A world's first ultra wide-angle 16-35mm FX-format compatible zoom lens with built-in vibration reduction (VR II)
TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR, the world's first* ultra wide-angle 16-35mm FX-format compatible zoom lens with built-in vibration reduction (VR II).
The AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR is released as a new category of NIKKOR lenses. It is equipped with vibration reduction (VR II) offering camera shake compensation equivalent to a shutter speed increase of approximately four stops and a Silent Wave Motor (SWM), and supports the maximum aperture of f/4 through the full range of focal lengths. The lens also utilizes exclusive Nikon technologies such as the application of Nano Crystal Coat and construction that includes ED and aspherical lens elements. The extremely effective vibration reduction and coverage for wide angles of view make this lens perfect for sports, press and landscape photography.
Nikon's development of the FX format, currently consisting of D3-series and D700 digital-SLR cameras, has received tremendous support from professional and advanced amateur photographers. We intend to expand and strengthen the NIKKOR lineup with the steady release of new, high-performance lenses compatible with the FX format.
