The lens also supports macro shooting with the capability to shoot as close as 1.6 inches.

Optical Vibration Reduction Image Stabilization

The Nikon VR Image Stabilization system incorporated into the NIKKOR Lens compensates for camera shake resulting in sharper images - even when shooting under unsteady conditions such as on a boat, and provides the ability to shoot at shutter speeds as much as three stops slower without blurring the image for sharper natural light images. In addition, the VR system provides faster and clearer framing on the cameras monitor as well as smoother action when using the movie mode.
