Via the adoption of a PF (Phase Fresnel) lens element, an outstandingly compact and lightweight body is realized for agile shooting.
The latest optical design delivers high resolution optimized for high-megapixel digital cameras, minimizing color fringing via effective chromatic aberration compensation. Also, by adopting newly developed lens materials, flare effect due to the characteristics of the PF lens is optimally controlled. As a result, light sources can be reproduced in near-original colors.
Nano Crystal Coat that provides superb ghost and flare reduction even under harsh lighting such as backlight, as well as other Nikon coating technologies contribute to producing clearer images.
By employing a lighter focus lens group, higher AF speed is achieved, assuring superb subject-tracking performance.
The lens body was designed carefully considering dust- and drip-resistant performance for enhanced reliability, while Nikon's original fluorine coat is applied to the front lens surface to ensure high antifouling performance.
Even during high-speed continuous shooting, exposure is stably controlled with the adoption of an electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism.
