Here's today's challenge: Shoot the entire plaza of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, complete with intricate architectural details and candid, "stealth" close-ups of the kids seeing one of the world's wonders for the first time. Or do the same with the Great Buddha of Kamakura. Stonehenge. Mount Rushmore. You get the picture.
... or do you? That kind of variety is a challenge for many lenses, but with this Nikkor 10-100mm lens on the front of your Nikon 1 Series camera, you'll be up to the task. This heavy-duty performer has a versatile zoom range (27-270mm 35mm equivalent) for solid performance at all lengths: extravagantly wide, perfect portrait, long-reach telephoto. If you're on the road in changing conditions (and when are they not, on the road?), you'll appreciate this compact marvel's ability to manage space while making the most of your available light.
The power zoom has 3 selectable speeds, for added versatility while shooting video. Don't worry about the zoom and focus motor sound bleeding into your soundtracks, as they're custom-engineered for quiet operation. Advanced VR II vibration reduction will minimize shimmies and blurring while adding extra-stop sensitivity in low-light, so that even your interior sightseeing will be crisply well-documented.
Nikkor lenses are so well-constructed that they carry a five-year warranty when sold by an authorized Nikon dealer and registered by the buyer. The precision optics, quality materials and workmanship, and overall ergonomic feel are sure to have a noticeable effect on every shot you take.
