  • Covering a focal-length range of 18 to 140 mm*, it is convenient for capturing a wide variety of subjects, from landscapes to portraits, for both stills and videos.
    • *Angle of view is equivalent to that of a 27-210 mm lens in FX/35mm format.
  • A compact and lightweight body with a total length of approx. 90 mm and weight of approx. 315 g.
  • The short minimum focus distance of 0.2 m/0.66 ft at the maximum wide-angle position is ideal for close-up shots.
  • The maximum reproduction ratio of 0.33x at the maximum telephoto position enables rendering of subjects in large size.
  • Equipped with an optical vibration reduction (VR) mechanism that provides camera shake compensation equivalent to a 5.0-stop* increase in shutter speed.
    • *Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when attached to a DX-format camera with the camera's VR function set to "NORMAL", and when zoom is set to the maximum telephoto position.
  • High resolution is achieved consistently across the entire zoom range, from maximum aperture.
  • Outstanding movie performance is attained via the adoption of a variety of features such as quiet operation, focus-breathing reduction and superior subject tracking.
  • Selected functions can be assigned to the control ring for comfortable shooting of stills and videos.
  • Fast, precise and quiet AF operation is attained with the employment of an STM (stepping motor).
  • Designed with consideration for dust- and drip-resistant performance*, enabling users to take it anywhere with greater confidence.
    • *Thorough dust- and drip-resistance is not guaranteed in all situations or under all conditions.
