Nikkor 18-55 VR lensNikon has added a new member to its renowned family of Nikkor lenses
with the introduction of 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 digital SLR cameras. The compact, lightweight affordable
lens 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 digital SLR camera.
Nikon’s own VR (Vibration Reduction) system minimizes the image blur caused by camera shake, stabilising the image to allow shutter speeds of up to three stops slower than would be possible without VR (as determined in Nikon tests). The lens also enables dramatically sharper handheld shooting in low light conditions..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.

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.

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.

With compact dimensions of Ø73 x 79.5 mm and a low weight of approx. 265 g, this new lens is easy to handle and carry.
