42x optical zoom and highly advanced VR image stabilization
A 16.1 megapixel Back-illuminated CMOS image sensor is paired with a 42x zoom NIKKOR ED glass lens that covers the phenomenal focal range of 24 mm wide-angle to 1000 mm super-telephoto*. Newly advanced Lens-shift VR image stabilization compensates more effectively than ever** for camera shake. This serves as a big aid in achieving consistently sharp results, particularly when taking advantage of the super-zoom or shooting macros.
