A Superb Multi-Task Lens

Nikon DX Nikkor 18-300mm ED VR Lens Nikon DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR superzoom lens featuring 16.7x of zoom plus VR II stabilization. A superb multi-task lens and can be used any subject anywhere. The large-range focal length of 18 - 300mm covers everything starting at wide-angle thru high-power zoom images. It provides the 35mm equivalent telephoto range of 450mm and it's also good for close-up photos as near as only 1.48 feet away from your subject using 300mm.

Adding to the obvious benefits of its long reach 16.7x zoom telephoto, the lens also features a rounded 9-blade diaphragm, plus three aspherical and ED lens elements. A zoom-lock helps in keeping the lens in place when not being used, keeping it from automatically extending and becoming bumped or damaged. And employing a rounded 9-blade diaphragm delivers beautiful bokeh with background effects that are blurred in images containing a shallower field depth.

Featuring three separate ED glass elements plus three separate aspherical elements allows lens to provide you with spectacular clarity, quality, and contrast for every photo you shoot. It's well suited for every level of still and video images, from amateur thru professional photographer. Additionally, it features things such as internal focus, the Nikon Super Integrated Coating, a silent wave motor plus M/A (manual/auto) focusing mode mode switch. June 14, 2012
