Features

The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR (5.3x) is a compact, 5.3x wide-angle-to-medium telephoto zoom, ideal for a broad range of shooting situations from interiors and landscapes to beautiful portraits. It features optical design for use with Nikon DX-format digital SLRs, Vibration Reduction (VRII) that minimizes the effects of camera shake, allowing handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements for sharpness and color correction by minimizing chromatic aberration, Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) that enables accurate, high-speed and quiet autofocus operation and three aspherical lens elements that eliminates coma and other types of lens aberration even when used at the widest aperture. It also features Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC) that offers color performance and substantially reduced ghosting and flare, close focusing distance to 1.3 feet throughout the entire zoom range, rounded 7-blade diaphragm for more natural appearance of out-of-focus image elements, and picture angle equivalent to focal length of 24-127.5mm (in 35mm format).
