About the Product
The new Model A032 high-speed zoom is designed to maximize the potential of the latest high-pixel-density cameras while delivering best-in-class image quality with the use of new specialized, high quality glass materials that offer greater optical transmittance. Our proprietary eBAND Coating resists ghosting and flare, making this lens ideal for backlit photography.
Super steady and always ready, the AF-S NIKKOR 24-70mm f/2.8E ED VR workhorse is prepared to take your work to the next level. With up to 4 stops* of VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization, you can capture sharp, steady handheld stills and HD videos, and shoot at slower shutter speeds in low-light situations without sacrificing sharpness. Pair it with a Nikon full-frame high-resolution DSLR to capture the decisive moment with a thrilling balance of sharpness and soft blur effects. Covering the sweet spot of the zoom range with a fast f/2.8 constant aperture, you'll be ready for everything from environmental portraits, studio photography, landscape, architecture (exteriors and interiors), press events and weddings.
