AF Zoom-Nikkor 28-100mm f/3.5-5.6G lens is announced -
This new lens was developed as a standard zoom lens offering enhanced telephoto capabilities. The lens affords a greater degree of operational simplicity for Nikon users -- even first-time SLR users who want to be able to easily take high-quality pictures.
The AF Zoom-Nikkor 28-100mm f/3.5-5.6G is a compact, lightweight standard zoom lens featuring Nikons world-class optics, one aspherical lens element, high-grade Nikon Super Integrated Coating, and a rounded diaphragm opening that makes out-of-focus objects appear more natural.
This G-type Nikkor lens is designed with no aperture rings, and offers easier, virtually mistake-free operation because the aperture does not need to be set to minimum.

- 28-100mm G-type high-power zoom lens (no aperture ring); 42-150mm equivalent with D1-series and D100 digital SLR
