Nikkor 1-Series 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR Zoom Lens
Nikkor 1-Series 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 VR zoom lens works as an excellent portrait lens thanks to its 35mm equivalent focal length of 27-81mm. The lens encompasses VR (Vibration Reduction), AS (Aspherical Elements) and Super Integrated Coating (SIC) elements. Internal focusing ensures that the barrel length never extends during focusing or zooming while the 7-blade rounded diaphragm ensures a nice out of focus background.
1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6
This CX-format standard zoom lens captures sharp details with up to three times magnification. Compact and lightweight, the 10-30mm is equipped with Vibration Reduction (VR) and a silent stepping AF motor (STM) which make it the ideal, versatile lens. Quality and integrity are hallmarks of the new 1 NIKKOR lens system.
Compact, portable, versatile standard zoom lens
A versatile 10-30mm standard zoom lens perfect for family outings, group shots and portraits, this lens brings precision to most lighting scenarios with a f/3.5-5.6 maximum aperture range (picture angle equivalent of a 27-81mm in 35mm format). Vibration Reduction (VR) reduces the chance of blurred photos. Retractable lens barrel mechanism reduces overall size for increased portability.
Versatility with wide angle to portrait
Keep moments in focus
Whether the whole family or just a single person, the 10-30mm is the perfect lens to frame the moment. Versatility and precision are yours when photographing from wide to tight portrait looks. The 1 NIKKOR 10-30mm lens applies three aspherical lens elements to ensure only the highest quality imageseven at the widest aperture settingsare obtained. You know most family shots are taken while on the go. Count on Vibration Reduction (VR) to keep your pictures blur-free.
Find the detail using 10-30mm zoom range
Pick your focus point
Frame that wonderful ocean shot or sun setting over the bridge. A superior all-around lens, the 10-30mm commands sharp focus with excellent delivery of details in images taken far away. Versatility is yours as you frame wide camera angles, just the way you like or smoothly zoom out until you find exactly the right balance of details to include in your shot.
Pull it closer
Shoot from afar
Use the full reach of the 10-30mm and bring subjects close. For when you cannot get right up to the action, a 30mm zoom may be just right. Hone in on your subject and hit the shutter. Even at this magnification your photos come out crystal clear and sharp with Vibration Reduction (VR).
This innovative VR system minimizes image blur caused by camera shake. It allows handheld shooting at dusk, at night, and even in poorly lit interiors. The lens' VR system also detects automatically when the photographer pansno special mode is required.
Aspherical lens element
Aspherical lenses virtually eliminate the problem of coma and other types of lens aberrationeven when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting the distortion in wideangle lenses. In addition, use of aspherical lenses contributes to a lighter and smaller lens design.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating
To enhance the performance of its optical lens elements, Nikon employs an exclusive multilayer lens coating that helps reduce ghost and flare to a negligible level. Nikon Super Integrated Coating achieves a number of objectives, including minimized reflection in the wider wavelength range and superior color balance and reproduction.
Imagine being able to focus a lens without it changing in size. Nikon's IF technology enables just that. All internal optical movement is limited to the interior of the nonextending lens barrel. This allows for a more compact, lightweight construction as well as a closer focusing distance.
