The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR Lens from Nikon
is an all-in-one zoom lens capable of shooting wide angle to super
telephoto focal lengths. This lens has a zoom range of 18-300mm, which
provides the 35mm focal length equivalent of 27-450mm in the DX format,
making it useful in a wide range of shooting situations.
The lens utilizes a Silent Wave Motor for quick, quiet auto focusing for
photo and video as well as internal focusing that keeps the lens design
compact. Also, Vibration Reduction technology optically stabilizes the
image to reduce the effects of camera shake and movement providing the
equivalent of up to 4 additional shutter speed stops.
Helping with image quality are three aspherical and three extra-low
dispersion glass elements that will minimize aberrations and Nikon's
Super Integrated Lens Coating which reduces ghosting and flare while
maximizing contrast. The lens has 7 rounded diaphragm blades for smooth
out-of-focus areas and a 67mm front filter thread.
