Autofocus to 6.4 inches
Continuous autofocusing from infinity to 6.4 inches (life-size / 1X).
Close-Range Correction System (CRC)
Using Nikons innovative floating element design, each lens group moves independently to achieve focus - providing high performance at both near and far distances.

A significant innovation in AF-S lens technology, Nikons Silent Wave Motor uses ultrasonic (inaudible) vibrations rather than a gear system to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
M/A (Manual/Auto) focus mode switch
When fine manual focusing is needed, simply rotate the lens focus ring M/A mode allows you to seamlessly override the AF system with virtually no time lag.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC)
Enhances light transmission and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare.
