The newest lens in the expansive DX-format line-up, AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED provides photographers the opportunity to capture unique perspectives in a variety of shooting situations. Compact and lightweight, the new 2.4x Zoom DX-NIKKOR lens offers a focal length of 10 to 24mm, creating a picture angle ranging from 109-degrees to 61-degrees (FX-format equivalent of 15-36mm), ideal for a variety of applications including interiors, architecture and sweeping landscapes.
The AF-S DX-NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED lens offers an array of versatile Nikon technologies, including Nikon's compact Silent Wave Motor (SWM) technology for quiet, fast and accurate autofocus performance. An advanced optical formula, featuring two extra-low dispersion (ED) glass and three aspherical lens elements renders stunning images while minimizing distortion, a common problem with ultra wide-angle lenses.
A rounded diaphragm opening, combined with the seven-blade aperture, contributes to the 10-24mm lens' ability to capture images with soft background effects. There are also two focus modes, manual and automatic, with an M/A mode that lets you quickly switch between the two. Both use an internal focusing (IF) design that enhances AF speed and eliminates lens barrel rotation and changes to lens barrel length during focusing.
Fully compatible with Nikon's complete line of DX-format digital SLR cameras - including the D60, D90, D300 and the D5000 - the AF-S DX-NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED lens enables you to expand your view in new and interesting ways.
