Nikkor Lens - AF-S VR 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G IF ED (5.0x)

Nikkor Lens - AF-S VR 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G IF ED (5.0x)

The Nikkor AF-S 24-120mm VR Lens, which offers a focal range of 24-120mm only available from Nikon, and incorporates advanced features such as SWM (Silent Wave Motor) and VR (Vibration Reduction), is even smaller than its predecessor, the AF Zoom-Nikkor 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6D IF. NO LONGER AVAILABLE.
 The AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6 IF-ED was developed in response to the demands from mid- and higher-range SLR users for a more affordable, highly portable high-power VR zoom lens.  RRP $1,099.


  • SWM provides super-fast, super-quiet AF operation
  • VR operation offers the equivalent of using a shutter speed 3 stops faster (at 120mm)*
  • High-power 5x zoom lens
  • IF (Internal Focusing) technology for smoother focusing and a better balanced handling
  • Two aspherical lenses and two ED glass elements for higher optical performance

*As determined by Nikon performance tests.
