Nikon 18-300mm Features

  • Versatile, Ultra-High Power 16.7x Zoom Lens: Goes from wide-angle (27mm equivalent) all the way to super-telephoto (450mm equivalent) for maximum versatility and reach.
  • Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC): Enhances light transmission and offers superior color consistency and reduced flare.
  • Silent Wave Motor (SWM): A significant innovation in AF lens technology, Nikon's Silent Wave Motor uses ultrasonic (inaudible) vibrations - rather than a gear system - to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
  • Internal Focus (IF): All internal optical movement is limited to the interior of the non-extending lens barrel. This allows for a more compact, lightweight construction as well as a closer focusing distance.
  • Zoom Lock Switch: Secures the lens barrel at its minimum focal length, preventing the lens from extending during transport.
  • Nikon VR II (Vibration Reduction) Image Stabilization: Tailored to each lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter speeds slower than would otherwise be possible for dramatically sharper images and HD videos, even in low light.
  • M/A (Manual/Auto) focus mode switch: Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens.
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm: Renders a beautiful, natural background blur (Bokeh) at its wider aperture settings.
