Nikon have announced the introduction of a new lens, the AF Zoom-Nikkor 28-100mm f/3.5-5.6G.

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.

Note: G-type Nikkor lens is fully compatible with the F5, F100, F80, F65, F55, D1-series and D100 cameras.

AF Zoom-Nikkor 28-100mm f/3.5-5.6G Major Features
  • 28-100mm G-type high-power zoom lens (no aperture ring); 42-150mm equivalent with D1-series and D100 digital SLR
  • The aspherical lens element minimizes distortion, especially at the periphery area, for superior optical performance
  • The rounded diaphragm opening (7 blades) makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural
  • High-grade Nikon Super Integrated Coating offers superior color reproduction, while minimizing ghost and flare
  • Distance information is transmitted to the camera body for precise exposure control
  • Ultra-compact and 245g light
  • Affordably priced
