  • Adoption of the large-diameter Z mount has enabled a dramatic increase in optical performance compared to the existing F-mount model.
  • Balances high resolution from close to far focus distances and beautiful bokeh achieved with thorough suppression of color bleed and fringing.
  • Chromatic aberration is thoroughly suppressed through the optics for which one aspherical lens element and three ED glass elements have been adopted, as well as by the adoption of a multi-focusing system.
  • Shooting is possible for a wide variety of scenes, including landscapes and portraits, maximizing the medium-telephoto focal length and superior resolution; not just macro photography.
  • Equipped with a highly effective 4.5-stop optical vibration reduction (VR) function.
  • Ghost and flare are effectively reduced by utilizing Nikon's exclusive Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat
  • Extremely fast and precise AF control is achieved by using a newly developed stepping motor (STM) and multi-focusing system.
  • Equipped with a focus range limiter that reduces focusing time with closeup shooting by limiting the focus range.
  • Equipped with an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism that enables highly accurate aperture control; improvements to MF operability allow users to focus as intended.
  • Realizes high dust- and drip-resistance*, superior reliability that comes from strength, durability and weather resistance, and excellent antifouling performance achieved with the adoption of a fluorine coat.
    • *Thorough dust- and drip-resistance is not guaranteed in all situations or under all conditions.
  • Approximately 16% lighter than the existing F-mount model.
  • Responds to video recording needs by achieving smooth changes in brightness, enabling the recording of natural footage.
  • Equipped with a control ring to which functions such as aperture or exposure compensation can be assigned.
