Developed exclusively for use with Nikon DX Format digital
SLR cameras, this lightweight, compact zoom lens is an excellent match
for the new Nikon D2H digital SLR camera. The 17-55mm range exceeds 3x
zoom to broaden wide angle to medium telephoto photographic
possibilities, and the lens maintains fast f/2.8 aperture throughout to
make it practical and easy to use. When mounted on any of the Nikon D2H,
D1-series or D100 digital SLR cameras, the picture angle is the
equivalent to 25.5 to 82.5mm on a 35mm  format camera.
range and image quality makes this the lens professionals and advanced
enthusiasts will use most with Nikon DX Format digital SLR cameras for
shooting portraits and close-ups, as well as nature studies. It also
complements the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 12-24mm f/4G IF-ED lens in Nikon's
expanding DX Nikkor lens lineup.
Nikon established yet stricter
evaluation standards for the new lens, and it achieves greater picture
resolution as a result. The newly developed optical system employed
includes three ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements that minimize
chromatic aberration and three aspherical lenses that minimize
distortion. Nikon's exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) ensures fast,
quiet autofocus. And the nine-blade rounded diaphragm opening provides a
rich, natural look to out-of-focus elements. With its useful wide range
and high quality performance, this compact, lightweight lens will help
win a warm place for the Nikon DX format in the hearts of Digital SLR
Note: This lens is not compatible with 35mm  format or IX240 format film cameras
