Compact DX-format zoom lens with High Refractive Index lens element, ED glass and VR II image stabilization
Expanded photo and video opportunities that are designed to bring the action closer to the photographer.
Nikon VR II Image Stabilization
Vibration Reduction, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables hand-held shooting at up to four shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture.
HRI (High Refractive Index) Lens Element
HRI lens element is essential to keeping the lens compact while offering high contrast even at maximum aperture.
Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM)
Enables fast, accurate and quiet auto-focus.

Ideal for capturing distant subjects at athletic events, family pictures, dramatic sunsets, travel and more. Angle of view is equivalent to a focal length of 82.5 to 450mm in FX/35mm format D-SLR.
Tripod Detection Mode
Reduces vibration that may occur due to shutter release when mounted on a tripod.
Two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Elements
Effectively minimizes chromatic aberration, even at the widest aperture settings.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC)
Enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduces flare.
Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm
