The Nikon AF-S VR Zoom-NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED Telephoto Zoom Lens is a high-power, high-performance 4.3x telephoto zoom with VR image stabilization lens allows better hand-held telephoto shooting ED glass. It has Vibration Reduction, a Silent Wave Motor for fast and quiet autofocus, 17 elements in 12 groups, ED lens elements, and is compatible with Nikon DX and FX format digital SLR cameras.
This lens incorporates Nikon's second-generation vibration reduction system (VR II) that allows flexible hand-held shooting by stabilizing the image to the equivalent extent of using a shutter speed that is four stops faster when compared with a conventional lens. The SWM (Silent Wave Motor) and IF (Internal Focusing) ensure fast and quiet focusing action, and the nine-blade rounded diaphragm makes out-of-focus elements blend smoothly to produce natural-looking, harmonious backgrounds.
High-power 4.3x Telephoto Zoom-Nikkor lens approximates the picture angle performance of a 105-450mm lens on 35mm SLR.
Two Nikon Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements deliver superior optical performance for both digital and 35mm photography. ED glass minimizes chromatic aberrations, contributing to superb contrast and resolution performance.
Focus as close as 4.9 ft throughout entire zoom range.
A Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast and quiet auto focusing, along with quick switching between auto focus and manual operation (M/A and M).
67mm filter attachment size.
Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture.
Internal Focus (IF) provides fast and quiet auto focusing without changing the length of the lens, retaining subject-working distance through the focus range.
Non-rotating front element provides for convenient use of circular polarizing filters and the Nikon Wireless Close-Up Speedlight System.
A nine-blade rounded diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural.

Man C. from NEW YORK, NY:
This is a great FX zoom lens that is far cheaper and lighter than a 70-200mm f/2.8. I bought it with a D600 during Xmas to enjoy $200 instant rebate so there is absolutely no complaint about this great bargain. The first lens I got had a problem with the motor but went back the store to switch it with another new one straight away. Fantastic after-sales service and support from Samy's in-store reps.
