The Nikon 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G AF-S VR DX is an all-in-one superzoom lens for Nikon DX cameras and alternative to the Nikon 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S VR DX. Key features include:
Excellent all-in-one superzoom
4-stop vibration reduction
Fast, nearly silent autofocus
Smaller Size & Weight. This model doesn’t replace the 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S VR DX, but rather offers an option that’s 0.8" shorter in length and just over 0.5 lbs lighter.
All-In-One Lens. This lens is designed for photographers who want one lens to cover the entire range and do a decent job at it. With a focal length equivalent to 27-450mm after crop factor, this lens definitely delivers that. Please note that you sacrifice some image quality and speed for the all-in-one convenience.
Vibration Reduction. The vibration-reduction feature provides four stops of correction, allowing you to shoot at lower shutter speeds without fear of camera shake.
Silent Wave Autofocus Motor. The built-in autofocus motor provides fast, nearly silent performance. The AF/M switch allows you to lock the focus ring during autofocus while still allowing manual focusing when the ring is turned.
High-Quality Optics. Three extra-low dispersion (ED) elements minimize chromatic aberrations while maintaining optimal sharpness and contrast. Additionally, three aspherical lens elements reduce coma and other aberrations while correcting distortion.
