The world’s lightest*1 5x normal zoom lens compatible with the Nikon DX format

TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR, a 5x normal zoom lens compatible with Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras.

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR is a fast, 5x normal zoom lens that supports angles of view for focal lengths of 16-80mm (effective angles of view equivalent to those of a lens with 24-120mm focal lengths in FX-format/35mm [135] format), as well as a maximum aperture of f/2.8 at the maximum wide-angle position.

It is the world’s lightest*1 lens, combining superior performance with excellent portability, further maximizing the agility of Nikon’s DX-format digital SLR camera system. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 16-80mm f/2.8-4E ED VR is a high-performance lens that boasts superior optical performance and Nikon’s exclusive technologies. In addition to a built-in VR mechanism that enables nimble, yet full-scale hand-held shooting with vibration reduction compensation equal to a 4.0-stop*2 increase in shutter speed, it is the first lens compatible with DX-format digital SLR cameras to be equipped with a built-in electromagnetic diaphragm, and for which Nano Crystal Coat and fluorine coat have been adopted.

The latest optical design and fast maximum aperture respond to the vigorous photographic needs of professional and advanced amateur photographers by enabling capture of a wide variety of scenes, beginning with true wide-angle photography.
