- FX-format compatible, 5x telephoto zoom lens covering the focal-length range from 80 to 400 mm
- High optical performance is realized with super ED glass (x1) and ED glass (x4) elements
- Nano Crystal Coat effectively reduces flare and ghosting
- VR (Vibration Reduction) minimizes camera shake by offering a shutter speed equivalent to 4.0 stops* faster
- *Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when attached to an FX-format digital SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
- Silent Wave Motor (SWM) offers quiet AF operation while achieving the highest level AF speed in this class
- Three focus modes are available — A/M (autofocus with manual override, AF priority), M/A (autofocus with manual override, manual priority) and M (manual focus)
