If you want a single lens that can cover every imaginable shooting situation, from wide-angle group shots all the way to ultra-high-power zoom shots, look no further than the new AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18–300mm. Boasting the longest reach of any NIKKOR all-in-one zoom lens, it delivers the equivalent of 450mm of super-telephoto power— enough reach to bring the most distant action up close. Nikon’s second generation Vibration Reduction (VR II) image stabilization ensures every photo and HD video is razor-sharp, and Nikon’s advanced lens technologies deliver consistent, exceptional performance in any setting. It’s even great for close-up shooting (as close as 1.48 ft from your subject at 300mm). Even more amazing, the AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-300mm does all this in a surprisingly compact, lightweight lens.
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
Nikon Silent Wave Motor
A significant innovation in AF lens technology, Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor uses ultrasonic (inaudible) vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
M/A Focus Mode Switch
When fine manual focusing is needed, simply rotate the lens focus ring—M/A mode allows you to seamlessly override the AF system with virtually no time lag.
AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.
Super Integrated Coating
Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and reduced lens flare.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion Glass)
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
That’s all about the Nikon 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor Lens. This Lens is available in Amazon.com.
