|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, made of metal. The lens mount is metallic.

The lens uses front filters with standard size of 77 mm which are easy to find. However, filters of such size are more expensive and mainly used with professional lenses.
The filter thread does not rotate during focusing which allows convenient use of different types of filters (including but not limited to polarizing and gradient).
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.
