From city shots and landscapes to portraits and family events, these multipurpose lenses are the smart way to faithfully capture day-to-day moments. Both lenses cover the popular focal length range of 18–55mm and offer a maximum aperture of f/3.5–5.6. These are also the first NIKKOR lenses to employ Nikon’s new Stepping Motor, which focuses fast and is ideal for shooting movies. The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18–55mm VR features Nikon’s Vibration Reduction technology for clear, blur-free images, especially in low light, and both lenses boast a retractable lens mechanism for superior portability. Consistently strong performers, these 18–55m lenses offer starting D-SLR photographers a great balance of image quality, versatility and affordability (especially when purchased in a kit).
Zurab Kiknadze, Product Manager, Lenses, Accessories & Software, Nikon Europe, says: “We’re happy to announce these two new additions to Nikon’s 18–55mm lens portfolio. Both lenses continue our policy of ensuring that newcomers to the Nikon D-SLR system get the best possible introduction to the world of NIKKOR optics. We’ve streamlined the lens design to keep weight low and improve portability, but the big change is the inclusion of Nikon’s Stepping Motor: autofocus is now noticeably faster and quieter than before. Whether you use these 18–55m lenses to shoot movies or take photos, you’re getting great image quality plus exceptional convenience and reliability straight out of the box.”
