Overview

Ideal for photographers seeking an FX-format compatible standard zoom lens, the new AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR lens delivers sharp, crisp and high-quality images, and can be assigned as an everyday walkabout lens. Covering the frequently used focal-length range of 24mm to 85mm, this lens is a great companion for any FX-format shooter and is ideal for shooting stills of landscapes, architecture, head-and-shoulder portraits, candid shots of people or group shots. For HD-video shooters, the 24-85mm VR lens is a natural choice when filming landscapes, large groups of people or when wide-field establishing shots or medium close-ups are needed. The 24-85mm lens is a great everyday lens that is compact, lightweight and easy to carry on any photo assignment or family adventure.

In addition to the built-in Vibration Reduction (VR) technology, the AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR lens features Auto Tripod detection which recognizes when the camera is mounted on a tripod, even during HD video recording, to help deliver specialized VR correction. The lens construction of the 24-85mm VR lens consists of 16 optical elements in 11 groups with one Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element, three aspherical lens elements and a seven-rounded blade diaphragm.

Three Aspherical Lens Elements

This is another unique Nikon innovation, which virtually eliminates coma and other types of aberration, further improving image integrity.

One Extra-low Dispersion (ED) Element

A single ED element offers superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration - even at the widest aperture settings.

Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC)

Nikon's Super Integrated Coating enhances light transmission and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare.

M/A (Manual/Auto) Focus Mode Switch

This NIKKOR lens features a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens.

Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM)

A significant innovation in AF lens technology, Nikon's Silent Wave Motor uses ultrasonic (inaudible) vibrations-rather than a gear system-to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.

Superior Close Focus

With a superior close range focus, you'll be able to focus to 1.25 feet at every focal length.

Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization

Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization, which is tailored to each lens, enables handheld shooting at up to four 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.

Internal Focusing

All internal optical movement is limited to the interior of the non-extending lens barrel, which allows for a more compact, lightweight construction - as well as a closer focusing distance.

Rounded 7-Blade Diaphragm

The rounded 7-blade diaphragm renders a beautiful, natural background blur (Bokeh) at its wider aperture settings.
