About this item

5.5x Zoom
Auto or Manual Focus


This compact DX-format zoom lens with a High Refractive Index lens element, ED glass and VR II image stabilization expands photo and video opportunities. Ideal for capturing distant subjects at athletic events, family pictures, dramatic sunsets, travel and more, the 5.5x telephoto zoom lens has an angle of view equivalent to a focal length of 82.5 to 450mm in FX/35mm format D-SLR.

Nikon VR II Image Stabilization, or Vibration Reduction, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to four shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture. Tripod Detection Mode reduces vibration that may occur due to shutter release when mounted on a tripod.

The HRI (High Refractive Index) lens element is essential to keeping the lens compact while offering high contrast even at maximum aperture. Two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements effectively minimizes chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture settings. The exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate and quiet autofocus; Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduces flare; and the rounded 9-blade diaphragm renders a more natural appearance of out-of-focus image areas.
