In a sincere response to the users’ requests and feedback, Nikon continuously delivers results, and builds trust by making the most of advanced optical technologies cultivated over its long history.
Amongst the various technologies that Nikon has developed include the Nano Crystal Coat for an anti-reflection coating, the Phase Fresnel (PF) lens elements with superior chromatic aberration compensation capability that makes lenses smaller and lighter, fluorite lens elements that offer superior chromatic aberration compensation and make telephoto lenses more compact, and also the Fluorine Coat on NIKKOR lenses to effectively repel dust, water, grease, dirt, etc.
