  • The well-designed optical system achieves high-resolution images for any shooting scenes throughout the frame.
  • Axial chromatic aberration is effectively suppressed from close distances to infinity, via the employment of one aspherical ED glass and three ED glass elements.
  • The constant maximum aperture of f/4 enables free zooming, facilitating photo expression according to photographers' intentions for both stills and movies.
  • Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat effectively reduce ghost and flare, ensuring clear, sharp rendering even under backlit conditions.
  • Maximum reproduction ratio of 0.39x (at minimum focus distance of 0.35 m) enables users to enjoy impressive close-up shooting.
  • While covering a 120-mm focal length, longer than that of competitors' products, the lens body achieves the lightest weight* of approx. 630 g.
    1. *Among interchangeable zoom lenses for mirrorless digital cameras with interchangeable lenses equipped with a 35mm film size image sensor, with a focal-length range from 24 mm at the wide-angle end to 105-120 mm at the telephoto end, and a maximum aperture of f/4 or less, available as of October 28, 2021. Statement based on Nikon research.
  • A stepping motor (STM) is employed for quiet and responsive AF control.
  • The body is designed to achieve superior dust- and drip-resistant performance* for enhanced reliability.
    1. *Thorough dust- and drip-resistance is not guaranteed in all situations or under all conditions.
  • Impressive movie recording performance is realized by intensive consideration even of details such as focus breathing compensation and minimized operational sound.
