Nikon announces AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED lens
Nikon has announced a new high-powered DX-format zoom lens with wide-angle to super-telephoto reach and Vibration Reduction which will go on sale for £849.99 from June.
Boasting an ultra-high 16.7x zoom ratio and wide 18-300mm focal range, the new lens has been deemed an all-rounder for photographers with a broad range of interests.
Simon Iddon, Product Manager for Enthusiast Products, at Nikon UK said: “This new 18-300mm lens is ideal for photographers looking to travel light – it’s a versatile lens that allows you to capture a whole range of scenes with ease, thanks to its remarkable zoom range.”
All in One
With versatile wide-angle to super-telephoto reach, this 16.7x zoom lens is ideal for travel or for times when you only want to take one lens out with you. The 18-300mm focal range (FX-format/35mm equivalent: 27 to 450mm) easily covers most commonly used focal lengths, going further than many comparable lenses by offering 300mm reach and a maximum aperture of f/5.6 at the telephoto end of the range. From wide landscapes to tight portraits and action photography, this lens will capture it all.
Sharp and steady
Nikon’s second-generation Vibration Reduction system (VRII) allows substantially sharper handheld images across the zoom range and dramatically reduces image blur, even when taking extreme telephoto shots. Three Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass and three aspherical lens elements provide high resolution and superior contrast, and the nine blade rounded diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus elements blend together smoothly. Nikon's compact Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) combines fast and precise auto focus with quiet operation.
Built to travel
A practical zoom-lock switch keeps the lens secure when not in use, and it boasts a metal mount with rubber sealing for protection against dust and moisture.
This lens comes with a lens case CL-1120 and hood HB-58. RRP: £849.99 / €1002.00. Sales start date: 28th June 2012.
