Nikon launches AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR
Nikon has unveiled its new FX-format zoom lens with 24-85mm focal range, which will be available from the end of June 2012.
Built for FX camera users looking for a multipurpose lens, Nikon say the product, which will retail at £519.99, offers a reach from wide-angle up to telephoto and a lightweight body.
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.”
Developed to be especially compact for an FX-format zoom lens, 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 Steady
Nikon’s second-generation Vibration Reduction technology (VRII) 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 Go
The lens has a weather-sealed mount and comes with a lens case CL-1118 and hood HB-63.
This news comes after the company revealed that the total production of NIKKOR lenses for interchangeable lens cameras reached seventy million at the beginning of June 2012. The figure is up five million since production reached sixty five million in October 2011. Moreover, total production of AF-S lenses equipped with the Silent Wave Motor (SWM), the autofocus motor developed by Nikon, has reached 30 million.
