Stunning Performance. Newfound Inspiration


”Nikon The classic standard zoom now offers Vibration Reduction image stabilization (VR), Nikon's 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR Lens is a truly all around wide-angle to short telephoto lens symbolized by a fixed f/2.8 maximum aperture and electromagnetic aperture device. A revised optical layout incorporates a discriminating aspherical extra-low dispersion lens element, and additionally three aspherical, two of them extra-low dispersion, and one high refractive index element, to help diminish chromatic aberrations and distortions through the entire zoom range as a way to achieve lofty image sharpness and clarity. The Super Integrated Coatings and Nano Crystal Coat further assist image quality by diminishing lens flare for enhanced contrast and color preciseness while fluorine coatings on the front and back elements protect against dust, moisture, and smudging.

Augmenting the imaging capabilities, the Silent Wave Motor AF system delivers fast, quiet focusing performance that's ideal for both stills shooting and movie capture which can instantly become overridden manually by a simple twist of a manual focus ring. Further conductive to photographing in fast-paced environments and challenging lighting, Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization adjusts for the results of camera shake by as much as to four shutter speed stops. In addition, an electromagnetic aperture device is built into the lens design to deliver increased exposure control stability that is especially advantageous when working with faster continuous shooting rates.

Engineered to complement FX image sensors, this lens also works with DX sensors where it will deliver a 36-105mm equivalent focal length aspect.

A standard zoom lens which handles wide-angle to short telephoto focal lengths to handle shooting in a wide variety of situations.

Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture offers consistent performance throughout the zoom range and also benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and using selective focus techniques. √
