The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR is a stabilized standard telephoto zoom designed for use on Nikon's FX (full-frame) and DX (APS-C) DSLRs. It covers an equivalent focal range of 105-450mm on the DX format, making it a useful 'second lens' for DX shooters as well as owners of the D600 or D800, especially if you're thinking of upgrading to full-frame in the future.
