Designed as the ideal companion for everyday shooting, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II is a wide-angle to portrait-length 27-82.5mm-equivalent zoom for Nikon DX-format DSLRs. Its useful focal length range is suited to a wide variety of subject types and its retractable lens barrel design maintains a sleek form factor for walk-around shooting. The optical design features a Super Integrated Coating on individual elements, which helps to minimize reflections, flare, and ghosting for high contrast and color accuracy. Contributing to sharp imagery, Vibration Reduction minimizes the appearance of camera shake by four stops to benefit shooting handheld. Additionally, the Silent Wave Motor affords fast, precise, and quiet focusing performance.
