Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED V... Overview

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.

All-in-one zoom spans wide-angle to telephoto focal lengths and is designed for Nikon F-mount DX-format cameras, where it provides a 27-450mm equivalent range.
Three aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
Three extra-low dispersion elements greatly reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and color accuracy.
A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override. An internal focusing design is also used, where only the internal lens groups are moved during focusing, to maintain the overall length of the lens during use and to promote faster focusing speeds.
VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by 4 stops to benefit shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

Is this lens compatible with the Nikon F-100?

Is this lens compatible with the Nikon F-100?
Asked by: Arie
No, it is not. The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR Lens is designed for use with Nikon DSLR cameras that use the smaller APS-C digital sensor. The Nikon F-100 35mm Film SLR camera is a film camera that uses full-frame 35mm film. Nikon DX lenses are not compatible for use with Nikon's 35mm film SLR cameras, and should not be used. The smaller imaging circle of the lens would not fully cover the larger 35mm film, and as such, there would be a large, dark circular vignette area on the negative where the smaller imaging circle on the DX lens blocks light from exposing the outer edge of your film. You also do not want to run the chance of damaging either the lens, the internal reflexing mirror, or both when attempting to use a DX lens on the 35mm film SLR camera.

(1). Is Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR to be compatible with D3100 and D750? (2). Any convertor for this lens? which one would you recommend? Is the convertor gonna be compatible with D3100 and D750?
Asked by: Ying
The lens will work with both cameras but the D750 is full frame and the lens is aps-c, you will only get 40% resolution instead of the full frame resolution. I would not recommend a converter on this lens, no autofocus and poor image quality.

Does this lens work with both crop (i.e.: Nikon D5600) and full frame (i.e.: Nikon D780) Nikon cameras?
Asked by: Farhina
This lens works best on DX sensor cameras like the D5600. While it can fit on a D780 with autofocus, the image will crop and you will lose resolution with its use.
