Key Features

  • Ultrahigh 10.7x ratio zoom lens covering 28-300mm focal range with the maximum aperture of f/5.6 at telephoto end
  • Vibration Reduction (VR) provides the equivalent of a shutter speed approximately 3.5 stops* faster; two modes are available - Normal and Active
    • *Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when attached to an FX-format digital SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
  • Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass and three aspherical lens elements minimize lens aberrations for superior picture quality
  • Two focus modes selectable - M/A and M
  • Zoom lock is employed to stop the lens from sliding during transportation
