Overview: This item is an AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm, f/2.8G ED,
wide angle to medium telephoto zoom lens, optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness
when using both the Nikon FX- (23.9 x 36mm) and DX- format image sensors.
Construction: The three Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements and
three aspherical lenses control chromatic aberrations while enhancing sharpness
and contrast even at the widest aperture settings. The exclusive Nano Crystal
Coating further reduces ghosting and flare for even greater image clarity.
Built-in CPU: The lens has a built-in CPU which allows it to
communicate with the camera body for focus and exposure functions. A set of CPU
contacts is located on the lens mount for interfacing with the camera body.
Auto Focus: Internal Focus (IF) provides fast and quiet
autofocusing without changing the length of the lens, retaining subject-working
distance through the focus range. Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables
ultra-high-speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and super-quiet
operation. The manual/auto focus mode switch allows quick response to situations
requiring manual focus operation.
Zoom Control: The lens features a large, textured manual zoom
ring for easy zooming control.
Aperture: 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-blade
diaphragm that produces a nearly circular aperture. Out-of-focus images in front of
or behind the subject are rendered as pleasing blurs.
Optional Accessories: Compatible optional accessories include
77mm screw-on filters; including circular polarizing filter.
Note: Teleconverter rings are not compatible with this
