Nikon launches 18-300mm zoom lens
Nikon has launched a new high-powered DX-format zoom lens with wide-angle to super-telephoto reach and Vibration Reduction. Boasting a 16.7x zoom ratio and 18-300mm focal range, the AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR is an all-rounder for photographers with a broad range of interests.
Simon Iddon, Product Manager for Enthusiast Products at Nikon UK says: “This new 18-300mm lens is ideal for photographers looking to travel light – it’s a versatile lens that allows you to capture a whole range of scenes with ease, thanks to its remarkable zoom range.”
Sharp and steady
Complementing the versatile focal range is Nikon’s second-generation Vibration Reduction system (VRII) — that allows substantially sharper handheld images across the zoom range and reduces image blur, even when taking extreme telephoto shots. Three Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass and three aspherical lens elements provide high resolution and contrast, and the nine blade rounded diaphragm opening promises to make out-of-focus elements blend together smoothly. Nikon's compact Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) claims to combine fast and precise auto focus with super-quiet operation.
Built to travel
A practical zoom-lock switch keeps the lens secure when not in use, and it boasts a metal mount with rubber sealing for protection against dust and moisture.
This lens comes with a lens case CL-1120 and hood HB-58.
