AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR is a compact zoom lens designed use with
compact DX-format DSLRs that offers a 27-82.5mm equivalent zoom range. This lens sports a versatile zoom range,
making it ideal for everything from tight interiors to everyday standard
imaging. Nikon has loaded this lens with
features, including its
improved Vibration Reduction II, a system which minimizes image blur caused by camera shake, and offers the equivalent
of shooting at a shutter speed 3.5 stops faster. Two extra-low dispersion (ED) lenses and three aspherical lens
elements pair in order to reduce the effects of distortion and chromatic
aberrations. The Super Integrated
Coating helps eliminate ghosting and unwanted flare. The Silent Wave Motor
design means you will always experience smooth and virtually silent
autofocusing without the exterior size of the lens changing. Full time manual focusing override is
available with the A-M focusing switch.
NIKKOR G LENS
NIKKOR's G line of
lenses are specifically engineered with no aperture ring. This enables easier operation and leads to
less mistakes because the aperture does not need to be set to a minimum.
lens design creates a more complex surface profile. This helps to greatly reduce spherical and
other optical aberrations. The design
further ensures consistent imaging performance throughout the entire focal
range, while delivering incredible sharpness up to the periphery of the
This switch is an
element which locks the focus ring during autofocus, allowing the behavior to
mimic a manual focus lens in manual focus mode.
When the focusing ring is rotated with a sufficient load you will experience
convenient manual focusing maneuvers.
SUPER INTEGRATED COATING
anti-reflective coating is an optical design feature which ensures superior
clarity and image brilliance, even in poor or unfavorable lighting
conditions. Nikon applies the
anti-reflective coating through a special process, layering the lens surface in
order to substantially reduce unwanted flare or ghosting. This process helps to ensure incredibly rich
image contrast and true color fidelity.
Nikon's Vibration Reduction technology
provides superb image stabilization for handheld macro shooting. This lens administers exceedingly clear,
natural images that remain crisp at greater distances. With the extended focal length, you will
enjoy enhanced quality in any photographic situation.
WAVE MOTOR (SWM)
Nikon's Silent Wave Motor technology
provides rapid auto-focusing while remaining exceedingly quiet and
accurate. "Traveling Waves"
are transformed into a rotational energy that focuses the optics.
