Nikon 1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD-Zoom Lens Features and Specifications

The thin 1 NIKKOR VR 10–30mm f/3.5–5.6 PD-ZOOM lens is available for the first time in the Nikon 1 V3 kits. Perfect for everything from distant subjects to tight close-ups, this is a lens that frames the moment perfectly and zooms incredibly smoothly. As the first lens in the 1 NIKKOR line up to boast an automatic, electronically controlled lens cover as well as a retractable lens mechanism, it’s ready to shoot the instant you turn the camera on; and it retracts as soon as you power the camera off for superior portability.

1 NIKKOR VR 10–30mm f/3.5–5.6 PD-ZOOM: smooth zoom

The incredibly thin 1 NIKKOR VR 10–30mm f/3.5–5.6 PD-ZOOM joins the 1 NIKKOR line-up in place of the 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. Super-small and remarkably lightweight, this new lens offers superb portability and instant shooting, delivering higher image quality and smoother zooming for stunning photos and movies. The broad 10-30mm zoom range (35 mm equivalent: 27–81 mm) offers the versatility to frame wide camera angles, or zoom out to capture distant subjects with ease. The electric power-drive zoom and power zoom ring enable swift, smooth zooming and intuitive operation, which is especially handy when filming or when you want to keep pace with the action. Equipped with a retractable lens mechanism and an electronic lens cover rather than a lens cap, this thin lens captures even the most unexpected photo or movie moments without delay. Turn the camera on and the cover opens while the lens extends: no need to loose precious milliseconds removing the lens cap. Turn the camera off and the lens instantly retracts, making it easy to slip the camera back into your bag with the lens still attached. Boasting a tough yet luxurious exterior, this stylish 1 NIKKOR lens is available in black.

Sharp and steady: superior image quality

Both of the new 1 NIKKOR zoom lenses feature the latest Nikon lens technology for superior image quality. The high-quality optical design of the 1 NIKKOR VR 70–300mm f/4.5–5.6 lens ensures sharp, high-contrast images throughout the aperture range: one Super ED (extra-low dispersion) glass element reduces chromatic aberration and Nano Crystal Coat greatly reduces ghosting and flare. The 1 NIKKOR VR 10–30mm f/3.5–5.6 PD-ZOOM lens boasts four aspherical lens elements and an ED glass element, which correct unwanted aberrations and distortions for images with superior resolution and contrast. Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) system is incorporated in both lenses for clear, blur-free images throughout the zoom range, especially when shooting at slower shutter speeds.

1 NIKKOR range

1 NIKKOR lenses capture life with exceptional sharpness. Combined with the portability, power and speed of Nikon 1 cameras, the small size of 1 NIKKOR lenses truly sets the Nikon 1 system apart. Designed with active lifestyles in mind, the growing range covers a wide range of scenes, and each lens is optimized for movie recording. For photographers who want to use F-Mount NIKKOR lenses on their Nikon 1 camera, the dedicated FT1 Mount Adapter allows them to do just that.
