Nikon AF-S 28-300mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens
The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED
VR is a full-frame super zoom lens for the Nikon F mount. Inspired by
the success of the AF-S DX 18-200mm VR among owners of DX bodies, this is
Nikon’s first FX lens with a 10.7x zoom range. Packed with Nikon goodies
like a Silent Wave Motor (SWM), Vibration Reduction (VR), Super
Integrated Coating (SIC) as well as an optical formula that includes two
ED and three aspherical lens elements. In terms of features, the
Nikon 28-300mm VR has quite a lot to offer. It has an internal focus
(IF) mechanism and a Silent Wave Motor, allowing you to use manual focus even
when you are in auto-focus mode (denoted with the usual M/A sign on the lens
barrel). It also features two forms of Vibration Reduction (VR), Normal
and Active. Normal VR compensates for rapid and small vibrations resulting from
shaky hands, but ignores slow and wide movements to permit you to use e.g. the
focus-recompose technique or panning. Active VR tries to compensate for every
movement, fast and slow, large and small, and is therefore improved if you are
shooting from e.g. a moving vehicle.
Versatile zoom lens offers a broad focal length
range that's perfect for travel, landscapes, portraits and distant subjects.
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.
Offers superior sharpness and colour correction by efficiently minimizing
chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture settings.
