Manufacturer's Description:



"The new high-power zoom DX-Nikkor lens boasts a focal length range of 16 to 85mm, which makes it ideal for a broad range of shooting situations, including parties and other indoor events as well as building, portrait and scenery shots. When mounted on any DX-format Nikon digital SLR camera, the picture angle is equivalent to that produced by a 24 to 127.5mm focal length lens on a 35mm film or Nikon FX-format camera.



An ultra-compact Silent Wave Motor (SWM) built into the lens body ensures fast, quiet autofocus operation and complements the compact, lightweight design for superb handling. With dimensions of only 72 x 85 mm/2.8 x 3.4 in., this new lens is easy to handle and carry."
