Nikon af-p dx Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6g vr lens
QUICK AND QUIET
Autofocus (AF) movements are now smoother than ever before with NIKKOR’s first lens with a stepping motor. The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR accelerates phase-detection AF speeds and contrast-detection AF speeds. With a reduction in noise within the AF drive, this lens is great for shooting stills and even better for videos.
PERFECTION IN EVERY PIXEL
With 2 aspherical lens elements, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR offers superior optical performance that minimises lens aberrations and distortions. Every captured image is portrayed in remarkable clarity. Built-in Vibration Reduction (VR) compensates for shake caused by hand-held movements and provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster, enabling you to capture sharper and crisper images, even from a moving vehicle.
EFFICIENT AND ERGONOMIC DESIGN
Adopting a new settings system on the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, you can now access the options for Auto Focus/Manual Focus and VR right from the camera’s menu. This eliminates unintentional setting changes that may occur and helps create a smoother, more seamless shoot. It measures only 64.5mm (diameter) by 62.5mm (length) when retracted, and has a weight of approximately 205g. With a retractable lens mechanism, this lens is highly lightweight and portable.
1) AF-P LENSES REALIZE FAST AND QUIET AF OPERATION VIA THE ADOPTION OF A STEPPING MOTOR FOR AF DRIVE
A stepping motor built into the lens contributes to fast AF speed and quiet, smooth focusing operation.
As AF-P lenses incorporate a stepping motor, the number of compatible cameras are limited. For compatible cameras, some models require a firmware update.
2) COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT, DX-FORMAT COMPATIBLE, 3.1X NORMAL ZOOM LENSES WITH 18-55 MM* FOCAL-LENGTH RANGE AND F/3.5-5.6 MAXIMUM APERTURE
The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR employs a retractable lens mechanism as with the current AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II, ensuring a compact and light, highly portable body.
3) TWO ASPHERICAL LENS ELEMENTS ARE EMPLOYED TO DELIVER SUPERIOR OPTICAL PERFORMANCE WITH MINIMAL LENS ABERRATIONS
The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR employs an optical system that provides the optical performance equivalent to that of the highly evaluated AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II.
4) VIBRATION REDUCTION (VR) SYSTEM OF THE AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55MM F/3.5-5.6G VR PROVIDES AN EFFECT EQUIVALENT TO A SHUTTER SPEED 4.0 STOPS FASTER
The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR realizes an effect equivalent to 4.0 stops faster based on CIPA Standard, which is a measurement method of blur-correction effect common to most camera/lens manufacturers.
5) ADOPTING A SETTING SYSTEM USING THE CAMERA MENUS, LENS SETTINGS CAN BE PERFORMED ON THE CAMERA
The focus mode switch and VR switch that are less frequently used have been eliminated, so AF/MF selection and VR ON/OFF can now be performed with the camera menus, preventing unwanted setting change caused by unintentional switch operation. The status of settings can be confirmed in the information display.
