The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, is a DX-NIKKOR zoom lens with built-in Silent Wave Motor (SWM) and Vibration Reduction (VR). This compact, lightweight and affordable 3x zoom NIKKOR lens offers remarkable versatility and covers the essential focal range of 18 to 55mm. When mounted on any DX-format Nikon digital SLR camera, the picture angle is equivalent to that produced by a 27 to 82.5mm focal length lens on a 35mm-format film camera or Nikon FX-format camera.
Nikon’s VR system minimizes the image blur caused by camera shake, providing the ability to shoot at shutter speeds up to three stops slower than would otherwise be possible.* And Nikon’s VR technology enables dramatically sharper handheld shooting at dusk or at night, or even in poorly lit interiors. Another major advantage of Nikon’s VR function is that it produces a stable viewfinder image. This makes the process of framing and composition much more convenient and accurate. *As determined in Nikon performance tests
Superior optical performance and greater overall resolution is achieved through Nikon’s strict engineering standards and newly developed optical system that is optimized for use with Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras. Incorporating a hybrid aspherical lens element, the new AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR minimizes image-degrading distortion, and Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating ensures outstanding colour balance and reproduction while greatly reducing ghosting and flare.
An ultra-compact Silent Wave Motor built into the lens body ensures fast, quiet autofocus operation. The seven-blade rounded diaphragm opening imparts a rich, natural look to out-of-focus elements. Furthermore, it boasts a short closest focus distance of 0.28m throughout the entire zoom range.
With compact dimensions of 73 x 79.5mm and a low weight of approx. 265g, this new lens is easy to handle and carry.
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR is a significant addition to the DX-NIKKOR lens lineup, offering digital photographers enhanced flexibility for a wide range of applications.
Note: DX-NIKKOR lenses are engineered and optimized for use on Nikon DX-format and FX-format digital SLR cameras. When mounted on an FX-format digital SLR, the camera’s DX-Crop Mode is automatically engaged, altering the image capture area accordingly. DX-NIKKOR lenses are not compatible with 35mm  or IX240 [APS] format film cameras.
