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
Good lens for traveling
Just enough extra zoom without needing a tripod. Easy to travel with.
Wide and zoom in one with great clarity
Great travel lens
Easy to order great delivery time
I have been looking at this lens ever since it came out, and finally took the plunge. It is everything I hoped for. With a focal range of 18-300mm it is the ultimate lens for theme parks, zoos, state and national parks, etc. I can always get the shot, no matter how quick it comes up and never miss one while changing lenses again.
Lens for my Nikon, wanting to take pics of my kiddos sports. Easy to use, quick service
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.
A great lens
The lens performs well at near and far zooms. I did some basic sharpness tests and got good results. I love the 18mm (28mm DX) and need the 300mm (460mm DX). I have noticed reviews of lack of sharpness and pincushion distortion. And, in my first attempt to use the lens out of the box I noticed that these were in fact characteristics of the lens. However, as Nikon recommends, I then upgraded my D500 to the latest firmware for Camera (C) and Lens Distortion (LD), and in the camera I turned on Auto Distortion Control, All issues went away. The lens is now performing excellently. Sharpness has returned, distortion has gone away. A definite 5 star piece of equipment.
This lightweight and versatile lens from Nikon covers a lot of ground from fairly wide angle to telephoto. It takes the place of 3 of my existing Nikon lenses. Pair this with a 10-20mm wide angle lens, and you've got a lot of photo options covered. The quality of the photos has been great so far.
