The Nikon AF-S 28-300 mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a 10.7x super-telephoto lens that covers a broad range of focal lengths from the wide-angle 28 mm to telephoto 300 mm, making it extremely practical for shooting at a variety of focal lengths, from wide-angle landscape shots to telephoto shooting.
Its size and weight makes it very portable. Built-in vibration reduction (VR II) offers camera shake compensation equivalent to a shutter speed increase of approximately four steps and is equipped with two VR modes: Normal and Active, that respond to a variety of shooting situations.
