Nikon 24-85mm Features

  • 3 Aspherical Lens Elements: Another unique Nikon innovation, virtually eliminates coma and other types of aberration, further improving image integrity.
  • 1 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Element: Offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture settings.
  • Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization: Tailored to each lens, Nikon's second generation Vibration Reduction technology (VR II) enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible for dramatically sharper images and HD videos, even in low light.
  • Auto Tripod Detection: Nikon's Vibration Reduction image stabilization system recognizes when the camera is mounted on a tripod and provides precise shutter vibration correction.
  • Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC): Enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency along with significantly reduced lens flare and ghosting.
  • M/A Focus Mode Switch: When fine manual focusing is needed, simply rotate the lens focus ring - M/A mode allows you to seamlessly override the AF system with virtually no time lag.
  • Internal Focusing: All internal optical movement is limited to the interior lens barrel, allowing for a more compact, lightweight construction, less lens movement as well as remarkably close minimum focusing distances.
  • Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM): Nikon's Silent Wave Motor uses ultrasonic (inaudible) vibrations, rather than a gear system, to focus the lens, providing incredibly fast, smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
  • Rounded 7-Blade Diaphragm: Renders more natural background blur (Bokeh).
