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 Nikons 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.
