with several normal glass elements and can compensate for both field curvature and spherical aberrations. Therefore, HRI lenses achieve great optical performance in an even more compact body.
To complete the evolution, the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR also includes Nikon's Vibration Reduction image stabilization technology. It reduces camera shake and vibration up to 4.0 stops. Capture sharp, steady handheld stills and HD videos, and shoot at slower shutter speeds in low-light situations without sacrificing sharpness.
