It offers Nikon’s Nano Crystal Coat to reduce ghost and flare, delivering what the company calls stunning sharpness and versatility for both photos and HD video.
The lens features 11 optical elements in nine groups with two aspherical elements.
There are two focus modes, manual (M) and autofocus with manual override (M/A).
The lens is equipped with a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
