Lens Description: Nikkor 35mm Lenses Behind every lens is a history of Nikon quality and innovation that has consistently set new standards of excellence. Nikon s most remarkable innovation may be its consistent use of the Nikon F lens mount which makes your camera compatible with literally hundreds of Nikkor lenses. Even when you re using the most powerful Nikkor super-telephoto lens, your pictures will be clear and sharp, with exellent color rendition. That s because many Nikkor telephoto and super-telephoto lenses are made with ED glass, a Nikon innovation that virtually eliminates the color fringing common with regular lens glass in longer focal lengths. This lightweight, compact 4.3x telephoto zoom features Nikon s exclusive ED glass for correction of chromatic aberration. With a close-focusing distance of 5 , the 70-300 offers convenient macro capability with a reproduction ratio up to 1/3.9. The 70-300mm f/4-5.6D ED is affordably priced within the range of almost every photographer
