AF-S 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
With a versatile zoom range from wide angle to long telephoto, and weighing only 800 grams, the AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens from Nikon is an excellent choice for travel photography, or when carrying more than one lens is not an option. Designed for use with full-frame DSLR cameras, this lens is also compatible with DX-format DSLRs where it will provide a 35mm equivalent focal length of 42-450mm.
VR II image stabilisation compensates for camera shake by providing up to 3.5 shutter speeds stops of compensation. A Silent Wave Motor autofocus system provides smooth and quiet AF action, and for precise focusing an M/A focus mode enables quick switching between manual and autofocus modes. This is complimented by an Internal Focus (IF) design that keeps the front element from rotating during focusing.
The optical construction includes two extra-low dispersion elements and three aspherical elements to reduce aberrations for sharp, true-colour images. The lens elements have also been treated with Nikon's Super Integrated Coating for improved light transmission. A rounded 9-blade aperture helps to create pleasing background highlights.
