Product Description

This 5.8x zoom, designed exclusively for use with Nikon’s DX-format, features Nikon’s VR image stabilization and is perfect for portraits and action.


• Wide-ratio 5.8x zoom: Compact, versatile and ideal for a broad range of shooting situations, ranging from interiors and landscapes to beautiful portraits—a perfect everyday zoom.
• An ED-(Extra-low Dispersion) glass element: Minimizes chromatic aberration, contributing to superior optical performance.
• Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC): Enhances light transmission and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare.
• Close focusing to 1.48 feet: Creative close-up photography is possible throughout the entire zoom range.
• Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization: Vibration Reduction, engineered specifically for each VR NIKKOR lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 3 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible, assuring dramatically sharper still images and video capture.
• Aspherical lens element: Virtually eliminates coma and other types of lens aberration, further improving image integrity.
• Exclusive Nikon Silent Wave Motor (SWM): Enables fast, accurate, and quiet autofocus.
• Rounded 7-blade diaphragm: Renders more natural appearance of out-of-focus image elements.
