The Nikon Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II is a popular “walk-around” zoom lens with an extraordinarily compact and lightweight build that gives superior portability. It is designed for use with Nikon DX-format SLRs, this type G AF-S DX lens with built-in CPU and F mount is ideal for shooting everyday photos and HD movies. The 3x zoom covers the commonly used focal length range of 18–55mm; the lens is constructed with 11 elements in 8 groups (including 1 aspherical lens elements) and 7 (rounded diaphragm opening). Autofocus is controlled by Silent Wave Motor and separate focus ring for manual focus, which is an advantage when shooting movies. Regardless of its compact size, this lens still has Nikon’s Vibration Reduction system for blur-free images, whether you’re zooming in to capture distant subjects, or taking a wide-angle group portrait in low light. Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm VR II also has a retractable lens mechanism allowing you to retract the lens if not in use. It is compatible only with APS-C DSLR Cameras.
Product Features in Detail
Popular 3x zoom lens
Covers the 18–55mm focal length range (35mm equivalent: 27–82.5mm). Perfect for diverse everyday photos and HD movies.
Vibration Reduction (VR) system
Enables more stable handheld shooting and lets you shoot at up to four stops slower.
Nikon quality images
Designed specifically for use with Nikon DX-format D-SLR sensors, this lens produces sharp photos and videos. An aspherical lens element minimises spherical aberration and other forms of distortion, while ensuring high resolution and contrast.
SWM (Silent Wave Motor)
For fast, precise, and super-quiet operation.
Retractable lens mechanism
Enables superior portability by allowing you to retract the lens when it’s not in use.
Ultra-compact and lightweight
An ideal walk-around lens, the body weighs just 195 g. The lens is a mere 59.5 mm long when retracted, and just 76 mm when extended and in use.
Aspherical lens elements
Aspherical lenses virtually eliminate the problem of coma and other types of lens aberration — even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting the distortion in wideangle lenses. In addition, use of aspherical lenses contributes to a lighter and smaller lens design.
Soft-focus shots of point light sources create regular polygonal shapes that reflect the shape of the opening created by the diaphragm blades. A rounded diaphragm uses blades designed to create a circular opening for a more beautiful soft-focus effect.
The G-type NIKKOR has no aperture ring; aperture should be selected from camera body.
