As an ultra-light lens with a cap-less design, it is undeniably the first lens you’ll reach for, no matter the situation.
With a 3x normal zoom lens that covers the most frequently used focal lengths (approximately 27 to 81 mm in 35mm format), the CX-format 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM will deliver quality results every single time. The short minimum focus distance required means you can get much closer to your subject – perfect for stunning close-ups with beautifully blurred backgrounds. The Vibration Reduction (VR) function ensures your photos remain sharp.

1. 1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM (27-81mm lens in 35mm format)
1 NIKKOR VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD-ZOOM is the obvious choice for anyone who has a need for speed, flexibility and outstanding image quality. Featuring a unique capless design, this thin and compact 3x zoom makes the ideal “standard” lens when portability and responsiveness are of prime importance. Available in the same colors and design to match Nikon 1’s high-quality exterior, this lens supports all Nikon 1 Series cameras.
The capless design eliminates needless fumbling when the prized moment is at hand. Power on and the cover opens while the lens extends, ready to shoot. Power off and the lens flattens to its minimum size. As an added benefit, you don’t need a lens hood, allowing you to photograph backlit subjects and in bright sunlight with reduced flare.
The high resolution and beautiful bokeh produce detailed images with delightful expression, from expansive landscapes to charming portraits. In addition, the maximum reproduction rate of 0.55x (in 35mm format) and minimum focus distance of 0.2 m (0.7 ft.) — or only 0.14 m (5.4 in.) from the front of the lens — combine to produce impressive close-ups like those taken with a macro lens.
Fast and silent power zoom is controlled via a dedicated ring, making the lens ideal for both stills and movies. Moreover, optical Vibration Reduction (VR) ensures images free of camera-shake blur when shooting at slow shutter speeds. VR also steadies the view on the LCD monitor, facilitating composition and accurate positioning of the focus area.
