Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm F/3.5-6.3G ED VR Wide Angle & Telephoto Lens

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR is an extremely versatile all-in-one lens which offers both wide-angle and super-telephoto capabilities. Equipped with specialized Vibration Reduction technology, the lens has been fully optimized for capturing high-resolution stills and Full HD videos with your Nikon DX-format Digital SLR.

Massive Zoom Range
With its large zoom range, you'll be able to capture just about anything - stills or frames, landscapes, portraits or wildlife. The range goes from wide-angle (27mm equivalent in 35mm) all the way to super-telephoto (450mm equivalent in 35mm) so you can capture life as it unfolds around you.

Smart Single IF Lens
The single IF lens only shifts the internal lens group during focusing. This means that the lens does not change in size during AF operation, allowing for closer focusing distance. Also included in the AF lens technology is a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) which uses ultrasonic vibrations, rather than a gear system, to focus the lens and provide an smooth, silent autofocus operation.

Vibration Reduction Technology
To help keep photos sharp and videos steady, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR features Nikon's Vibration Reduction technology. This provides 4.0 stops of blur-free handheld shooting so you can capture crisp and clear photos and steady videos. This camera tech is also a big advancement in low-light solutions which can slow down your shutter speed, without compromising on the overall sharpness.

AS & ED Glass Elements
Enhancing its superb optical performance are three Aspherical (AS) and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements which makes for maximum contrast and minimal lens flare. And a rounded 7-blade diaphragm creates beautiful, natural background blur - it's a fantastic all-rounder.

Key features:

  • Massive 16.7x zoom range
  • Capture high-resolution stills and Full HD videos
  • Vibration Reduction technology keeps photos sharp and videos steady
  • Ideal for any imagery capture
