A Flexible Imaging Tool Featuring a Consistent f/4.0 Maximum Aperture
Although the 24-120mm f/4G VR Zoom was created primarily to be use on FX DSLR camera, it' feels just as right on any DX DSLR camera. it's a normal 5x zoom on the FX camera bodies, it's just right for portraits, landscapes, or weddings - and an excellent selection for an ideal go-everywhere lens. On a DX camera, it's focal length is bumped up by 1.5x effectively turning it into a daunting longer-range optic having sufficient wide angle for every shot but the widest.
It's a flexible imaging tool featuring a consistent f/4.0 maximum aperture allowing photographers to preserve their exposure settings all the way through the total zoom range. For those crucial focusing-instances - there's an M/A focus switch that lets the photographer quickly switch between autofocus and manual modes.
The Nikon optical engineers have added the Nikon Super Integrated Coating to the lens elements- an advanced multi-coating process which augment light transmission to gain maximum crispness, clarity, and contrast. In addition this Nikkor contains advantages from the Nikon Nano Crystal Coat - the high-technology lens coating that guarantees maximum picture quality by eliminating or diminishing negative effects from flare, ghosting, and glare.
It's too heavy as a DX lens, although ok on an FX. There's Vignetting plus corner softness (although
a bigger problem on the FX).

Compact & Versatile 5x Standard Zoom Lens with f/4 Maximum Aperture
Perfect for landscapes, portraits, weddings, and distant subjects. Offers a constant maximum aperture to maintain exposure settings throughout the entire zoom range
AF-S Autofocus lens featuring a Silent wave,
coreless, integrated, focus motor (unwrapped in 1996). Basically an
updated AF-I Autofocus-Silent sporting a "Silent Wave Motor" (ultrasonic) to
focus near silently and fast.
Aspherical lens elements
- Nikon unveiled the first lens in 1968 featuring aspherical camera lens elements. What makes them different? Aspherical lenses all but eliminates the issues of coma and related kinds of lens aberrations
even when employed at the maximum aperture.
D- Distance. Denoted after the f-number.
It signifies the lens has the capacity to use
Nikon's 3D Matrix Metering
on camera bodies where it is supported.
DX - NIKKOR - Compact and lightweight
Nikon DX lenses feature a lesser image circle and are specifically created and
optimized for the Nikon D-series, digital SLR camera bodies. An ideal option for
photographers and enthusiasts who require shooting of expansive landscapes with
Nikon DX DSLR
Two ED- (Extra-low Dispersion Glass Elements)
a necessary element of the Nikon telephoto lens
Nikon engineered Extra-low Dispersion optical glass to facilitate the
manufacture of lenses that provide superior color correction and sharpness by
diminishing chromatic aberrations
The leading factor setting the Nikon
FX apart from other sensors is the large size of the pixels, which allows
for more light collection.
IF- Internal Focusing
The ability to have a lens focus while it's size remains unchanged. Nikon’s
IF engineering allows that to happen. All internal optical travel is contained
within the inside of the non-extension lens container.
AF-S Nikon lenses include the exclusive Nikon M/A focus function, that permits
switching from auto to manual focus virtually without time lag - even while the
AF servo is in operation regardless of the AF mode in play.
N-Nano Crystal Coat
Nano Crystal Coat consist of an antireflective coat that stemmed from the cultivation of Nikon NSR-series
(Step and Repeat type) semiconductor fabricating devices
RD- Rounded 9 Blade Diaphragm
Soft-focus images of point light resources create accepted polygonal shapes that
mirror the form of the cavity produced by the diaphragm blades.
SIC - Nikon Super Integrated Coating
Nikon uses an elite multilayer lens coating to augment the operation of its
lens elements which also helps diminish ghosting and flare to minute levels.
Nikon Super Integrated Coat also accomplishes several purposes
SWM- Silent Wave Motor
Nikon AF-S engineering is yet one more rationale why professional photographers like Nikon telephoto optical lenses.
VR II Vibration Reduction system
Provides the equivalent of employing a 4 stops faster shutter speed This second generation VR is known as VR II, that was engineered to provide an
additional 1-stop improvement over the initial VR
