Pro-grade dust and moisture resistance, fast f/2.8 aperture, and the latest optics put this lens near the top of Nikon’s lineup. The large, gold “N” on its barrel indicates Nano Crystal Coat for reduced flare and ghosting.
Surprisingly, this $1,700 (street) lens is Nikon's first constant-aperture optic in the very popular, all-purpose, standard zoom category. Both of the company's previous pro and amateur 24-85mm lenses had variable apertures. If the gold ornamentation on its barrel doesn't tip you off, the price should confirm that this is a professional-caliber lens.
