Unleash your creativity with the AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR’s powerful 10.7x zoom. Cover a wide range of focal lengths to get the best out of every subject - from breathtaking panoramas, to natural portraits or dramatic telephoto close-ups. With a minimum focus distance of 0.5m, the lens produces macros with an astounding level of detail.
This zoom lens also features our most innovative technologies to ensure peak performance at any range and in any situation.

Vibration Reduction image stabilisation technology effectively increases performance by 3.5 stops* resulting in crisp images when shooting handheld or in low-light environment.
*Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when FX-format compatible lenses are attached to an FX-format digital SLR camera and zoom lenses are set at the maximum telephoto position.
