Designed with state-of-the-art optical technology such as Silent Wave Motor (SWM) and Vibration Reduction, your photos and HD videos will feature breathtaking detail and definition at any distance.
Superior image quality is a result of NIKKOR’s advances in lens design. Through the use of Aspherical lens elements and Extra-low Dispersion glass, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR delivers maximum contrast, excellent sharpness and minimum lens flare and ghosting. Our Silent Wave Motor (SWM)’s ultra-quiet autofocussing complements the refined optics by ensuring that your subjects are always in precise focus.
For effortless performance, this powerful zoom lens features our Vibration Reduction image stabilisation. This advancement greatly reduces camera shake and provides a performance enhancement equivalent to 3.5 stops*. You’ll capture stunningly sharp photos and HD videos when shooting handheld, as well as images with crisp edges when shooting in low-light conditions.
*Based on CIPA Standard. The value is achieved when: DX-format lenses are attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera, FX-format compatible lenses are attached to an FX-format digital SLR camera, and zoom lenses are set at the maximum telephoto position.
