The AF NIKKOR 24-85mm f/2.8-4D IF Lens from Nikon provides wide-angle to short telephoto perspectives in the FX format and a 36-127.5mm focal length equivalence when used on a DX format DSLR. Its variable aperture offers a maximum of f/2.8 at the wide angle end for effective low light capability and shallow depth of field control. Its compact build and versatile focal range makes it an ideal lens for travel and everyday use.
Its internal focusing system enables use of front end filters without unwanted rotation and an aperture control ring offers smooth manual control of exposure in addition to auto exposure through the camera body. With a macro mode at the telephoto end, this lens offers effective close-up shooting with a 1:2 reproduction ratio. Two aspherical lens elements reduce aberrations and Nikon's Super Integrated Lens Coating minimizes ghosting and flare.
This lens' autofocus function is compatible with Nikon DSLRs featuring a built-in autofocus motor. It will not support auto focusing when used with certain DSLRs that do not have an integrated focus motor, such as the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D3200, D3300, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300.
