|AF-S||The lens is equipped with ultrasonic motor to provide very fast and virtually silent autofocus. Learn more|
|G||The lens has no aperture control ring and only supports electronic aperture control from the camera. G lenses provide distance information to the camera as D-type lenses.|
|ED||The lens incorporates one or several low dispersion elements to minimize chromatic aberrations and ensure excellent sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture.|

The lens barrel is heavy, dust-proof and water-resistant, made of metal. The lens mount is metallic.
The lens has rather narrow focal range. Formally it is the disadvantage, however in practice it contributes to a good compensation of optical aberrations and equally high image quality at the entire focal range.
The lens features M/A - M focus mode switch.
|M/A||Autofocus mode that allows switching to manual focus with virtually no time lag - even during autofocus servo operation and regardless of autofocus mode in use.|
|M||Manual focus mode.|
Aspherical elements (ASPH, XA) minimize spherical aberration, astigmatism, coma and ensure excellent sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture.
Low dispersion elements (AD, ED, LD, HLD, SD, UD etc) and fluorite elements minimize chromatic aberrations and ensure excellent sharpness and contrast even at maximum aperture.
Due to the prominent convex profile of the front element the lens does not have a filter thread.
