Key Features

  • Super-telephoto 5.5x zoom lens covering 55-300mm focal range (angle of view is equivalent to a focal length of 82.5 to 450mm in FX/35mm format)
  • Vibration Reduction (VR) enables sharper pictures while shooting at shutter speeds up to 3.0 stops* slower than would otherwise be possible
    • *Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
  • Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements minimize chromatic aberration for superior picture quality
  • High Refractive Index (HRI) lens achieves high specifications and optical performance
