Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Overview

Updating the staple DX-format standard zoom, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR from Nikon offers a 27-82.5mm equivalent focal length range as well as an especially sleek form factor. Two aspherical elements are featured in the optical design, which help to control spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize high sharpness and accurate rendering. A Super Integrated Coating is also used to minimize flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy. Suiting both photo and video applications, the AF-P designation indicates the use of a pulse stepping motor that offers notably quiet, fast, and precise autofocus performance. Additionally, Vibration Reduction image stabilization compensates for up to four stops of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting.

Standard zoom spans wide-angle to portrait focal lengths and is designed for Nikon F-mount DX-format cameras, where it provides a 27-82.5mm equivalent range.
Two aspherical elements are used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
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.
AF-P pulse motor uses stepping motors to deliver impressively smooth, quiet, and fast autofocus performance that is well-suited to both stills and video applications.
VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by four 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.
A retractable lens barrel design maintains an especially compact form factor when the lens is not in use. Additionally, autofocus and VR switches have been removed from the lens design for a sleek profile; these operations are now accessible in compatible cameras' menu systems.

Which one is better, AF-P lens or AF-S lens?
Asked by: Paul
It depends on the use. AF-P lenses utilize a pulse motor which gives smoother and quieter focusing compared to the AF-S lenses. This is a benefit to those who are shooting video. AF-P lenses do not work on every Nikon, so I would check compatibility first if you happen to have an older model.

Will this lens work on Nikon D90?
Asked by: Paul
Not like you want it to work. It's an AF-P lens, designed for more modern iterations of Nikon DSLRs. What will work on your D90 is the AF-S version of the 18-55mm lens, which can be found new, or at a bargain price 'used'. The AF-S version is quite good optically, but somewhat noisy when shooting video.

Is this lens compatible with the Nikon Z50?
Asked by: Ron
Only if you use a Z-to-F mount adapter. Nikon has one for about $250, and a couple of 3rd party manufacturers make one. I believe Z series cameras work best with Z mount lenses, but if you already have F mount lenses, and don't have the cash for a new Z mount lens then try the adapter.

question

Will this lens fit my D5100? What is the difference between AF-S and AF-P? What does this mean/indicate?
Asked by: Lana M.
It will not work on a D5100. Will not focus. Different focusing mechanism, apparently. Wont work on my D800 either but great on my D7200.

question

Why this lens won't work in my D7000?
Asked by: Juan L.
AF-P lenses are NOT compatible, at all, on the D7000. They don't focus, even in manual. In the D7xxx line the D7100 is the earliest camera they function on.
