NIKON AF-S DX 18-300MM F3.5-5.6G ED VR

  • All-in-One DX-format Lens
  • 16.7x Zoom Ratio
  • Vibration Reduction
  • Filter Diameter: 77mm
  • Ultra-high-power 16.7x all-in-one zoom lens with Nikon's second-generation Vibration Reduction (VR II) for beautiful, sharp images in varied shooting situations
  • Surprisingly compact and lightweight, an extremely versatile all-in-one DX-format lens
  • Powerful All-in-One Zoom Lens:
  • From wide-angle groups to ultra-high-power zoom shots, look no further than the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
  • Boasting the longest reach of any NIKKOR all-in-one zoom lens, it delivers the equivalent of 450mm-enough reach to bring the most distant action up close
  • Nikon's second generation VR II technology ensures every photo and HD video is razor-sharp, and Nikon's advancements in lens design deliver consistent, exceptional performance in any setting
  • Also great for close-up shooting
  • No subject is too far or too close: 450mm (equivalent) of super-telephoto reach:
  • For more reach in an all-in-one lens
  • Its astounding 16.7x zoom range goes from a wide 27mm equivalent, great for group shots, vast landscapes and more, all the way to a super-telephoto 450mm equivalent, enough reach for wildlife photography and more
  • The lens can focus as close as 1.48-ft. from your subject at 300mm
  • This ultra-high-power zoom capability means no subject or composition will ever be out of reach again
  • Sharp, beautiful images in any light: VR II image stabilization:
  • At super-telephoto focal lengths, even the slightest camera movement can cause image blur
  • Fortunately, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18?300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR features Nikon's second-generation Vibration Reduction technology (VR II) to ensure every handheld photo and HD video is razor sharp
  • Shoot at shutter speeds 4-times slower than otherwise possible, a major advantage in low-light situations where a slower shutter speed means brighter, richer images
  • Nikon innovations for stunning images:
  • From its Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing to its Aspherical (AS) lens elements and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements for maximum contrast and minimum lens flare and ghosting-you can expect a lifetime of consistent brilliant performance from the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

  • Oh Yah !

I had 3 different lens that were in the same range quality wise. One lens to unite them all! No joke, this lens is absolutely great, low lighting is still pretty good and the sharpness is pretty good. especially when you can be at a foot from your subject at 300 mm, pretty cool. It's a great lens to walk around the city, especially if you own a black rapid strap. the lens has a lock at 18 mm which is perfect to go with the strap. Like the last review the build in flash is awful at wide settings but I own a speed light so no problem there. I recommend this lens for everyday shooting.

  • Not the Best but Perfect for beginners

As a begginer, this lens is a whole lot better than my 18-105, not just for the range but for the sharpness as well.

  • Great travel lens...except for this...

...very annoying issue. Forget about taking pictures at the wide end from 18 to around 27 when using built in flash. The lens is too long, and you'll get a shadow at bottom centre. Use of a dedicated flash unit will make this a non-issue...but do you want to carry around a flash in addition to this admittedly heavy lens when travelling? Potential problem example: you're in a museum, can't use a tripod, and can't physically back up to capture the picture you want. No dedicated flash? Not a great result. (Of course, your mileage may vary; I'm using it on a D90.) The other issue is that it isn't a lightweight. May not be an issue for some, but could be a dealbreaker when you think about lugging this around all day! the daylight, as a general lens, it's great. Not having to worry about changing lenses in less than optimal conditions...beach shots, anybody?...means you can snap nice landscapes, then zoom into the boat on the horizon. Image quality is fine for the enthusiast (just my humble opinion), so if you're aware of the limitation, you should be quite happy with this lens.
