NikonNikon AF-S DX 18-55mm G ED lens introduction : Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the introduction of the Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED lens, an ultra compact, lightweight standard zoom lens with a 3x focal range that is ideal for everyday photography, offers a remarkable cost-to-performance ratio and features optics optimized for use with Nikon digital SLRs. It is ideally suited to the new Nikon D50. The lens offers users the popular 18-55mm focal length range, which conveniently covers everything from tight indoor portraits to standard snap shots. The newly developed compact SWM (Silent Wave Motor) has given rise to an ultra compact lightweight design that offers excellent handling characteristics.

Including the new SWM, the Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED measures a compact Ø69 x 74mm (2.7 x 2.9 in.) and weighs approximately 210g (6.8 oz.). For optics, one ED glass element and one hybrid aspherical lens element guarantee high-resolution, high-contrast images while minimizing chromatic aberration, astigmatism and other forms of distortion. The new SWM built into the lens offers the smooth and quiet autofocus performance that users have come to expect from our existing SWM.
