Key Features

  • Design enables a combination of wider angle-of-view with optical characteristics that are optimized for Nikon digital SLR camera sensors.
  • Nikon’s design produces a smaller image circle (the size of the image that is projected by the lens on to the sensor) enabling smaller lens diameter and optimal image quality from center-to-edge-to-corner on the image.
  • 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements for minimized chromatic aberration.
  • Internal Focusing (IF) design for smoother focusing and great body balance.
  • Nikon D-type design provides precise distance information for flash and ambient light exposure processes.
  • DX Nikkor is designed exclusively for use with Nikon digital SLR models.
  • 2x zoom ratio and variable angle-of-view from 99 degrees at 12mm to 61 degrees at 24mm, comparable to that of an 18-36mm lens on 35mm size sensor format.
  • Exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables ultra-high-speed auto focusing with exceptional accuracy and powerful super-quiet operation.
  • 3 aspherical lens elements for low distortion.
  • Manual/Auto mode enables instant switching from auto focus to manual with virtually no time lag even during AF servo operation.
  • Rounded diaphragm to make out-of-focus elements appear more natural.
  • 11.8 close focusing distance throughout zoom range.
