Overview: The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G
ED lens is a 1.9x wide-angle to standard view zoom lens that is suitable for
travel and video applications. It is designed for use with FX/35mm format cameras, but has
been optimized for edge-to-edge sharpness on both FX and DX-format D-SLRs. When
mounted on a DX-format camera, the angle of view is reduced, and the focal
length range is equivalent to 27-52.5mm.
Nikon Super Integrated Coating (SIC): Nikon's Super
Integrated Coating (SIC) offers superior color performance and substantially
reduced ghosting and flare, by enhancing light transmission.
Silent Wave Motor (SWM): The exclusive Nikon Silent Wave
Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate, and quiet auto focus. The ultra-fast and
ultra-quiet autofocusing makes this an excellent lens choice for shooting video.
Internal Focus: Internal Focus (IF) provides fast and quiet
autofocus without changing the length of the lens, retaining working distance
throughout the focus range.
Focus Mode Switch: The Focus Mode switch on the barrel of
the lens lets you easily switch between manual focus and auto focus. If you want
to enable auto focusing, the camera must be set to Auto Focus, and the switch on
the lens needs to be set to "M/A". With most Nikon D-SLRs, the lens gives you a
manual override option, allowing you to rotate the separate focus ring while
pressing the shutter release halfway.
Lens Construction: The AF-S Nikkor 18-35mm lens is
constructed of 12 elements in 8 groups, including 2 ED (Extra-low Dispersion
glass) lens elements for maximum sharpness and minimum chromatic aberrations,
and 3 aspheric lens elements that virtually eliminate certain types of
Diaphragm: The lens is equipped with a rounded 7-blade
diaphragm, which renders a softer, more natural appearance of out-of-focus image
Lens Hood: The lens comes with the HB-66 bayonet-type lens
hood. The hood adds approximately 1-1/4" to the overall length of the lens. You
can invert the hood and snap it onto the lens for storage, if desired.
