Nikon AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR Standard Zoom Lens
Nikon have completely updated their popular 24-70mm f/2.8 lens with a new version that now incorporates Vibration Reduction. You’ll also find that this lens has a new optical design developed to combat chromatic aberrations, and that the autofocus speed has also been improved (by around 1.5x compared to the older 24-70mm) using Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor.
In addition to the optical design being updated, you’ll also find that Nikon have strengthened the whole construction of this lens to be able to withstand the punishment it might be exposed to over the years of use it would bring. The lens is fully weather sealed to repel water, dust and dirt.

f/2.8 aperture throughout the range
Included: detachable hood with lock, and soft case.
Professional f/2.8 standard zoom: 24–70mm focal length range (DX-format equivalent: 36–105mm). The go-to wide-angle to medium telephoto zoom, no matter what you shoot.
Fast f/2.8 aperture: enables exceptional low-light performance and consistent exposure across the entire zoom range.
Vibration Reduction (VR): minimises camera shake and lets you shoot at shutter speeds up to four stops slower. ¹
Superb performance: this lens yields outstanding clarity and contrast throughout the frame. The optical design effectively counters colour fringing and chromatic aberration, and controls distortion throughout the zoom range.
Advanced optical construction: includes a newly developed aspherical extra-low-dispersion (ED) glass element, as well as three aspherical lens elements, two ED glass elements and a High Refractive Index (HRI) element.
Nano Crystal Coat: reduces ghosting and flare for greater image clarity.
Electromagnetic diaphragm: enables consistent, more precise exposures during high-speed bursts.
Silent Wave Motor (SWM): ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocus performance with seamless manual override.
Rugged and reliable: resilient and sturdy construction built for intensive and demanding professional use.
Fluorine coating: actively repels water, dust, and dirt without compromising image quality. The coating is applied to the protective glass on the front and rear elements of the lens, where it also makes it easier to clean the glass without damaging the surface.
