The AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR focuses like a dream. When shooting video, its smooth stepping motor keeps focusing noise to a minimum. If you need to make adjustments, you’ll appreciate the silky smooth manual operation. To eliminate unintentional changes to the VR ON/OFF and AF/MF settings, those controls have been moved to the camera menu, and their status can be easily verified in your camera’s information display.
