TOKYO - Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR, a 16.7x high-power zoom lens compatible with Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras.

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR is a 16.7x high-power zoom, 18-300mm (angle of view equivalent to that of a 27-450mm lens in 35mm [135] or Nikon FX format) lens that covers a broad range of focal lengths, from wide-angle to super-telephoto. It is smaller and lighter for greater portability despite its support for a wide range of angles of view, making it a single lens that even those new to digital SLR cameras can use to enjoy capturing a wide variety of subjects, such as everyday snapshots, portraits and landscapes.

What's more, in addition to superior optical performance for sharp and clear rendering throughout the entire zoom range, achieved with adoption of ED lens and aspherical lens elements, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR is equipped with a vibration reduction (VR) function that provides camera shake compensation equivalent to a 4.0-stop* increase in shutter speed. Even when used with a digital SLR camera boasting a high pixel count, the image quality performance enabled by these features is maximized for excellent definition and superior rendering. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR is also equipped with a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for fast and quiet autofocusing.

  • *Measured in accordance with CIPA standards. Measured with a DX-format digital SLR camera at the maximum telephoto position.
