Super Integrated Coating (SIC)
Nikon’s SIC predates the latest nano-structure glass coatings, but it still does a decent job of fending off ghosting and flare in landscape photographs.
Close Range Correction (CRC)
The closest focus distance of just 25cm (measured from the focal plane mark on the camera body) helps with creating dramatic perspective effects, and the CRC system ensures optimum picture quality at short focus settings.
Focus distance scale
The focus distance scale and depth of field markings help with zone focusing, so you can leave autofocus out of the equation and be ready to shoot instantly.
