Bright f/2.0 - 4.0 lens for brilliant quality images
The NIKKOR lens maintains high brightness throughout the 7.1x zoom range for superior low-light performance. Quality optics using ED glass faithfully capture even the "atmosphere" of any scene and contribute to an overall improvement in resolution. The seven-blade iris diaphragm enables beautifully de-focused backgrounds. Lens-shift VR image stabilization provides effective compensation for camera shake equivalent to a shutter speed increase of approximately four stops. And there is a built-in ND filter that enables a three-stop decrease in shutter speed, helping enhance image quality in a variety of scenes.
