|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 of moderate weight, made of high-quality plastic. The lens mount is metallic.
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.|
The lens uses front filters with standard size of 58 mm which are easy to find. They are also inexpensive.
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.
