  • Compact and light body is achieved while featuring high-power 16.7x zoom capability
  • Vibration Reduction (VR) provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster*
    • *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.
  • DX-format compatible, high-power 16.7x zoom lens covering a focal-length range from 18 to 300 mm (angle of view is equivalent to that of a lens with a focal length of 27 to 450 mm in FX/35mm format)
  • High optical performance is realized with the employment of three ED glass and three aspherical lens elements
