Nikon AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
Follow your creative instincts wherever they take you with the new AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR. Featuring a stepping motor – a first*1 for NIKKOR lenses – and built-in Vibration Reduction, the 18-55mm*2 lens lets you seize every photo opportunity with speed and stealth. Perfect for Nikon’s D3000-series and D5000-series*3 cameras, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR’s light, compact design makes it easy to capture any moment.
QUICK AND QUIET
Autofocus (AF) movements are now smoother than ever before with NIKKOR’s first*1 lens with a stepping motor. The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR accelerates phase-detection AF speeds and contrast-detection AF speeds. With a reduction in noise within the AF drive, this lens is great for shooting stills and even better for videos.
PERFECTION IN EVERY PIXEL
With 2 aspherical lens elements, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR offers superior optical performance that minimises lens aberrations and distortions. Every captured image is portrayed in remarkable clarity. Built-in Vibration Reduction (VR) compensates for shake caused by hand-held movements and provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster*4, enabling you to capture sharper and crisper images, even from a moving vehicle.
EFFICIENT AND ERGONOMIC DESIGN
Adopting a new settings system on the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, you can now access the options for Auto Focus/Manual Focus and VR right from the camera’s menu*5. This eliminates unintentional setting changes that may occur and helps create a smoother, more seamless shoot. It measures only 64.5mm (diameter) by 62.5mm (length) when retracted, and has a weight of approximately 205g. With a retractable lens mechanism, this lens is highly lightweight and portable.
