The Nikon AF VR Zoom-NIKKOR 80-400mm f/4.5-5.6D ED is a zoom lens originally built for Nikon DX format cameras, although it is compatible with the FX series and 35mm film cameras. This is a mid-range lens, and while it does have a number of advanced features, it lacks the more advanced functions found higher end lenses such as a Silent Wave Motor. The wide focal range of 80-400 mm combined with a 5x zoom make this a good choice for closeup images of distant subjects, and VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization technology make handheld shooting possible by accounting for up to 3 shutter speeds of movement. Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass provides improved resolution and contrast at all apertures. This lens is constructed to not rotate the filter during zooming.
