Sharp, clear images

Nikon technology for optimum performance

A rounded, seven-blade diaphragm makes out of focus elements appear more natural, and a hybrid aspherical lens element minimizes various types of lens aberration. Expect vibrant, clear images and videos.

AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.


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.
