NikonNikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR : Nikon Europe announces a new super telephoto zoom lens - the AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR. With a focal length ranging from 55mm to 300mm (equivalent to 82.5mm to 450mm on DX format D-SLRs) it enables the user to really get up close and personal with distant subjects. The 5.5 times zoom ratio offers flexibility by drastically extending the telephoto reach. With 300mm (450mm on DX format cameras) at the telephoto end, this lens leads the way in affordable and portable telephoto photography, ideal for family sport events and holidays.

Zurab Kiknadze, Product Manager Lenses, Accessories & Software, Nikon Europe BV, says: "The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR is a really useful and economical second lens alongside today’s standard 18-55mm kit lenses, enabling coverage of all subjects both near and far. The compact dimensions and lightweight construction make it an ideal choice for the compact D-SLR customer."

Nikon 55-300mm lens delivers sharp images
Incorporating the latest VR II (second generation Vibration Reduction) technology, the lens delivers sharper images when the camera is hand-held. This is especially useful when using slower shutter speeds at longer focal lengths, or when shooting in low light. The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR incorporates Nikon’s SWM (Silent Wave Motor). This ensures that the autofocus is fast and quiet so you don’t miss that crucial moment, nor draw attention to yourself in more private settings.

The lens has a weather sealed mount, which means you can take it anywhere, without having to worry about moisture and dust infiltrating the lens or camera sensor.
