Accompanying its robust zoom range, the new lens features 5.0 stops of  image stabilization so you can shoot handheld, even in low-light scenarios, without sacrificing sharpness. A customizable control ring provides a quick and direct means of adjusting focusing, aperture, ISO, or exposure compensation on-lens. With a minimum focusing distance of 7.9" (when shooting wide), you can get up-close and personal for creative wide-angle images. AF powered by a stepping motor offers quiet and responsive performance when capturing video. Finally, the new lens is compatible with FX and DX (27-210mm equivalent zoom) Nikon Z series cameras, making it an excellent “bridge” lens for everyday carry.
