In Pursuit of Ultimate Image Quality
A first for NIKKOR lenses, a new Aspherical Extra-Low Dispersion (ASP/ED) element is paired with traditional AS, ED and HRI elements for a thrilling new level of optical precision. Photos and videos take on a beautiful balance of sharpness and soft blur effects, virtually free of flare, ghosting, coma, chromatic or spherical aberration, even at the far edges of the frame. For those who thrive on image quality, the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR delivers.
Versatility, Speed and Durability
24-70mm is the sweet spot of the zoom range for many photographers, great for everything from landscapes and studio work to weddings and press events. The f/2.8 constant aperture allows for faster shutter speeds to freeze fast action, renders a beautiful bokeh blur and performs brilliantly in low light. Add an electromagnetic diaphragm for fast auto-exposure control plus the protection of Nikon’s fluorine coat on the front and rear glass, and you’ve got the ultimate workhorse for nearly any situation.
Steadier than Ever
To complete the evolution, the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR also includes Nikon’s Vibration Reduction image stabilization technology. It reduces camera shake and vibration up to ~4.0 stops*. Capture sharp, steady handheld stills and HD videos, and shoot at slower shutter speeds in low-light situations without sacrificing sharpness. Versatility, enhanced.
Capture the Shot Regardless of Environment
With a highly durable build quality designed to withstand the severest shooting environments, Fluorine coatings on the front and rear elements for easy cleaning, a rear rubber gasket to help keep moisture out, the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR is ready for your toughest assignments.
