The Nikon AF-S 17-55mm f/2.8G ED-IF DX Lens is the world's first constant f/2.8 3.2x zoom lens developed exclusively for use with Nikon DX Format.

The 3.2x zoom covers from a wide angle of 79 degrees to a narrow angle of 28 degrees 50 minutes (equivalent to 25.5mm to 85.5mm for 35mm format) and is ideal for architecture, landscape, groups shots and portraits. DX design enables a combination of wider angle-of-view with optical characteristics that are optimized for Nikon digital SLR camera sensors. Nikon DX design produces a smaller image circle (the size of the image that is projected by the lens on to the sensor) enabling smaller lens diameter, lighter weight, and optimal image quality from center-to edge-to-corner on the image.

  • Fast, ultra-wideangle zoom lens with Silent Wave Motor
  • Three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements minimize chromatic aberration, provide higher resolution and superior contrast
  • Three aspherical lens elements minimize distortion, especially at the periphery, for superior optical performance
  • "SWM" (Silent Wave Motor) for swift autofocusing with superior accuracy and ultra-quiet operation
  • The rounded diaphragm opening (7 blades) makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural
  • M/A mode allows rapid switching between autofocus and manual even during AF servo operation, with virtually no time lag
  • Internal Focusing (IF) design for smoother focusing and great body balance

Note! DX lenses are NOT recommended for use with 35mm, digital "full-frame" FX, or APS SLR cameras
