Quick and quiet
The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR is one of the first1 NIKKOR lenses to feature a stepping motor, allowing for better autofocus (AF) handling. With a sound reduction in the AF drive, it lets you shoot with minimal mechanical noises. The stepping motor also offers smoother AF movements, as well as speed boosts in both phase-detection AF and contrast-detection AF.
Perfection in every pixel
With 2 aspherical lens elements, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR offers superior optical performance that minimises lens aberrations and distortions. Every captured image is portrayed in remarkable clarity. Built-in Vibration Reduction (VR) compensates for shake caused by hand-held movements and provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster4. That means you can capture sharper and crisper images, even from a moving vehicle.
