Boasting an ultra-high 16.7x zoom ratio and incredibly wide 18-300mm focal range, this new lens is a great all-rounder for photographers with a broad range of interests.

Simon Iddon, Product Manager for Enthusiast Products, at Nikon UK says This new 18-300mm lens is ideal for photographers looking to travel light -it's a versatile lens that allows you to capture a whole range of scenes with ease, thanks to its remarkable zoom range.


All in One
With its versatile wide-angle to super-telephoto reach, this 16.7x zoom lens is perfect for travel or for times when you only want to take one lens out with you. The remarkable 18-300mm focal range FX-format/35mm equivalent 27 to 450mm easily covers most commonly used focal lengths, going further than many comparable lenses by offering 300mm reach and a maximum aperture of f/5.6 at the telephoto end of the range. From wide landscapes to tight portraits and action photography, this lens will capture it all.

Sharp and steady
Complementing the versatile focal range is Nikon's second-generation Vibration Reduction system VRII that allows substantially sharper handheld images across the zoom range and dramatically reduces image blur, even when taking extreme telephoto shots. Three Extra-Low Dispersion ED glass and three aspherical lens elements provide high resolution and superior contrast, and the nine blade rounded diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus elements blend together smoothly. Nikon's compact Silent Wave Motor technology SWM combines fast and precise auto focus with super-quiet operation.

Built to travel
A practical zoom-lock switch keeps the lens secure when not in use, and it boasts a metal mount with rubber sealing for protection against dust and moisture.

This lens comes with a lens case CL-1120 and hood HB-58.
