  • Short-Wavelength Refractive Lens

    Brusque-Wavelength Refractive Lens

    SR is a loftier- and specialized-dispersion glass lens that refracts light with wavelengths shorter than that of blue. By controlling short-wavelength light, the lens is able to achieve highly precise chromatic abnormality compensation then that the colors in your images are more accurately reproduced. It also allows for more than flexible optical designs, which allows for compact, lighter lenses to be designed.

  • ARNEO Coat

    ARNEO Glaze

    An anti-cogitating coating adult by Nikon and used in conjunction with Nano Crystal Coat to further reduce ghost and flare effects caused by incident light entering the lens vertically. This allows for the outstandingly articulate capture of images even when a light source is located within the frame.

  • Fluorite Lens Element
