Overview: The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-120mm f/4G
ED VR lens is a compact and versatile 5x standard zoom lens with an f/4 maximum aperture.
It comes with a soft lens case and a bayonet lens hood.
Nano Crystal Coat: Nikon's Nano Crystal Coat further reduces
ghosting and internal flare across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater
Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements: The lens has two
Extra-low Dispersion elements for superior sharpness and color correction. ED
elements minimize chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture setting.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC): Nikon's Super
Integrated Coating (SIC) offers superior color performance and substantially
reduced ghosting and flare, by enhancing light transmission.
Silent Wave Motor (SWM): The exclusive Nikon Silent Wave
Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate, and quiet auto focus.
Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization: This
lens is equipped with Nikon's VR II (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization,
which uses voice coil motors to shift the lens. VRII enables hand-held shooting
at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible. You can turn
VR II on or off using the switch on the side of the lens. When switched on, you
can also select the VR mode as follows:
- Normal: The vibration reduction mechanism primarily reduces the
effects of camera shake in general, and while panning horizontally or
- Active: The effects of camera shake, such as that which occurs
when taking pictures from a moving vehicle.
Internal Focus: Internal Focus (IF) provides fast and quiet
autofocus without changing the length of the lens, retaining working distance
throughout the focus range.
Focus Mode Switch: The Focus Mode switch on the barrel of
the lens lets you easily switch between manual focus and auto focus. If you want
to enable auto focusing, the camera must be set to Auto Focus, and the switch on
the lens needs to be set to "M/A". With most Nikon D-SLRs, the lens gives you a
manual override option, allowing you to rotate the separate focus ring while
pressing the shutter release halfway.
Diaphragm: The lens is equipped with a rounded 9-blade
diaphragm, which renders a more natural appearance of out-of-focus image
Lens Hood: The lens comes with the HB-53 bayonet-type lens
hood. The hood adds approximately 1-1/2" to the overall length of the lens. You
can invert the hood and snap it onto the lens for storage, if desired.
