Internal Focusing. The lens focuses with only the slight motion of
a few internal elements instead of having to crank the entire lens
in and out. This means the front no longer rotates as you focus, making
polarizing and grad filter use easy.
mode means that even while in autofocus you may simply grab the focus
ring to make manual focus adjustments. Next time you tap the shutter
it returns to AF mode, and next time you grab the ring you're instantly
in manual mode. I wish everything on earth worked this well.
Nikon's latest multicoating to increase
light transmission and reduce ghosts.
a Silent Wave Motor, which is an ultrasonic piezo device
similar to Canon's USM. It moves things without making noise. The lens
focuses silently, handy for snoop photography and for sensitive pets
Vibration Reduction. It lets you get sharp images without a tripod.
The lens works internally to compensate for camera motion, vibration
and shake. Of course it can't compensate for your subject moving.
16 elements in 12 groups. That includes two ED glass elements, shown in yellow, and three aspherical elements shown in blue. The
VR group is inside the red box, as seen in the diagram at Nikon's site.
Focus: Nikon's rating is 1.6 feet (20" or 0.5
meters) throughout the entire zoom range. This is fabulous! Mine
is even better: at 200 mm it focuses to 16" (0.4m) from the
image plane. This is closer than 8" (0.2m) from the front
of the lens since the lens pokes out 9" from the image plane
at 200 mm. At 18 mm mine focuses to 15" (0.38 m) from the
image plane or 9.5" (0.24m) in front of the lens. This all
means you always can get close enough.
Macro Ratio: 1:4.5. This is great. This means you
can fill your frame with an area as small as 4-1/4 x 2-3/4"
(108 x 72 mm)!
rounded diaphragm stopping down f/22 (18 mm) to f/36 (200
mm). It works well and is very round at every aperture at which this
would be important.
Size: 3.0" (77
mm) diameter. Extension from lens flange (length excluding rear mount
extension) is 3.8" (96.5
mm) 18mm and 6.4" (162 mm) zoomed out to 200 mm. Erectile function
is roughly linear as the zoom ring is rotated.
Weight: 19.790 oz (561.1g), measured. Nikon specifies 19.8
oz (560 grams).
