I just read in [Wikipedia](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nikon_compatible_lenses_with_integrated_autofocus-motor

Nikon VR/Sigma OS/Tamron VC/Tokina VCM: Optical image stabilization, also called Vibration Reduction, indicated green background, a system used to compensate for vibration and other camera movement.

And I couldn't find any reference to that "green background". What does that mean ?

    @chills42 - Interesting, I never thought of too localized in time. I need to think in 4D more :) – Itai Sep 10 '12 at 14:21
  • @chills42 Yes, I didn't thought of it being too localized because I though it was a new(old) technology that I never heard off... – woliveirajr Sep 10 '12 at 14:25
  • Its too localized in the sense that the question only had merit in relation to a specific wikipedia article, one which could easily be corrected (if it indeed was incorrect), thereby also making the question of value only for a very limited time. Too Localized was the correct closure option. – jrista Sep 10 '12 at 18:36

    @woliveirajr it's nothing against you, it was a valid question until it was answered :) – chills42 Sep 10 '12 at 19:07

It is poorly written. Indicated Green Background refers to the list below where lenses models with stabilization are highlighted with a green background like the AF-S 16-35mm in the wide-angle section:

    :) Thanks, now I understood... I edited wikipedia to better phrase it. – woliveirajr Sep 10 '12 at 13:49
  • Great! I was about to do that after you accepted the answer so to not confuse people more :) – Itai Sep 10 '12 at 13:51

    Thus rendering this question completely redundant ;) – Matt Grum Sep 10 '12 at 14:01
  • Good catch @Itai – camflan Sep 10 '12 at 16:24

It looks like a mistake. Remove "indicated green background" from the statement and it is correct.
