The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR zoom lens lets DX-format D-SLR users reach 300mm super-telephoto with clarity and sharpness thanks to its built-in VR II (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization. In addition, the High Refractive Index (HRI) lens, a first for the NIKKOR lineup, achieves clear, high-contrast images at every aperture and focal length, yet contributes to making the lens body slim and compact. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens is a versatile single-lens solution.

The compact AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR, with its High Refractive Index (HRI) lens element and 2 Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements, lets you easily capture far-off images, bringing all the action up close. Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization provides 3.0 stops of blur-free handheld shooting, assuring dramatically sharper still images and HD video capture.

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR continues Nikon's tradition of advancing imaging technology. In addition to VR II image stabilization, it features some of Nikon's latest lens technologies: Nikon's exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for precise, fast, ultra-quiet autofocus operation, Super Integrated Coating (SIC) for enhanced performance in low-light and minimizing ghosting and flare, Tripod Detection Mode for reducing vibrations during tripod shooting and more.

Vibration Reduction - A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.

AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) , which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.

ED (Extra-Low Disepersion) Glass - An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

HRI stands for High Refractive Index Lens. With a refractive index of more than 2.0, one HRI lens can offer effects equivalent to those obtained with several normal glass elements and can compensate for both field curvature and spherical aberrations. Therefore, HRI lenses achieve great optical performance in an even more compact body.

A-M stands for Auto-Manual Mode. Thanks to a mechanism incorporated in the lens barrel, smooth focusing operation in Manual focus mode is realized in the same way as users have become accustomed to with conventional manual-focus lenses by adding an appropriate torque to the focus ring.
