The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens features the longest reach among the NIKKOR all-in-one zoom line. With a 35mm equivalent zoom range of 27mm - 450mm , go from a wide angle for group shots, to a long telephoto range capable of capturing most far way subjects. The compact design makes the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–300mm extremely portable, while the second generation VR II technology ensures that every photo and HD video capture is razor sharp. Additional features include a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocus, plus Aspherical (AS) lens elements and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements for maximum contrast and minimum lens flare and ghosting. Designed for Nikon DX format cameras, it can also be attached to FX cameras though image cropping will occur.
