Super-telephoto 5.5x zoom lens covering 55-300mm focal range (angle of view is equivalent to a focal length of 82.5 to 450mm in FX/35mm format).
Vibration Reduction (VR) enables sharper pictures while shooting at shutter speeds up to 3.0 stops slower than would otherwise be possible.
Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements minimise chromatic aberration for superior picture quality.
High Refractive Index (HRI) lens achieves high specifications and optical performance.
