About this item

Designed exclusively for use on Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras, this new and extraordinarily versatile AF Zoom-Nikkor lens is perfect for an extremely wide variety of shooting situations ranging from tight sports, action and portraits to wide-angle landscapes.

For practical purposes, photographers will enjoy picture angle performance that approximates that of a 28-200mm lens on a 35mm film SLR. Advanced Nikon engineering, in particular the compact Silent Wave Motor, has enabled a highly compact lightweight design with excellent handling characteristics.

The optical design features a Nikon ED glass element and two hybrid aspherical lens elements, assuring high-resolution, high-contrast images while minimizing chromatic aberration, astigmatism and other forms of image degradation.

The lens' compact Silent Wave Motor offers wonderfully fast, smooth and quiet autofocus performance. Debuting with the D80 and available at significant savings when packaged with the D80 body, the quality and versatility of the 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G lens helps put the Nikon D80 in a class all its own.
