Lens brightness and image stabilizer
The lens brightness and aperture value is f/2,8.
This aperture value indicates that the lens is very bright.  This will make it so much easier shooting in darker environments where you do not want or can use flash lighting, for example in churches or at different sports venues.
The lens lacks image stabilization, which otherwise os good for avoiding the blur that can occur when using slow shutter speeds. Since the lens is bright, with good aperture value, the lack of image stabilization might not be that big of a deal, although a image stabilizer is always an advantage to have.

Text from Nikon:"This compact, versatile Micro lens for close-up, copy work and general photography provides continuous autofocus from infinity to life-size (1:1).

Compact, versatile Micro-NIKKOR lens for close-up, copy work and general photography.

Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables accurate, high-speed and quiet autofocus operation.

ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass element offer superior sharpness and color correction by effectively minimizing chromatic aberration.

Nikon´s Nano Crystal Coat virtually eliminates internal reflections across a wide range of wavelengths for even greater image integrity.

Optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness on both the Nikon FX-format (23.9 x 36mm) and DX-format image sensors.

M/A Focus Mode allows fast, smooth transitions, from autofocus to manual operation.

Provides continuous autofocus from infinity to life-size (1:1 reproduction ratio).

Two aspherical elements virtually eliminate coma and other types of lens aberration even at the widest aperture.

Internal Focusing (IF) design allows faster, smoother autofocusing and eliminates barrel length changes for consistent handling—design also eliminates front element rotation, enabling easier use of polarizers and Nikon´s Wireless Close-Up Speedlight System.

Super Integrated Coating (SIC) delivers superior color performance, while substantially reducing ghosting and flare.

Rounded 9-blade diaphragm for more natural appearance of out-of-focus image elements. "
