Nikon 28-70mm 2.8 lens-making is an art–Nikon artisans craft Nikkor optics from the finest materials, taking pride in adding their intellect and technique to bring the world’s finest lenses to life. They push the leading edge of lens-making in their effort to provide the “glass” that makes the world’s greatest pictures.
AF Nikkor lenses work with Nikon SLRs for optimal performance, even the very latest. The Nikon 28-70mm f2.8D ED-IF Autofocus Zoom Nikkor Lens is a wide to telephoto 2.5x zoom lens ideal for architecture and portraiture. The ED glass element reduces chromatic aberrations providing superior optical performance–even at maximum aperture. There is no power drain when manually focusing for optimum battery use. The molded-glass aspherical lens minimizes distortion for higher resolution and superior contrast. The lens holds a fast and constant f2.8 maximum aperture through the entire focal range, while the M/A mode provides quick switching between autofocus and manual focus operation. The nine-blade rounded diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural.
