Nikon designed this lens for premium optical performance with their DX SLR cameras, like the D90 or D300. It features a focal range that's ideal for capturing wide-angle and everyday shots. 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. Snap crystal clear outdoor photos that showcase the detailed colors of a sunset background as well as the textures of plant life in the foreground. Then take your camera indoors and shoot group photos of your favorite people without using a flash.
Superior Nikon performance
High-quality 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 three 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.
