NikonNikon 18-55mm zoom lens : Nikon has added a new member to its family of Nikkor lenses with the AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, a general-purpose lens developed specifically to cater for users of entry-level DSLR cameras. The DX Nikkor zoom lens is compact, lightweight and affordable and incorporates a Silent Wave Motor for fast autofocus, and Vibration Reduction for enhanced low-light performance. The versatile 3x zoom lens covers the widely-used and popular focal range of 27mm to 82.5mm when mounted on any DX-format Nikon DSLR camera. Nikon’s own VR system minimizes the image blur caused by camera shake, stabilizing the image to allow shutter speeds of up to three stops slower than would be possible without VR.

AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
For the photographer, the experience is like using a lens that is three stops faster (as determined in Nikon tests) and enables dramatically sharper handheld shooting at dusk or at night, and in poorly-lit interiors. A further major advantage of VR, when incorporated in the camera lens, is that it produces a stable viewfinder image. This makes the process of framing and composition more accurate and less tiring.

Nikkor zoom lens - Hybrid aspherical element
In line with Nikon’s unrelenting drive to achieve superior optical performance, Nikon’s developers set strict, new engineering standards for the new lens, seeking to achieve greater overall resolution. The result is a newly-developed optical system that has been optimised for use with Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras. The lens incorporates a hybrid aspherical element to minimize distortion and Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating to ensure outstanding colour balance and reproduction with reduced ghosting.

Silent Wave Motor
Other features have been added to bring professional-grade performance to the enthusiast photographer. These include a compact Silent Wave Motor (SWM) that delivers fast, quiet autofocus operation and a seven-blade rounded diaphragm opening for rich, natural-looking out-of-focus backgrounds. Furthermore, the lens boasts a short closest-focus distance of 0.28 m/0.9 ft. throughout the entire zoom range.
