Spanning wide-angle to super telephoto, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR from Nikon is an ideal single-lens solution for photographing in a wide variety of situations. Designed for DX-format cameras, this 27-450mm equivalent zoom features an advanced optical design comprising both aspherical and extra-low dispersion glasses, which help to reduce aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range for notable clarity and sharpness. A Super Integrated Coating has also been applied to suppress flare and ghosting when working in backlit or harsh lighting conditions. Benefitting the optics is a four stop-effective VR image stabilization system, which minimizes the appearance of camera shake in order to produce sharper handheld imagery. Additionally, a Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.

Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED V... Reviews
This lens met my objectives!
I wanted a lighter lens and slightly more compact for travel. This lens not only gave me a wider range of telephoto options with 18mm wide angel and 300mm telephoto but it is lighter weight, shorter and balances well on the camera! I wanted it for travel and can't wait to do that now.
18-300 Nikon lens
I can't wait to take this lens on some road trips and long hikes this summer It appears to be the do all one lens for what's coming next days I have been looking for. What I've seen so far it's going to be great
Okay walkaround lens
I got this to use with my Z FC. It says 18-300, but shooting side by side with my 50-250 Z lens, this lens produces a slightly smaller, slightly less detailed image. It should be noted that I'm pixel peeping, but I need to as I tend to crop a lot. If you don't, then this lens should be more than sharp enough. But you're clearly not getting the magnification Nikon is claiming, which is also important to me. For most people, and most uses, this lens would be very convenient and perfectly adequate. But for me, it doesn't really replace the 16-50/50-250 combo, which kit lenses though they may be, are excellent.
A word of caution
When I put my new 18-300mm Nikkor lens on my Nikon D850 and looked through the viewfinder, there looked like some horrible vignetting. But I took a couple of test shots and they turned out fine. I recommend using the screen for composing the shot.
Very Happy With Lens Choice
I got this lens to reduce the need to swap lens while shooting. I was concerned that the large focal range would mean softness or lack of performance. However, the lens has performed beautifully in all respects for the type of photography I do (mostly landscape). I also like not carrying as much weight around on hikes like I was with multiple lens.
Ok for outside shooting. Don't even try indoors/low light.
#1 B&H is great. Quick shipping, great service. #2 Was excited to get this lens, so I could get closer shows of bride/groom from way back behind the guests, and to be able to take more candid pics of people without being so close. I would probably give this a 2/5 as far as quality goes for my primary reason for getting it. It does take the occasional great photo as far as quality/bokeh goes, but out of 100 pics, maybe a couple decent ones. I'll keep using it until I can afford something better, but a little disappointed in a $700 lens that doesn't exactly do what I need it to do.
Improved Weight and Telephoto Range
I have replaced my last lens and love this one. It is significantly lighter weight and has an expanded wide angle at 18mm. It is also shorter which makes a better balance for camera and lens for me. I have been very pleased with the sharpness of the photos.
Great zoom lens!
I had been looking for a good zoom lens for my Nikon D5200 to replace my Nikon 55-300mm zoom and my 18-200mm zoom lenses. I'd really become frustrated with changing out lenses for close-up and distant shots. Didn't like carrying an extra lens on hikes and didn't like changing lenses in windy, dusty conditions. This lens fits the bill and does exactly what I hoped it would. Great lens and similar weight of my 55-300mm lens. I also like the lens lock feature. Couldn't be happier with this product and look forward to using it on future photography outings.
