Nikon AFS DX 18-300 f3.5-6.3G LENS ED VR Zoom Lens
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f3.5-6.3G ED VR is the perfect union of a compact, lightweight body combined with a superior level of optical performance for both images and video, enabling you to capture a diverse range of subjects and situations. Thoughtfully designed with innovations such as the three Extra-Low Dispersion glass elements, theAF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f3.5-6.3G ED VR is a portable lens that delivers brilliance on every count.
LEADING EDGE INNOVATION
TheAF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f3.5-6.3G ED VR has been meticulously designed with innovative features to deliver high quality images with stunning clarity, particularly when paired with high-pixel-count cameras. The three Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass element cuts the incidence of chromatic aberration so your images will not be blurry or clouded by colour fringes around the edges. Three aspherical lenses offer excellent aberration correction performance, so you can capture clean, crisp images with superb resolution.
GOODBYE SHAKE, HELLO SHARP IMAGES
TheAF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f3.5-6.3G ED VR’s Vibration Reduction (VR) function minimises camera shake by providing an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster*. With theAF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f3.5-6.3G ED VR, you can shoot the clear, precise images you desire, even at full zoom.
*Based on CIPA Standard.
A LIGHTWEIGHT, HIGH-POWERED MARVEL
No matter where you go, theAF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f3.5-6.3G ED VRis easy to carry around. This high-powered, 16.7x zoom lens weighs only around 550g and measures approximately 78.5mm (diameter) x 99mm (length). This compact and lightweight body was achieved by suppressing the open aperture at the maximum telephoto position to f/6.3, so the lens retains its portability without sacrificing performance.
HIGH-POWER ZOOM LENS COVERING 18-300 MM FOCAL-LENGTH RANGE
Angle of view is equivalent to that of a lens with a focal length of 27 to 450 mm in FX/35mm format, which is ideal for capturing diverse subjects with a single lens, while also offering portability taking advantage of the DX format.
SUPERIOR OPTICAL PERFORMANCE
With the employment of three ED glass elements and three aspherical lens elements, high image quality is attained throughout the zoom range. ED glass elements greatly reduce chromatic aberration even at telephoto positions, while aspherical lenses are particularly useful for correcting distortion at wide-angle positions.
COMPACT AND LIGHT BODY WHILE FEATURING HIGH-POWER ZOOM CAPABILITY
By suppressing the open aperture at the maximum telephoto position to f/6.3, a lighter, more compact body is realized, compared to the current AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR. AF operation is enabled throughout the aperture range including f/6.3.

VIBRATION REDUCTION (VR) ENHANCEMENT OF UP TO 4.0 STOPS*
Image blur caused by camera shake is effectively reduced by the built-in Vibration Reduction function that provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops* faster.
- * Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when the lens is attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
