This premium Nikon lens delivers impressive wide-angle shooting throughout its zoom range on a full-frame camera such as the Nikon D700. Take expansive photos of ocean and beach scenes, or fit a large group of people into a single frame. On Nikon DX cameras like the D300s, which have smaller sensors, you'll also add "normal" focal lengths. They're ideal for capturing scenes the same way you see them with your own eyes. And a large maximum aperture throughout the focal range means you'll be able to capture well-exposed photos, even when shooting in lower light with slower shutter speeds.
Superior clarity from every photo
World-class Nikon optics ensure accurate, razor-sharp results. A multi-coating on the lens minimizes flare and ghosting. Your photos will be clear and detailed across the entire field of view from one edge to the other thanks to two ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) glass elements and three aspherical lens elements. And Nikon's built-in Silent Wave Motor makes autofocus very fast and nearly silent. You'll be able to quickly focus on your subject and snap images of candid moments.
Compensates for hand-held shooting
The lens has built-in vibration reduction so your photos will come out crisp in all different sorts of lighting conditions. Built-in motion sensors steer a special set of optical elements inside the lens, neatly compensating for camera movement and stabilizing the image. You get much sharper pictures even in low-light conditions where slower shutter speeds and hand motion can easily cause blurred images with a regular lens.
