Size Name:18-55 mm

Product Description

Picture shows a young girl, wearing brightly coloured clothes and a backpack, on a gravel track leading to a bridge in woodland, looking back towards the camera.
A superb 'walk-around' lens; VR II vibration reduction ensures steadier stills and HD videos.

A popular lens for a wide range of subjects, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5–5.6G VR II from Nikon has just become even more attractive to D-SLR enthusiasts. More compact and portable than its predecessor, this multi-purpose retractable lens is the easy way to capture the best of the moment. The 3x zoom combined with advanced Nikon technology offers superb optical quality and versatility, delivering high-contrast photos and movies. Suited to everything from flattering portraits to action-packed events, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5–5.6G VR II is the ideal lens to accompany you on your travels.

The Popular Zoom

Perfect for diverse everyday photos and HD movies, the 3x wide-angle to medium-telephoto zoom covers the most commonly used focal lengths[1]. Whether you're shooting wide group photos, portraits or landscapes, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II delivers sharp, colour-rich results. For stunning close-ups you can focus as close as 25cm[2] from the subject throughout the entire zoom range. Discover just how far this flexibility and your creativity can take you.

Picture shows a man wearing a suit and a woman wearing a wedding dress, sitting on grass with a background of yellow-leaved bushes.
Ideal for a broad range of still and video shooting situations, this 3x wide-angle to medium-telephoto zoom is ultra-compact.

Sharp Shooting

Featuring Nikon’s exclusive second generation Vibration Reduction system (VR II), this ultra-lightweight lens can provide images free of blur due to camera-shake at all focal lengths. Designed to enable stable hand-held shooting, Nikon’s VR technology allows you to use shutter speeds up to 4 stops slower than would otherwise be possible, resulting in sharp images, even in low light. Being an optical system, the viewfinder image is also stabilised, enabling more accurate autofocus acquisition and framing. So whether you are zooming in to capture faraway subjects or shooting wide-angle group portraits in low light, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II will deliver crisp, clear shots.

Digital Vision

To meet the demanding needs of digital photography, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens is engineered with the highest precision. The lens comprises eleven elements in eight groups, in a design including one aspherical lens element. For a soft rendering effect the iris diaphragm has seven rounded blades, producing high-quality natural backgrounds. The aspherical lens element helps eliminate problems of distortion and other types of lens aberrations to ensure high resolution, superior contrast, and deliver exceptional image quality.

Picture shows a close-up view of roses.
Leverage your creativity with focusing as close as 25cm throughout the entire zoom range.

Silent Precision

Nikon's AF-S technology is yet another reason why photographers like NIKKOR lenses. Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) converts traveling waves into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that’s extremely accurate and super-quiet. A huge advantage when shooting movies, fast and quiet autofocus means that for discrete shooting you can set up the shot in an instant and camera focusing won’t disturb sensitive subjects like wildlife.

Carry Anywhere

Boasting a retractable lens mechanism, this portable lens fits neatly in any camera bag. Measuring just 59.5mm in length when retracted and 76mm when extended, this is a lens that’s small in size and big on convenience. With compact dimensions and weighing only 195g you’ll be forgiven for double-checking you actually have it with you.

Compact, lightweight and versatile, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens from Nikon is a great all-rounder for entry-level D-SLR photographers.

[1] The actual focal length of 18-55mm has an angle of view equivalent to that of a 27-82.5mm lens in 35mm [135] format.
[2] Minimum focus distance is 25cm in manual focus mode and 28cm in autofocus mode.
