Overview

Description by Nikon:

Definitive Wide-angle Zoom Lens
Versatile wide-angle lens, perfect for travel, land and cityscapes, and general photography.

Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization
Vibration Reduction, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture.

Nano Crystal Coat
Further reduces ghosting and interior flare across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image clarity.

3 Aspherical Lens Elements
Aspherical lens elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of aberration, even when shooting at the widest available aperture.

2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements
Offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture settings.

Internal Focus (IF)
Provides fast and quiet autofocus without changing the length of the lens, retaining working distance throughout the focus range.

Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
Enables fast, accurate and quiet autofocus.

M/A Focus Mode Switch
Enables quick changes between manual and autofocus operation.

Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm
Renders more natural appearance of out-of-focus image elements.

"Typical of Nikon's professional grade lenses, the build quality is very good, but in this case the lens isn't overly large or heavy. At 125mm long, it's only a bit larger than Nikon's diminutive, but rather old 20-35mm f/2.8 and the weight of 685g makes it balance extremely well on my Nikon D700 with or without the optional MB-D10 grip.

High quality plastics have been employed for most of the construction which have a textured finish that
