About the Nikon 18-55mm

An ultracompact, lightweight standard zoom lens with a 3x focal range that is ideal for everyday photography, offers a remarkable cost-to-performance ratio and features optics optimized for use with Nikon digital SLRs. It is ideally suited to the new Nikon D50.

The lens offers users the popular 18-55mm focal length range, which conveniently covers everything from tight indoor portraits to standard snap shots. (The picture angle is equivalent to a 27-82.5mm lens in 35mm format.) The newly developed compact SWM (Silent Wave Motor) has given rise to an ultracompact lightweight design that offers excellent handling characteristics. Including thenew SWM, the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED measures a compact Ø69 x 74mm (2.7 x 2.9 in.) and weighs approximately 210g (6.8 oz.).

For optics, one ED glass element and one hybrid aspherical lens element guarantee high-resolution, high-contrast images while minimizing chromatic aberration, astigmatism and other forms of distortion. The new SWM built into the lens offers the smooth and quiet autofocus performance that users have come to expect from our existing SWM.

By using this lens and the new AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED lens, photographers have a focal-length range from wide-angle 18mm to telephoto 200mm (equivalent to a 27-300mm lens in 35mm format) that is well-suited to a wide variety of shooting situations. The useful range and high-quality performance ofthis lens will expand the photographic horizons of Nikon Digital SLR owners. The AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED lens will be simultaneously released with the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED lens

Note: This lens is not compatible with 35mm [135] or IX240 format film cameras.
