Advanced and versatile FX-format standard zoom with VR II image stabilization.
Covering a versatile wide angle to medium telephoto zoom range, the new AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR delivers noticeably sharper photos and HD videos thanks to Nikon's second-generation Vibration Reduction technology (VR II). Shoot at shutter speeds up to 4-times slower than would otherwise be possible for greater low-light capability, and enjoy the benefits of Vibration Reduction during HD video recording—even when using a tripod.
Versatile 3.6x standard zoom for brilliant photos and HD videos
The AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR covers wide-angle and medium telephoto perspectives, making it a great multipurpose lens for photography and HD video recording.

Nikon's VR II Image Stabilization with Tripod Auto Detect
Nikon's second generation Vibration Reduction technology (VR II) enables handheld shooting at shutter speeds up to 4-times slower than would otherwise be possible. That opens up new possibilities for low-light shooting. Slow down the shutter speed to capture maximum natural light without sacrificing sharpness. Nikon's VR II also includes tripod detection, which automatically recognizes when your camera is mounted on a tripod and delivers a specialized VR correction that is ideal for HD video recording.
