Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED Lens

SKU # nik.2147


The world's first constant f/2.8 3.2x zoom lens developed exclusively for use with Nikon DX Format

3.2x zoom covers from a wide angle of 79 degrees to a narrow angle of 28 degrees 50 minutes (equivalent to 25.5mm to 85.5mm for 35mm format) and is ideal for architecture, landscape, groups shots and portraits.

DX design enables a combination of wider angle-of-view with optical characteristics that are optimized for Nikon digital SLR camera sensors

Nikon DX design produces a smaller image circle (the size of the image that is projected by the lens on to the sensor) enabling smaller lens diameter, lighter weight and optimal image quality from center-to edge-to-corner on the image

3 Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass elements for minimized chromatic aberration and provide higher resolution and superior contrast

3 Aspherical lens elements for minimized distortion

Lightweight and compact design: similar to 17-35mm f/2.8 lensExclusive Silent Wave Motor enables ultra-high-speed autofocusing with exceptional accuracy and powerful super-quiet operation

[M/A] and [M] modes allow rapid switching between AF and MF operation

Internal Focusing (IF) design for smoother focusing and great body balance

Nikon D-type design provides precise distance information for flash and ambient light exposure processes

Rounded diaphragm to make out-of-focus elements appear more natural

G Type DX Nikkor is designed exclusively for use with Nikon Digital SLR models
