This lens offers photographers at all levels a highly versatile zoom range at an affordable price and manageable size, while maintaining the high standards of quality associated with Nikkor lenses. Its versatile wide angle/telephoto capability and compact size ensures that the photographer is always prepared for every photographic situation, making it an ideal lens to carry while traveling on long trips or shooting after-school soccer matches.
This lens features Nikon's G-type design, enabling lens apertures to be selected directly from Nikon SLR camera bodies that include a command dial for aperture selection. With this point in mind, the G lenses omit the aperture ring, resulting in a lighter and more compact lens.
NOTE: G-type Nikkor lenses are fully compatible with the F5, F100, N80, N65, N60, N50, N4004-series, PRONEA 6i, PRONEA S, D100 and D1-series (or any newer model) cameras. They are not compatible with other Nikon cameras. For the F4, N90-series, N70, N8008-series and N6006 cameras, only programmed auto or shutter-priority auto exposure mode can be used.
