It offers a 4.3x zoom with a focal length range of 70-300mm and a 35mm equivalency of 105-450mm when used on DX-format DSLRs. With two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and Super Integrated Lens Coating to minimize ghosting and flare, the optical performance of this wide-ranging telephoto zoom is up to the task of wildlife, travel, well-lit sports and general photography applications.
Incorporating Nikon's second-generation Vibration Reduction (VR II) system enables flexible hand-held shooting by stabilizing the image to compensate for the blur caused by camera shake. This provides the equivalence of 2.5 shutter speed stops to help in capturing sharper images in low light or at extended zoom lengths. The Silent Wave Motor and Internal Focusing system provide fast and quiet auto focusing action, and the nine-blade rounded diaphragm makes out-of-focus elements blend smoothly to produce natural-looking, harmonious backgrounds
This Nikkor has a variable maximum aperture that ranges from f/4 at 70mm to f/5.6 at 300mm. Focusing can be as close as 5 feet (1.5) at any zoom setting; there is no macro mode. The front element rotates during focus (and less so during zooming), making use of a polarizer a bit of a chore. The D in the name means that focus distance is used in flash metering calculations by the camera. The ED indicates that twoof the elements are made of Nikon's unique extra-low dispersion glass, which helps focus color information at the same plane, especially at longer focal lengths. As with all ED lenses, the lens focuses past infinity under normal temperature conditions.
