NikonNikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR : Nikon Europe is pleased to announce the introduction of the AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR with a totally new zoom range to the Nikkor line-up. Featuring almost 11x zoom ratio from 28mm to 300mm this versatile optic brings new levels of flexibility to FX format DSLR users. Zurab Kiknadze, Product Manager Lenses, Accessories and Software, Nikon Europe says: “We are really excited about this new, all-round lens in the Nikkor range. The Nikon DX format 18-200mm proved to be a massive success, and we are happy to introduce FX format customers to the same advantages this lens can offer.”

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR’s huge 10.7 zoom ratio makes it the ultimate ‘walkabout’ lens. With an impressive 28-300mm focal range it is set to become a very popular all-rounder for those seeking ultimate coverage from a single lens, useful when travelling light, or working from a fixed position. The flexible aperture range keeps the lens size and weight to a minimum while still providing attractive depth of field effects at the telephoto end.

Nikon 28-300mm features a Vibration Reduction system
Nikon’s exclusive second generation Vibration Reduction system (VRII) enables steady hand-held shooting at all focal lengths with two modes: Normal and Active. The optical VR system also stabilises the viewfinder image, enabling more accurate autofocus acquisition and framing, especially at the longer focal lengths of the 300mm zoom range, where lighter weight lenses can increase the risk of unwanted camera shake.

Nikon AF-S 28-300mm integrates a Silent Wave Motor
Despite the high zoom ratio, the new Nikon 28-300mm lens features two ED and three aspherical elements to effectively manage the risk of aberrations that can occur with super-zoom lenses. The lens can focus as close as 50cm at all focal lengths for added flexibility. The Silent Wave Motor (SWM) was designed specifically to deliver quiet and accurate AF operation across the extended zoom range with intuitive manual override. A zoom lock switch prevents ‘zoom creep’ (the lens moving under its own weight when tilted during transportation) and maintains compact dimensions when not in use. The lens construction features extensive use of magnesium for durability and provides well-balanced handling.

Complete with dedicated HB-50 hood and soft pouch, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR weighs in at an economical 800g. The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is available from September 2nd 2010 for an estimated retail price of €999,-.
