    The new lens, which offers a focal range of 24-120mm only available from Nikon, and incorporates advanced features such as SWM (Silent Wave Motor) and VR (Vibration Reduction), is even smaller than its predecessor, the AF Zoom-Nikkor 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6D IF.


    The AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 12-24mm* f/4G IF-ED is the first lens in the new DX Nikkor series. Designed specifically for use with Nikon D1-series and D100 digital SLR cameras.


    This important new lens will feature Nikon's Vibration Reduction system, newly enhanced to compensate for image blur caused by hand shake and also shake caused by movement of the photographer such as riding in a car or aircraft; the compensation can handle shutter speeds about three times slower than one might otherwise use without VR technology.


    This new autofocus DX-Nikkor interchangeable lens category will be dedicated to Nikon D-Series digital SLR models and is designed to address the market's need for wider angle-of-view high-performance optics for digital SLR photography.


    This is the first image stabilised lens from an independent manufacturer, the 80-400mm f4.5-5.6 EX.


    A new telephoto zoom lens, which retains a constant fast aperture of F2.8 at all focal lengths.


    A 300mm telephoto to 800mm ultra-telephoto zoom lens featuring a constant large aperture through its entire range.


    At 28mm focal length this lens has a fast F2.8 maximum aperture. The tiny weight of 245g/8.6oz and length of 6cm/2.4in makes this very compact optic.


    The EF24-70mm f/2.8L USM is the successor to the EF28-70mm f/2.8L USM and offers a higher zoom range combined with a wider angle to ensure high image quality.


    With an angle of view of 97-63 and a minimum focus distance of 0.5m, the 19-35mm is ideally suited for travel and landscape photography. Compact and lightweight, the lens is easy to carry anywhere as it weighs in at a mere 300 grams and is only 67.7mm long.


    This new lens uses XR (Extra Refractive Index) glass to reduce the optical length of the lens through high refractivity. At the same time reducing the number of elements results in a more compact, lightweight lens package.


    Designed for digital cameras these special effect filters come in three different kits. They range in price from 24.00 to 39.99. We will be testing the Filterfast G350 shortly.
