Nikon Releases AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm f/3.5/4.5G ED VR

Together with the new super-zoom Nikkor 18-300mm that was announced 2 weeks ago, Nikon also launched AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm f/3.5/4.5G ED VR in the market.

This piece of glass is the new FX-format zoom lens with a focal range of 24-85mm and the Vibration Reduction technology. The VR technology allows photographer with sharper images across zoom range and greatly reduces blur when shooting at the end of the zoom range. Here are the details for this lens.

  • FX-format compatible, 3.5x standard zoom lens covering frequently used focal-length range from 24 to 85 mm
  • VR (Vibration Reduction) minimizes camera shake by offering the equivalent of a shutter speed approximately four stops faster
  • Nikon Super Integrated Coating offers superb color reproduction
  • Silent Wave Motor (SWM) realizes quiet AF operation
  • Two focus modes are available – M/A (auto focus with manual override) and M (manual focus)
  • Lens construction: 16 elements in 11 groups (including 1 ED glass and 3 aspherical lens elements)
  • 7 rounded diaphragm blades
  • Diameter x length: Approximately 78 x 82 mm/3.1 x 3.2 in.
  • Weight: Approximately 485 g/17.1 oz
  • Comes with a lens case CL-1118 and hood HB-63.

This lens will be available by June 28 and hopefully in the local market within August. If you want this one, it will costs you around USD 800 or PHP 34,000.
