Telephoto zoom is designed for DX-format Nikon F-mount cameras and provides an 82.5-450mm equivalent focal length.
One high refractive index element is used to reduce
spherical aberrations, field curvature, and distortion in order to
realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Two extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color
fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity
and color accuracy.
A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual
elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for
improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise
autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.
VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization helps to
minimize the appearance of camera shake by three stops to benefit
shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of
focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and
selective focus techniques.
