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
Get up close and personal to inje ct panache to your sports photography using the 30-110mm lens. 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. Even at the most extended magnification, photos are rendered crystal clear and sharp, making the 30-110mm a perfect option for fast moving subjects from afar.

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.

Looks and operates like new

I will carry it every time i go downtown/biking because it is small and lightweight. Although i havent been outside to take photos, i am thinking it will live up to NIKON name. What I did not notice: There is no viewfinder. I cant believe i paid that much for camera and lens that did not design a viewfinder. even cheap cameras have a viewfinder

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.


love this lens


from Sacramento CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

gets me great close-up portraits-like the added range of shots this lens allows.


Very Sharp


from Mesa AZ  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I like the look of the red lens on the black J1 body. I have used it at a gymnastics practice and was pleased with the shapness. The 300 mm lens equivalent in a small light weight package is impressive.




from Heath, Texas  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I had bought this lens to supplement the wide-angle zoom that came with the V1; it is a perfect complement to the supplied lens. It appeared to be brand-new; no one would have suspected it was refurbished. Perfect!


Cool lens at a great price!


from Columbus OH  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I just got this lens as a gift after getting a red J1 refurbished. Seems like there is controversy over the 1 system - here's my take... Take the time to learn how to use the camera! Seems common sense I know, but understanding how to get to the right settings quickly could change ones perception of a product. I've used this lens for both static landscapes and moving objects (kids). I've been very pleased with the results. Focus is fast and quiet- and the lens is compact but feels well constructed. That being said my point of comparison is a Nikon D600 with a Nikon 70-300 VR. Better setup? Perhaps - but much heavier and bulky when out and about wrangling kids. If you don't get tied down in comparisons I believe you will find this lens to be a worthy addition to your camera bag.


Great Buy!


from Long Island, NY  -  Professional

I hardly ever write a review but I found this site after searching for this lens in red & could not find it through any regular camera dealers or on Nikon. Came packaged great, no problems at all and saved a few hundred dollars! I will come to this site again for future purchases.


I would buy this lens again and again!


from Russellville, AL  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

My husband gave me the Nikon J1 camera for Christmas last year, and I love it! Our children are very involved in sports and school activities, and I need a low-light camera with a great lens for "far away" shots. This lens is great! I highly recommend it. My husband was worried about purchasing a refurbished lens, but it looked and operated like new!


excellent! shipped fast


from kalkaska, MI  -  Casual user

works perfect! even though it was refurbished it looksbrand new!


very nice lens


from Danbury, CT  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Still getting the hang of the Nikon 1 lenses; you can read in the printed documentation that the camera has a "2.7 crop factor" so in theory this 30-110 lens should shoot like a big, heavy 90-300 lens for a 35mm film camera; but it sure doesn't look like a traditional 300mm lens. Ultimately, it sort of actually does work like a 90-300; but I'm not a serious pro; 99% of my shots are ad hoc, I don't walk around with a tape measure and a light meter setting up shots, everything is by feel, and the Nikon 1 and this lens "feel" very different. Better, nicer, amazing, terrific; but the feel is definitely different, especially with the longer lenses. I still find myself mis-planning; when I think the 30-110 will be fine for a shot or series of shots because it's just such a small, light lens; but then later I need to pop a smaller lens back on, or I may need to take a number of paces backwards to frame the shot I saw in mind. A little weird, not the lens's fault... it's only taking pictures where I point it. This should not stop you from buying this lens; if you can afford it, do. Technically, for real world use, the lens is essentially flawless and amazing. If you're just shooting pictures, you probably would need to be going out of your way to find the slightest imperfection with this lens mounted on the 10 mega pixel Nikon 1.
