Introducing a new breed of NIKKOR lens: the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G. Featuring a stepping motor – a first1 for NIKKOR lenses – the 18-55mm2 lens offers smooth, nimble focusing in an incredibly compact size. With its new settings system and lightweight design, even first-time D-SLR photographers will find it a breeze to use. Pair it with Nikon’s D3000-series and D5000-series cameras3 and let its quiet agility take your photography to the next level.
Swift and smooth control
The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G 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.
Delivering sharp, spectacular images
Designed with 2 aspherical lens elements, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G offers impressive optical performance, allowing you to capture sharp, spectacular images. The aspherical lens elements also effectively correct lens aberrations and distortions.
High portability, higher productivity
The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G measures a mere 64.5mm (diameter) by 62.5mm (length) when retracted. This retractable lens mechanism and light weight (approximately 195g) lends itself to a highly portable body that’s easy to carry anywhere. A new setting system allows autofocus/manual focus settings to be accessed directly from the camera’s menu4 – for smooth and seamless shooting.
