    Nikon AF-S Nikkor DX 18-300mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens
    Nikon has launched the AF-S Nikkor 18-300mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR lens, a 16.7x super zoom for APS-C DSLRs. The 18-300mm offers the highest ever zoom ratio for a Nikon interchangeable lens, giving a 27-450mm equivalent range on one of the company's DX-format cameras. The lens is a much more complex design than the existing 18-200mm - utilizing 19 elements in 14 groups and, at 120mm long, is 23% longer. It features a 77mm filter thread. It's an excellent multi-use lens that can be used anywhere on any subject. The long-range 18 - 300mm focal length can cover everything from wide-angle shots to high-power zoom shots. It delivers the equivalent of 450mm of telephoto range and it's also great for close-up shots - as close as 1.48 feet from your subject at 300mm.

    Building on the popularity and versatility of Nikon’s telephoto zoom lens lineup which includes both the NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 and 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lenses, the new 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens is Nikon’s longest focal range ever, with an astounding 16.7X ultrahigh-ratio zoom range. The DX-format 18-300mm VR lens is surprisingly compact, lightweight and covers a focal range from wide-angle 18mm to super-telephoto 300mm, equivalent to a focal length of 27mm to 450mm in FX/35mm format. At the 300mm focal length setting, the lens large f/5.6 aperture enables photographers to shoot at faster shutter speeds with shallow depth-of-field. This new super telephoto zoom lens is ideal for taking stills when travelling and for all around general photography including landscapes, portraits and distant subjects. The 18-300mm lens is also excellent for recording HD video as it can be used for wide establishing shots, medium close-up shots and extreme telephoto sequences when the users want to separate the subject from the background.

    In addition to the obvious advantages of a long 16.7x telephoto zoom range, the lens also employs a zoom-lock switch, and 9-blade rounded diaphragm opening and three ED and aspherical lens elements. The zoom-lock switch helps to keep the lens secure when it is not in use, preventing it from extending and getting bumped or damaged. And utilizing a 9-blade rounded diaphragm allows for beautiful bokeh and blurred background effects in photos with a shallower depth of field. Having three ED glass elements and three aspherical elements means this lens will provide you and your camera with spectacular image quality, clarity and contrast in every frame you capture. It's suited for all levels of photography and video capture, from amateur to professional. Plus, it touts features like Nikon's Super Integrated Coating, internal focus, silent wave motor and M/A (manual/auto) focus mode switch.

    To capture stunningly sharp images with excellent clarity and colour reproduction or HD video that exhibits sharp critical focus with a dramatic depth of field, the new 18-300mm VR empower photographers with a variety of exclusive core NIKKOR technologies. Unit is equipped with Nikon’s Vibration Reduction (VR) II image stabilization system which provides the equivalent of a shutter speed approximately four stops faster. The built-in Vibration Reduction will help photographers create blur-free images and video while shooting handheld and in challenging lighting conditions. Two focus modes, manual-priority autofocus (M/A) and manual focus (M), are easily selected. When either lens is in manual-priority autofocus (M/A) mode, users will be able to instantly switch from autofocus to manual focus operation by simply rotating the focus ring, even during AF servo operation. Additionally 18-300mm feature an internal focusing system, providing fast focus without changing the length of the lens while retaining working distance through the focus range, and Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM) technology designed to deliver fast, accurate and quiet AF performance. The 18-300mm also boast Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating (SIC) which provides superb colour reproduction, colour consistency and reduced flaring.
