Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens w/ Kit
The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens is a compact 5.5x zoom lens for DX-format D-SLR cameras. Its equivalent focal length in FX-format is 82.5-450mm. This lens is an excellent choice for travel, landscapes, portraits, and distant subjects. The lens focuses to 4.6' at every focal length - this versatility ensures stunning close-up shots of subjects near and far.
The VR II image stabilization allows you to handhold the your camera at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and stable video capture. Other features include the silent wave motor for quiet accurate autofocusing, and a rounded 9-blade diaphragm that offers stunning out-of-focus highlights (bokeh). The lens elements have been treated with Nikon's Super Integrated Coating - an optical lens coating process that maximizes light transmission while enhancing clarity and contrast. All of these world-class features add up to the AF-S 55-300 being an ideal lens for traveling or shooting close to home.

The UV filter is one of the most important filters to own and it should be available for every lens. The filter blocks the invisible UV rays which can cause a loss of sharpness. The use of the filter is particularly recommended for work in the mountains, at the ocean, and in areas with very clear air. The contrasts are heightened, and distorting fog is avoided. The Opteka HD² Multi-Coated UV Ultraviolet Haze Filter cuts haze for sharper black and white prints and corrects the blues and violets in color prints. The filter glass is colorless, and hence no increase in the exposure time is required.
Multi-coating can prevent light reflection, ghost light, internal reflection etc, making image clearer and sharper. It can dramatically improve image quality. This is specially important in digital cameras. Since the image sensors CCD or CMOS are highly susceptible to reflections, this stray light can ruin your photographs. Multi-coated glass benefit substantially reduced light reflections, resulting clearer image with greater contrast.
This type of filter is also eminently suitable as protection for the front lens, and because of its color-neutral properties it can remain on the camera lens permanently. A scratched front lens element can not be repaired; and replacement is costly. Exchanging a damaged UV filter for a new one is more economical than the purchase of a new lens.
