One outstanding lens; endless beautiful memories
The world is full of amazing views - some right in front of us, others far in the distance. Capture all of them beautifully with a single lens, the outstanding all-in-one telephoto zoom AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR. Surprisingly compact and lightweight for a 16.7x zoom lens, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR draws great performance from Nikon DX-format D-SLRs and is a highly versatile second lens. Shoot wide-angle scenic landscapes and group photos, portraits with softly blurred backgrounds, super-telephoto close-ups and everything in between - if you can see it, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR can capture it. Optimized for shooting both stills and HD videos, it features specialized Vibration Reduction technology for tack-sharp photos and steady videos, even when your hands are a bit shaky. And since it's a NIKKOR, it features some of the best optics available. Whether you're looking for maximum versatility in a lens or you're just the kind of photographer who finds inspiration all around, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR will help you capture more of life's great views.

Unparalleled versatility - 16.7x wide-angle to super-telephoto zoom
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR can do just about anything - stills, videos, landscapes, interiors, portraits, wildlife... you name it. Its massive zoom range goes from wide-angle (27mm equivalent in 35mm) all the way to super-telephoto (450mm equivalent in 35mm), so you can catch stunning close-ups of concert performers and athletes as easily as wide scenic shots. Its compact, balanced design and Vibration Reduction technology help keep photos sharp and videos steady, and the lens' fast, quiet autofocus system minimizes camera noise during video recording.

Sharper photos and videos - Vibration Reduction image stabilization
A little camera shake can ruin an otherwise great photos or video, especially when shooting at super-telephoto distances. To combat camera shake, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR features Nikon's Vibration Reduction technology, which provides 4.0 stops* of blur-free handheld shooting. Capture crisp, clear photos and steady videos even if your hands are a bit unsteady. Additionally, VR is a big advantage in low-light situations - slow down your shutter speed without compromising sharpness.

Reliable, inspiring performance - Superb image quality and consistency
Like all renowned NIKKOR lenses, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR delivers stunning image quality - vibrant color, sharp detail, and minimal distortion. To enhance that superb optical performance and increase its versatility as both a photo and video lens, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR includes Nikon's advanced lens technologies like Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for ultra-fast, near-silent autofocusing, three Aspherical (AS) and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements for maximum contrast and minimal lens flare and ghosting, a rounded 7-blade diaphragm for beautiful, natural background blur and Internal Focusing (IF) for a more compact, streamlined lens design.

*Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when DX-format compatible lenses are attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera and zoom lenses are set at the maximum telephoto position.

A-M
A-M stands for Auto-Manual Mode. Thanks to a mechanism incorporated in the lens barrel, smooth focusing operation in Manual focus mode is realized in the same way as users have become accustomed to with conventional manual-focus lenses by adding an appropriate torque to the focus ring.

AS
AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.

ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.

IF Lens
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations - rather than a gear system - to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.

Vibration Reduction
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.

5 out of 5 stars   Most impressively useable All-N-One zoom lens.
By Garromas58 (Birmingham,Al.) June 12, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR - 2196 - FACTORY REFURBISHED (NK18300VRRB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Very effective auto-focus with smooth manual override. Very sharp imagery across the board. Very versatile framing from any position, any distance. Size and weight are unnoticeable and insignificant.
Cons: Size and weight ARE intimidating when first picked up and mounted on camera. Lens shadowing with Pop-up when zoomed.
Other Comments: This lens is incredible. Find a subject, frame it, focus and shoot. I have found literally nothing to complain about and nothing this lens can't do. I go on lengthy walk-a-bouts and don't notice or think about it hanging off the front of my camera, just point-n-shoot. If you are a serious enthusiast who believes in a versatile quality tool that will serve any need, just give it a try. I use a Nikon D5100 and I'm an old timer to photography. I found it difficult to justify a lens that cost twice as much as the body. But, in the last few weeks of using it, the lens has proved worth every dollar.

5 out of 5 stars   perfect all-in-one
By NFDDS (WNY) June 03, 2014
Review submitted for Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens - 2196 (NK18300VR)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Love this lens! Works with my entry level D3100 to make both close up and zoom pictures look like they were taken by a professional. It's heavy, but I only need to carry the one lens for everyday use. Takes awesome close ups and action shots of kids playing sports from afar. The uv lens cover is a must-large lens makes for more surface area to scratch! Great price with bonus gifts and shipping was fast.
Cons: Heavy, but so are two lenses and a bag.

4 out of 5 stars   The Latest Best Nikon Zoom Lens.
By Harvey (Fairfax, VA) July 21, 2013
Review submitted for Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Zoom Lens - 2196 (NK18300VR)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Improved Vr, Maximum Focal Length, Little Or No Zoom Creep, Relatively fast
Cons: Price, a bit heavy
Other Comments: Nice improvement over the 18 - 200 mm zoom. Heavier, but not unwieldy. No loss in lens speed from the 18 - 200 mm zoom. The VR feature helps keep a sharp image at the maximum focal length. If you can only have one lens, this is the one to have.
