Manufacturer description: The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR is a super-zoom lens for Nikon's FX (full-frame) and DX (APS-C) format DSLRs, featuring optical vibration reduction. A complex design, optical construction comprises 19 elements in 14 groups, with two ED (extra low-dispersion) elements and three aspherical elements. Although it cannot compete with more modest zooms in terms of critical image quality, the appeal of the 28-300mm is its versatility. Unlike some similarly ambitious zooms, for example, this lens offers a minimum focus distance of 0.5m throughout its focal span.
