This compact zoom telephoto lens has excellent image quality thanks to its SLD glass, plus the Optical Stabilisation gives up to 4 stops extra in low light. As a DG-Series lens it can be used with either full 35mm frame cameras or digital SLRs with APS-C-sized sensors. The rounded 9-blade diaphragm also makes this an ideal lens for portraiture.
NOTE: This lens will not auto-focus on Nikon D40, D40X, D60, D3000-series or D5000-series cameras.
The optical image stabilisation (OS) within this lens gives mechanical compensation of camera shake for up to 4 stops extra shooting in low light. As it's an optical system you can monitor the stabilising effect in your viewfinder.
