Product Overview: This item is
a 55-200mm, f4-5.6G ED (Extra-low Dispersion glass), AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor lens,
compatible with the Nikon DX formatted Digital SLR cameras (like the D-70). It
is an ideal 3.6x zoom lens for portraits, sports, or wildlife. The lens includes
a 52mm snap-on front lens cap (LC-52) a rear lens cap (LF-1), and a bayonet hood
(HB-34). Auto Focus - Silent Wave (AF-S) is a type of focusing motor used in a
number of AF-Nikkor lenses; the AF-S motor is very fast and quiet. AF-S lenses
also have an "A/M" mode selector which allows the user to switch from automatic
to manual focus with almost no lag time.
Silent Wave Motor (SWM): New
compact rod-type motor enables ultra-high speed autofocusing with exceptional
accuracy and super-quiet operation.
AF G-type lenses: Lenses that
use D-Type technology which provide the camera with precise distance
information for flash and ambient light exposure processes.
ED Glass Elements: There are
two of these elements which minimize color imperfections and achieve superior
Lenses: Lenses are coated
with Nikon Super Integrated Coating which minimizes ghosting affects and flare,
so that you can get even higher contrast and vivid images, even in challenging
Zoom Control: The lens features
a large, textured manual zoom ring for ultimate zooming control.
Auto/Manual Focus: Autofocus
operation is possible with select Nikon autofocus cameras (In this mode, the
manual ring will not work); Manual focus via the focus ring possible with all
Nikon SLR cameras. Note: Because there is no aperture ring on this lens,
the aperture must be set on the camera.
Diaphragm: The lens is equipped
with a fully-automatic, 9-bladed diaphragm that produces a nearly circular
aperture. Out-of-focus images in front of or behind the subject are rendered as
Bayonet Hood: The supplied
HB-34 bayonet hood extends approximately 1-3/4" beyond the front of the lens,
and shades the aperture opening from direct sunlight that causes flaring. When
not in use, the hood can be stored on the lens by mounting it in reverse
