For convenience, it features quick, one-ring focusing and zooming; simply turn the ring to focus and push or pull it to zoom. Normal focusing extends from infinity down to 5ft. with provision for close focusing at all focal lenghts by operating the special macro ring. At the 35mm setting, close focusing ranges from 5ft. down to 0.9ft. Filter size is the standard 52mm Nikon size - exceptionally small for a zoom lens with this wide a range of focal lenghts.
Constructed of the highest quality Nikon glass, this zoom lens produces sharp images with high contrast from the shortest to the longest focal length with all aberrations well corrected. In addition, Nikon Integrated Coating (NIC) is applied to all air-to-glass surfaces of the lens elements to minimize ghost images and flare and produce photographs with natural color rendition.
