The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR Lens features a wide to medium tele 3.5x zoom and VR image stabilization. It's an excellent standard lens that can be used for everyday shooting. The 24 - 85mm focal length can cover everything from wide-angle shots to portrait shooting. It lets you shoot up to four shutter speeds slower, thanks to the VR Image Stabilization. And, it affords superior close focusing at 1.25 feet away from every focal length.

In addition to the obvious advantages a reliable everyday lens provides, it also employs a 7-blade rounded diaphragm opening, three aspherical lens elements and one extra-low dispersion ED element. The 7-bladed rounded diaphragm allows for beautiful bokeh and blurred background effects in photos with a shallow depth of field.

Having one ED glass element and three aspherical elements means this lens will provide you and your camera with spectacular image quality, clarity and contrast in every frame you capture. It's suited for all levels
of photography and video capture, from amateur to professional. Plus, it touts features like Nikon's Super Integrated Coating, internal focus, silent wave motor and M/A (manual/auto) focus mode switch.

Three Aspherical Lens Elements
This is another unique Nikon innovation, which virtually eliminates coma and other types of aberration, further improving image integrity
One Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Element
A single ED element offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration - even at the widest aperture settings
Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC)
Nikon's Super Integrated Coating enhances light transmission and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare
M/A (Manual/Auto) Focus Mode Switch
This NIKKOR lens features a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens
Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
A significant innovation in AF lens technology, Nikon's Silent Wave Motor uses ultrasonic (inaudible) vibrations-rather than a gear system-to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation
Superior Close Focus
With a superior close range focus, you'll be able to focus to 1.25 feet at every focal length
Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization
Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization, which is tailored to each lens, enables handheld shooting at up to four shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible for dramatically sharper images and HD videos - even in low light
Internal Focusing
All internal optical movement is limited to the interior of the non-extending lens barrel, which allows for a more compact, lightweight construction - as well as a closer focusing distance
Rounded 7-Blade Diaphragm
The rounded 7-blade diaphragm renders a beautiful, natural background blur (Bokeh) at its wider aperture settings
