Supreme Optics

The inclusion of two ED and one HRI element helps eliminate aberrations and distortion for superior picture quality.
Providing outstanding optical performance, the lens comprises 17 elements in 11 groups, in a design with two ED and one HRI (High Refractive Index) glass lens element. With a refractive index of more than 2.0, the HRI element offers effects equivalent to those obtained with several normal glass elements and can compensate for both field curvature and spherical aberrations. Working together, the HRI and ED elements deliver crisp images even under harsh lighting conditions while the rounded nine-blade diaphragm creates a soft rendering effect, producing high-quality natural backgrounds. This highly efficient optics system achieves clear, high contrast images at every aperture and focal length and contributes to the compact dimensions, making the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR conveniently portable.

Nikon’s AF-S technology is yet another reason why professional photographers like NIKKOR lenses. Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) converts travelling waves into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that’s extremely accurate and super quiet. So for discrete shooting you can set up the shot in an instant and camera focusing won’t disturb sensitive subjects like wildlife.

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR from Nikon is an exceptionally affordable, VR super-telephoto zoom lens which delivers a level of clarity and reliability that every passionate photographer can appreciate.
