Nikon Middle East FZE has announced the release of the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300MM f/3.5-6.3G ED VR, a 16.7× high-power zoom lens compatible with Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras.

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR is a 16.7× high-power zoom, 18-300mm (angle of view equivalent to that of a 27-450mm lens in 35mm [135] or Nikon FX format) lens that covers a broad range of focal lengths, from wide-angle to super-telephoto. It is smaller and lighter for greater portability, making it a single lens that even those new to DSLR cameras can use to capture a wide variety of subjects, such as everyday snapshots, portraits and landscapes.

“The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR is an all-rounded lens that has been designed to deliver superior performance for images and videos across a wide range of focal lengths,” said Takashi Yoshida, Managing Director Nikon MEA. “The latest in an extensive NIKKOR range, the lens’ compact and lightweight design makes it a perfect balance of versatility and portability, ideal for travel and for photographers who are always on the move.”

In addition to superior optical performance for sharp and clear rendering throughout the entire zoom range, achieved with adoption of ED lens and aspherical lens elements, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300MM f/3.5-6.3G ED VR is equipped with a Vibration Reduction (VR) function that provides camera shake compensation equivalent to a 4.0-stop* increase in shutter speed.

When used with a DSLR camera boasting a high pixel count, the image quality performance enabled by these features is maximized for excellent definition and superior rendering. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300MM f/3.5-6.3G ED VR is also equipped with a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for fast and quiet autofocusing.
