AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5–4.5G ED VR (Vibration Reduction) lens

Versatile wide-angle to medium telephoto lens with vibration reduction technology to reduce the effects of camera shake, minimize blur and maintain focus.

24.3-megapixel FX format CMOS sensor delivers incredible detail and gorgeous enlargements

The full-frame (same size as the 35mm-film format) sensor produces great edge-to-edge clarity with incredible detail and sharpness.

ISO 100–6,400 (expandable to 25,600)

Enjoy crisp, clean images over a broad spectrum of lighting conditions, even capturing great shots just before dawn and at dusk, when available light is often beautiful but scarce.

Capture fast-action shots at up to 6 fps (frames per second)

From joyous facial expressions to fast-paced sports action, burst mode ensures you get the shot even if it only lasts a fraction of a second.

3.2" TFT-LCD monitor auto adjusts brightness for sharp vivid color in any light

The ambient brightness sensor and automatic brightness control make it easy to frame and review shots.

Capture spectacular movies in Full 1080p HD

Shoot 1080p HD videos with selectable frame rates of 30p, 25p or 24p.

EXPEED 3 image-processing engine delivers speed and performance

From shooting images and videos, to playback and data transfer, this processor handles even the most demanding tasks with ease.

Eye-level single-lens reflex viewfinder provides virtually true-to-life image representation

With approximately 97% horizontal and vertical frame coverage, you can compose the shot by seeing virtually the same shot the lens sees.

Focus exactly where you want it

Whether shooting stationary images, high-speed action or Full HD video, a 39-point high-density autofocus system with 3D tracking locks onto your subject to keep it in perfect focus.

Optional wireless mobile adapter lets you easily share photos

Transfer photos to your compatible cell phone, tablet or other Wi-Fi–enabled devices. Wireless mobile adapter sold separately.

Scene Recognition System delivers shots as clearly as you see them

It automatically analyzes your shot, comparing it to an onboard database of scenes to determine optimal auto exposure, flash exposure, white balance and autofocus settings.

Continuous quiet mode

Capture a sequence of shots without the noise associated with the raising and lowering of the DSLR's mirror.

Built-in pop-up flash offers new shooting possibilities

Provides balanced fill flash for extra depth and dimension. Integrates with Nikon's i-TTL system communicating exposure information with remote flashes.

Multiformat memory slots for storing or transferring data

Supports SD, SDHC and SDXC formats. Memory cards not included.

    Great Camera for a professional!


    As a professional photographer this camera is amazing for what I need it to do! Picture quality is fantastic! My only complaint would be that Nikon fix their manual to condense everything so when you need to figure out how to change the f/stop you don't have to go to 3 different pages to figure it out. The same with the ISO. I like that now you can change these main parts from the outside of the camera versus having to go into the Menu like you had to do with the D5100.
