Incorporating Nikon's second-generation Vibration Reduction (VR II) system enables flexible hand-held shooting by stabilizing the image to compensate for the blur caused by camera shake. This provides the equivalence of 2.5 shutter speed stops to help in capturing sharper images in low light or at extended zoom lengths. The Silent Wave Motor and Internal Focusing system provide fast and quiet auto focusing action, and the nine-blade rounded diaphragm makes out-of-focus elements blend smoothly to produce natural-looking, harmonious backgrounds.

Versatile Telephoto Zoom

A lightweight telephoto zoom for FX format DSLRs provides extensive reach to magnify distance subjects. When used on a DX-format DSLR, its 35mm focal length equivalence is 105-450mm.

Silent Wave Motor

The Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables quiet auto focusing with quick and convenient switching between auto focus and manual operation.

Internal Focusing

The Internal Focusing (IF) design for a fixed lens length and non-rotating front element allows the use of circular polarizing filters and lens-mounted flash accessories.

Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization

Vibration Reduction, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 2.5 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible for sharper still images and video capture.

Extra-Low Dispersion Glass

Two ED glass elements minimize chromatic aberration across the entire zoom range while ensuring high resolution and contrast.

Super Integrated Lens Coating

Nikon's proprietary lens coating improves light transmission, reducing ghosting and flare.

Rounded Diaphragm

9-blade rounded diaphragm makes out-of-focus elements blend together smoothly for natural-looking backgrounds.
