The lens offers such features as a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) with a compact rod-type design that provides fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing; an ED glass element that minimizes chromatic aberration and produces a superior optical performance; a hybrid aspherical element that delivers high resolution and contrast; and a seven-blade rounded diaphragm that produces more natural out-of-focus highlights. The focus mode switch, meanwhile, makes it a breeze to switch quickly between autofocus (A) and manual (M) focus. Finally, the lens’s Super Integrated Coating minimizes ghosting and flare to provide an even higher contrast and more vivid images, even in challenging light conditions. All Nikon lenses carry a five-year warranty.

worked great–until it broke We purchased the D40 kit just over a year ago. I have been thrilled with the camera and lenses it came with. Until–I was shooting pictures of the kids and the lens locked up for no apparent reason. Turns out the lens is pretty much shot (we think the motor in the lens went bad) so we have no choice but to buy a new one. The Nikor lenses come with a five year guarantee, IF YOU RETURN THE CARD WITHIN 10 DAYS OF PURCHASE. Unfortunately we just realized this so no luck with the warranty. I…
