The AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II Lens from Nikon is a compact, lightweight standard zoom lens that has a 3.1x zoom range and is compatible with DX format Nikon DSLR cameras. This lens offers an equivalent focal length in 35mm terms of 27-82.5mm and will conveniently cover everything from wide-angle to short telephoto perspectives, incorporating tight interiors to standard snap shots to portraiture. 

One Extra-low Dispersion glass element and one aspherical lens element correct chromatic and spherical aberrations for sharp, color-accurate imaging and Super Integrated Lens Coating enhances light transmission and reduces ghosting and flare. The Silent Wave Motor provides fast, precise and near-silent autofocus action which is particularly important when shooting video.

Versatile DX Format Zoom Lens

This lightweight DX format lens is an ideal everyday and travel lens with its compact form factor and versatile focal length range which is equivalent to a 27-82.5mm focal length in the 35mm format.

Optical Design

One ED glass element and one aspherical lens element provide high-resolution, high-contrast images while minimizing chromatic aberration, astigmatism and other forms of distortion.

SWM (Silent Wave Motor)

The improved SWM built into the lens offers smooth and quiet autofocus performance.

Rounded Diaphragm

The rounded 7-blade diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural.

question

Is this lens compatible with the Nikon D7200 ?
Asked by: Rosa H.
Yes, you can use this lens on the D7200. Although this lens is FX format, which is full frame, and the D7200 is DX format, which has a sensor that is 1.5x smaller, it can still be mounted and used. Your field of view will change by 1.5, so an FX format 70-200mm lens on the DX format camera will have the same field of view as a 105-300mm lens on an FX camera.

question

Is this considered an off market lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, I checked this out carefully. It is a very good lens, just not the newest. It is priced lower than the newest model 70-200. Have used it quite a lot and would get it again in a heartbeat.
