Nikon's new AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5–4.5G ED VR is an FX-format zoom lens with a broad 24-85mm focal range, compact build and Vibration Reduction.
The lightweight Nikkor 24–85mm f/3.5–4.5G ED VR lens comes with a lens case (CL-1118), hood (HB-63) and will be available on 28 June 2012 with an RRP of £519.99.
Hiro Sebata, Product Manager, Professional products at Nikon UK, said: "The new 24-85mm is a high quality, versatile lens that is ideal for a variety of shooting scenarios; from portrait to landscape to low light situations. With a compact build, this new lens perfectly complements Nikon’s FX format bodies to produce stunning results."
From Nikon UK:
Multi-TaskerDeveloped to be especially compact for an FX-format zoom lens, this 24-85mm NIKKOR is ideal for people who want a lens that offers the freedom to shoot a wide variety of day-to-day moments and subjects. The versatile 24-85mm range covers most commonly used focal lengths with ease: from landscapes to portraits, you can go fairly wide or zoom into distant objects without needing to change lenses.
Sharp And SteadyComplementing the versatile focal range is Nikon’s second-generation Vibration Reduction technology (VRII) — that allows substantially sharper handheld images across the zoom range and dramatically reduces image blur, especially when shooting towards the telephoto end of the range. VRII also enables you to shoot using shutter speeds up to four stops slower, enabling you to shoot more effectively when shooting in low light.
Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating ensures superb colour reproduction, while Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass and three aspherical lens elements help deliver stunning sharpness and contrast, even at maximum aperture.
Good To GoWell-balanced in terms of size, weight, price and image quality — and boasting a weather-sealed mount — this lens offers a worthwhile combination of precision NIKKOR optics, broad focal range and lightweight build for people on the go.
