This all-round lens from Nikon is suitable for cameras with an APS-C sensor. The lens has a large zoom range so you can make both overview photos and portraits. The flexible focal length makes this lens ideal for travel and holidays. You won't have to carry a bag with heavy lenses to have a large zoom range. Despite the large zoom range, the lens weights only 480 grams, lighter than comparable zoom lenses. The maximum aperture of f/2.8 ensures a nice background blur. Fully zoomed, the lens has an aperture of f/4. To prevent blurred photos, Nikon has equipped the lens with optical image stabilization.
Note: this AF-s 'E' lens isn't compatible with the following Nikon DSLR models: D2-series, D1-series, D200, D100, D90, D80, D70-series, D60, D50, D40-series, and the D3000 DSLR camera
