The lens construction integrates one super ED (extra-low dispersion) and four ED glass elements to help
minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range and contribute to higher image sharpness, clarity,
and color fidelity. The Nano Crystal Coat reduces surface reflections, helping to prevent lens flare and ghosting
for greater contrast and light transmission.
Built-in Vibration Reduction image stabilization compensates for the effects of camera shake up to the
equivalent of four shutter speed steps. A dedicated VR setting for tripods is available for producing the sharpest
imagery possible without countering the effects of the image stabilization system.
