Stable.
Zooms at your selected speed through the entire sequence.
 
Silent.
All zooming occurs internally with a linear drive.
 
VR image stabilization keeps shots steady.
4.5 stops of built-in optical VR (Vibration Reduction) counteracts shakiness for steadier videos, sharper photos and better low-light performance.
 
Close focusing.
Get as close as 11 inches from the lens and capture the fine details of jewelry, food, crafts, makeup—whatever you hold up to the camera.

Technology
 
Internal Zoom Mechanism
With the internal zoom mechanism, the total length of the lens barrel is fixed. This keeps the lens’ center of gravity almost constant even during zooming.

Power Zoom
The power zoom* has been designed in pursuit of light and responsive operational feel. This function achieves smooth zooming at a constant speed and various options for zoom operation including via remote-control capabilities. That ensures comfortable photo shooting and video recording.
*With some cameras, this function is supported only via firmware update.

Aspherical Lens
A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the centre of the lens.

Vibration Reduction
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.

ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
 
IF Lens
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
 
Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism
An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting.
