The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR Lens is a powerful DX-format 16.7x zoom with super-telephoto reach. Offering a broad 18–300mm focal length range, this compact ‘walkabout’ lens is ideal when you want to travel light and still capture diverse perspectives. Perfect for travel and amateur sports or wildlife photography, the design of this lens keeps the body remarkably compact without sacrificing image quality. ED glass and aspherical lens elements ensure high resolution and contrast; Nikon’s Vibration Reduction system delivers clear images, even when shooting handheld at the super-telephoto end of the range. A practical zoom-lock switch keeps the lens secure when you’re on the move.
