nikkor 18 135 mm lensNikon  introduced the versatile, affordable new 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor lens, further expanding Nikon's successful line of DX Nikkor lenses, engineered for use exclusively with Nikon's DX format digital SLR cameras. Developed for use with all Nikon D-series digital SLR Cameras, the 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S DX lens will be included as the compact, lightweight 7.5x zoom lens in the recently announced Nikon D80 10.2-megapixel digital SLR camera Outfit.

SLRGear has reviewed Nikkor 18-135 AF-S Nikkor lens and wrote:
"Build quality of the lens is excellent, perhaps not quite up to the level of the very best Nikkor optics, but far superior to the plasticky cheapness typical of kit lenses. Our test sample also showed little or no zoom creep, it maintained its zoom setting quite well, regardless of orientation. The internal focusing (IF) is also nice, in that the front element doesn't rotate while focusing, making this lens well-suited for use with polarizers or graduated neutral-density filters. While not a macro lens by any stretch, the 18-135 also focuses more closely than do many long-ratio zoom lenses, handy for those times you'd like to shoot a little closer to the subject, without reaching for your macro."

Press release from Nikon:

Nikon today introduced the versatile, affordable new 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor lens, further expanding Nikon's successful line of DX Nikkor lenses, engineered for use exclusively with Nikon's DX format digital SLR cameras. Developed for use with all Nikon D-series digital SLR Cameras, the 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S DX lens will be included as the compact, lightweight 7.5x zoom lens in the recently announced Nikon D80(TM) 10.2-megapixel digital SLR camera Outfit. The 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S DX has a broad focal length range (providing picture angle performance approximating a 28-200mm lens on a 35mm film SLR camera) that is suitable for a wide variety of shooting situations, ranging from wide-angle landscapes to portraits, recreational sports, action and close-ups.
Nikkor 18-135mm

This new lens offers a selection of Nikon's highly regarded technologies such as compact Silent Wave motor (AF-S) for super fast and quiet autofocus operation, Extra-Low Dispersion glass (ED) for minimized chromatic aberrations, and Internal Focusing (IF) for convenient and balanced handling. "The new 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S DX is an excellent, all-encompassing lens that can be an ideal companion to any Nikon digital SLR camera, especially the recently announced D80," said Edward Fasano, general manager for Marketing, SLR Systems Products at Nikon Inc. "The 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S DX demonstrates remarkable optical performance along with wonderful compactness," he added. Designed exclusively for use with DX Format digital SLR cameras, DX Nikkor lenses deliver a versatile range of angle-of-view, higher performance, and outstanding center-to-edge-to-corner image quality, while making possible smaller and lighter designs. The 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G ED-IF AF-S DX lens will be available beginning September 2006 for a suggested retail price of $485. The lens will also be sold packaged with the recently announced D80 10.2-megapixel digital SLR camera. The packaged outfit will have an estimated street price of $1299.95*, offering photographers substantial savings when purchased together.
