manufacturer description

A precision zoom lens with bright aperture and fast, quiet auto-focus response. This superb G-Series zoom lens covers a broad range of frequent telephoto shooting situations. Its zooming range, fast f/2.8 aperture and quiet, high-speed SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor) auto-focus precision makes it ideal for long-distance sports and wildlife photography.

SSM (Super Sonic wave Motor):
A built-in lens motor for faster automatic focusing with high torque at low speed, quick start/stop response, and quiet, smooth operation.

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) Glass:
Four precision ED Glass lenses correct chromatic aberrations and deliver visually accurate results even at full telephoto zoom extension.

Internal Focusing System:
Internal lens elements move, so the overall length does not change -- creating a zoom lens that focuses more quickly and doesn’t affect the balance of your camera.

2 DMF (Direct Manual Focus) Modes:
Allow you to quickly revert to manual focus by just turning the manual focus ring of the lens.

Versatile Focus Hold:
Three focus hold buttons in different lens locations, plus electronic slider focus range selector switch. - Home of the alpha system photographer
