The Nikon AF-S DX 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens exceeds 5.5x zoom to broaden wide angle to medium telephoto photographic possibilities and the Nikon AF-S 55-300 lens maintains a fast aperture throughout to make it practical and easy to use.
When mounted on any of the new Nikon DX -series digital SLR cameras the picture angle is the equivalent to 82.5 ~ 450mm on a 35mm  format camera.
Covering a picture angle equivalent to 82.5 ~ 450mm on a 35mm camera it maintains its fast maximum aperture throughout its zoom range giving it a big advantage over the cheaper optics for photographers who shoot in dim lighting and those who require a high level of depth-of-field control with differential focusing.
Zooming and focusing are controlled by two rings the zoom ring being relatively close to the camera while the focus ring is at the end of the barrel. Unusually for a consumer lens no depth-of-field or infrared markings are provided despite the importance of the former for cameras with smaller than 35mm size sensors. There''s no aperture ring either a common omission in all G-series lenses. Auto focusing is driven by Nikon''s Silent Wave Motor (SWM) technology which is fast and quiet. The Nikon AF-S 55-300 lens minimum focus is 1.4m and all focusing and zooming movements are external so polarising filters require no adjustment when either setting is changed.
The Nikon AF-S DX 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens mount is fitted with a rubber ring that seals out particles of dust and drops of water. The Nikon AF-S 55-300 is also supplied with a large bayonet-mounting lens hood (HB-57) that clips firmly onto the front of the barrel and is reversed onto the lens for carrying plus a soft drawstring lens case. The filter ring accepts 58mm diameter attachments and the supplied lens cap is the new pinch-front type. A slider on the left side of the lens barrel selects between M/A (autofocus with manual override) and M (manual only) focusing. As second slider is available to trigger the Vibration Reduction feature. No other controls are provided.
