Covering a versatile wide angle to medium telephoto zoom range, the new AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR delivers noticeably sharper photos and HD videos thanks to Nikon's second-generation Vibration Reduction technology (VR II). Shoot at shutter speeds up to 4-times slower than would otherwise be possible for greater low-light capability, and enjoy the benefits of Vibration Reduction during HD video recording—even when using a tripod.

Versatile 3.6x standard zoom for brilliant photos and HD videos

The AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR covers wide-angle and medium telephoto perspectives, making it a great multipurpose lens for photography and HD video recording. At its widest focal length (24mm on FX-format D-SLRs, 36mm on DX-format D-SLRs) it's ideal for travel, landscapes, interiors, group shots and more. At its longest focal length (85mm on FX-format D-SLRs, 136.5mm on DX-format D-SLRs), it's ideal for close-ups, portraits, interviews and more.

Nikon's VR II Image Stabilization with Tripod Auto Detect

Nikon's second generation Vibration Reduction technology (VR II) enables handheld shooting at shutter speeds up to 4-times slower than would otherwise be possible. That opens up new possibilities for low-light shooting. Slow down the shutter speed to capture maximum natural light without sacrificing sharpness. Nikon's VR II also includes tripod detection, which automatically recognizes when your camera is mounted on a tripod and delivers a specialized VR correction that is ideal for HD video recording.

Nikon innovations for consistent performance

Nikon's innovations in optical design and lens technology have brought forth a remarkable new generation of NIKKOR lenses with unparalleled versatility. The AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR is no exception. From its Silent Wave Motor (SWM) to its Super Integrated Coating (SIC), Extra-low Dispersion Glass Element (ED) and Aspherical Lens Element Design (AS), the AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR is an advanced lens that draws peak performance from today's D-SLR and HD-SLR cameras.
