Full frame sized image

Lenses that create APS-C sized image are designed for digital only. They cannot be used on cameras that have image sensor larger than the APS-C format. These lenses are not suitable for film cameras either.


Ultrasonic AF

Lenses with ultrasonic focusing mechanism tend to be quiter and faster than traditionally focusing lenses.


No stepping motor AF

Lenses with stepping motor focusing mechanism are better for contrast based focusing, and are quiter and faster than traditionally focusing lenses.


One or more Low Dispersion lens element is used

Low Dispersion lens elements help to reduce chromatic aberration.


Built-in image stabilizer

Image stabilization helps to reduce blur caused by hand shake, especially at high focal length or in low light situations. Image stabilization can give 1 to 3 stop advantage over none stabilized lens, based on the reciprocal rule.


Metal mount

Cheaper lenses are usually equipped with plastic mount, while more expensive, professional lenses have metal mount. In general, metal mounts are more durable, and a good thing to have when lenses are changed a lot. When a camera is used mainly with one lens, the material of the lens mount is not that important.


Internal Focusing

Internally focusing lenses don't change their size while setting focus.


The front lens is fixed

The fixed front lens is not rotating during zoom and/or focusing. This allows the photographer to use petal shaped lens hood. Fixed front lenses also make the use of polarization filters a lot easier.


Weather Sealed

Weather sealed lenses are protected from dust and water. While they are not water proof, these lenses can be used in rain and other humid environments. Some sealings only provide protection against dust or water, not both. Sealing is only available when the lens is used on a similarly weather sealed camera body.

Exclusive Silent Wave Motor for ultra-high-speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and super-quiet operation. VR permits shooting at shutter speed 3 f/stops slower than otherwise possible without camera vibrations blurring your image. Sharp images easier in low light and slower shutter speeds. Normal VR for most hand-holdable applications. Active VR for extreme vibrations, as when shooting from a helicopter. Panning automatically detected and compensated by VR. 5 ED-glass elements for superior optical performance, evet at maximum aperture. Fully compatible with Nikon TC-14E II, TC-17E II, and TC-20E II Teleconverters.
