Nikon Australia is pleased to announce the launch of two new NIKKOR 18-55mm lenses, AF-P DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G and AF-P DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, the first AF-P lenses for Nikon’s DSLR cameras. The two latest additions to the NIKKOR range offer compelling autofocus performance, advanced optical elements and excellent agility.
Enjoy uninterrupted moments with fast, quiet autofocusing from the compact AF-P lenses and remember memories in clarity with the assistance of refined lens optical performance and Vibration Reduction (VR) mechanism1.
“Nikon’s renowned NIKKOR technology runs through these new additions, offering uncompromising functionality in two highly portable lenses,” said James Murray, Director of Sales and Marketing, Nikon Australia. “Both offer truly agile performances that will complement any kit bag and are a perfect match for anyone starting out in DSLR photography.”
Additionally, clarity of each shot is enhanced with utilisation of aspherical lens elements that effectively suppress various types of aberrations. A VR mechanism engineered with the AF-P DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR also gives a camera shake compensation equivalent to a shutter speed effect of 4.0 stops3 faster to help further minimise any effects from sudden external movements.
Both lenses are a breeze to carry on travels and do not take up too much space in a backpack or luggage. Retractable barrels fitted into each lens’ compact build contribute to keeping the lenses portable and ready for any photography adventure.
