Dramatically Sharper Images
Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) image stabilization minimises camera shake by offering the equivalent of a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster when shooting hand held. When the sun sets, slow down the shutter speed to capture as much natural light as possible, without sacrificing sharpness.
Built with the best optical design and lens technology, the AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR will bring out the best in your DSLR. The Silent Wave Motor (SWM) delivers quick and accurate autofocusing while the Extra-low Dispersion Glass Element (ED) and Aspherical Lens Element Design (AS) reduce aberrations to provide unwavering image quality, shot after shot.
