Compact telephoto captures wide range of scenes
Work with superior zoom coverage and capture high caliber images that run the gamut, from sports action shot from the bleachers, to the most subtle gradations of hair blowing in the wind. Extend your reach with the 30-110mm (picture angle equivalent of an 81-297mm in 35mm format), and isolate subjects from their backgrounds with clarity. IF (Internal Focusing) maintains compactness of size even when using the zoom.

Portraits with impact
Beautiful portraits focus on the person

A perfect compliment to the 10-30mm, the 30-110mm takes portraiture a step farther. Stunning portraits with soft focus background effects are yours. Compact and easy to carry, realize the most subtle expressions and minute details. 1 NIKKOR lens precision offers superior sharpness and color correction even at the widest aperture. Because portraits are usually taken spur of the moment, there is vibration reduction (VR II) to keep images blur-free.

Focus on the action
Get in close even from afar

Equipped with vibration reduction (VR II), this lens separates subjects from their backgrounds making it a great choice for honing in on subjects and create photos that are visually vibrant and perfect to upload to your blog or social media sites.

Beautiful landscape images come to life
Wide depth of field surrenders dazzling views

Work with extended zoom range using the 30-110mm and produce sweeping looks that express your world. Subjects that need to be isolated from their backgrounds, such as a boat at sail, are easy with this lens. Equipped with vibration reduction (VR II) up to four stops, you'll nab every precise color detail seen with dramatic sunsets.

Vibration Reduction
This innovative VR system minimizes image blur caused by camera shake, and offers the equivalent of shooting at a shutter speed three stops (eight times) faster.** It allows handheld shooting at dusk, at night, and even in poorly lit interiors. The lens' VR system also detects automatically when the photographer pans - no special mode is required.

Extra-low Dispersion Glass
Nikon developed ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass to enable the production of lenses that offer superior sharpness and color correction by minimizing chromatic aberration. ED glass offers all the benefits, yet none of the drawbacks of calcium fluorite-basedglass. With this innovation, Nikon developed several types of ED glass suitable for various lenses.

Nikon Super Integrated Coating
To enhance the performance of its optical lens elements, Nikon employs an exclusive multilayer lens coating that helps reduce ghost and flare to a negligible level. Nikon Super Integrated Coating achieves a number of objectives, including minimized reflection in the wider wavelength range and superior color balance and reproduction.

Internal Focusing
Imagine being able to focus a lens without it changing in size. Nikon's IF technology enables just that. All internal optical movement is limited to the interior of the nonextending lens barrel. This allows for a more compact, lightweight construction as well as a closer focusing distance.

Good all purpose lens

This is a good lens with some reach. Works great for outdoor/nature photography. I have only owned it a short while, but so far the shots have come out crisp with excellent color. It is a great carry around lens.

Not a 'long shot'


from Titusville, Florida  -  Quality Oriented

Fantastic lens at a fantastic price! My husband is my 'researcher' and found Adorama to have the best price on the internet or stores for this lens. It is easy to attach to the camera body, easy to operate and I get wonderful pictures 'up close'. It will be a blessing at my daughter's graduation in May. The only drawback is that I have a beige camera and the lens didn't come in beige but the white isn't a problem, you barely notice the body and lens aren't the same color.

Greaty Lense for the Size Product!


from Durango, CO  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Quick, easy and compact ... grab and use in an instant! With the existing application (Nikon J1), one can see the picture framed on the display of the camera, and have a fair idea of the outcome.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DAVID S  For use on Nikon V1; effective 81mm to 287mm; compatible with V1s auto focus, auto exposure, video focus tracking; small, light.
rudy f  Is this lens fits to my Nikon D3100?
JAMES Y  Rudy, it is my understanding that it will not fit on your D3100. The mount size is much smaller. Jim
Susan M  Will this lens be useful on a Nikon D90 AF-S for a wedding I have been asked to do?
DAN W  Sorry, no. The Nikkor 30-110mm you are referring to only fits the Cx mount used by the Nikon 1 camera and I know of no adapters yet to fit it to a Dx mount such as the one on a D90 camera body. Eventually, Nikon is supposed to have an adapter (called FT1) that goes the other way-- to put Dx and Fx lenses on the Nikon 1 body. Dan
Susan M  thank you Dan, great help and much appreciated. Susan
