the 1 NIKKOR VR 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 lens incorporates some of NIKKOR’s most exciting advancements. Its the first lens in the 1 NIKKOR lineup to use Super Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass, which provides stunning sharpness, contrast and color rendering. It also features Nano Crystal Coating (N), which nearly eliminates lens flare and ghosting for clearer, sharper images.
