An Extremely Accomplished
Super Telephoto Zoom Lens
The Nikon 70-300mm VR II is an extremely accomplished super telephoto zoom lens conceived to unite the requirements equally for DSLR and 35mm SLR photographers.
It provides a 4.3x zoom with a spread of 70-300mm (Nikon DX D-SLR equivalent 105-450mm ) and includes Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements that make certain of outstanding optical achievements.
This lens stabilizes an image equivalent to employing a
shutter speed four stops faster compared to a conventional
lens. it encompass Nikon's 2nd generation VRII (vibration reduction system) which permits adaptable hand-held shooting.
The Silent Wave Motor (SWM) and Internal Focusing (IF) makes certain of rapid and hushed focusing. The nine-blade diaphragm is rounded and allows elements that are
out-of-focus (bokeh) to intermingle smoothly to create natural-looking, congruent backgrounds.
The casing is all plastic, hard to to Auto-Focus at 300mm focal range. the
1.5x crop factor (105-450mm equivalent) might make for more of a zoom lens than you need.
The lens could be faster (F/4 would be nice). Updated 12/11/ 2010
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.
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

Two ED- (Extra-low Dispersion 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.
G - labeled after the f-number.
All the newer AF lenses, including AF-S and specifically G, are also D.
Nikon no longer makes an effort to mark the D.
G-lenses contains no aperture ring, therefore aperture may only be
electronically controlled by the camera and only autofocus camera bodies
featuring function dials have the capacity to control G lenses
IF- Internal Focusing
The ability to have a lens focus while it's size remains unchanged. Nikons
IF engineering allows that to happen. All internal optical travel is contained
within the inside of the non-extension lens container.
RD- Rounded Diaphragm
Soft-focus images of point light resources create accepted polygonal shapes that
mirror the form of the cavity produced by the diaphragm blades.
SWM- Silent Wave Motor
Nikon AF-S engineering is yet one more rationale why professional
photographers like Nikon telephoto optical lenses

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
