The AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 17–55 mm f/2.8D IF-ED’s ultra-fast, f/2.8 fixed aperture ensures stunning clarity, beautiful background blur (bokeh) and consistent exposure across its entire zoom range and opens the possibility of shooting in a wider variety of lighting scenarios—without a flash.

And advanced Nikon lens technologies help draw the full potential from any Nikon D-SLR camera.
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts “traveling waves” into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.
AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.
This is a NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF Nikkors do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
