Overview: This item is
a 18-200mm, f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED (Extra-low Dispersion glass), AF-S DX VR II
Zoom-Nikkor lens, compatible with the Nikon DX formatted Digital SLR cameras. The lens includes a 72mm snap-on front lens cap (LC-72), a rear
lens cap (LF-1), and a bayonet hood (HB-35). Auto Focus-Silent Wave (AF-S) is a
type of focusing motor used in a number of AF-Nikkor lenses; the AF-S motor is
very fast and quiet. AF-S lenses also have an M/A mode selector which allows the
user to switch from automatic to manual focus with almost no lag time.
11x Optical Zoom: 11x optical zoom coverage offers a perfect compact
and lightweight "one lens" solution.
Focus Range: The lens has
broad 18-200mm focal range for use in a variety of situations (equivalent to a
27-300 lens in 35mm format).
The VR II system offers a reduction of vibration while the
shutter is button is slightly pressed and at the instant the shutter is
released. This is the equivalent of using a shutter speed 4 stops faster.
Silent Wave Motor (SWM): New
compact rod-type motor enables ultra-high speed autofocusing with exceptional
accuracy and super-quiet operation.
AF G-type lens: Lenses that
use D-Type technology provide the camera with precise distance information for
flash and ambient light exposure processes.
ED Glass Elements: Two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass and
three aspherical lens elements minimize chromatic aberration, astigmatism and
other forms of distortion, while ensuring high resolution and contrast.
Coating: Lenses are coated with
Nikon Super Integrated Coating which minimizes ghosting affects and flare, so
that you can get even higher contrast and vivid images, even in challenging
Zoom Control: The lens features
a large, textured manual zoom ring for ultimate zooming control.
Auto Focus with Manual Override
(M/A): In the autofocus mode you can instantly switch to manual focus using
the focus ring, for easy adjustment.
Note: Because there is no aperture
ring on this lens, the aperture must be set on the camera.
Diaphragm: The lens is equipped
with a fully-automatic, 7-bladed diaphragm that produces a nearly circular
aperture. Out-of-focus images in front of or behind the subject are rendered as
Bayonet Hood: The supplied
HB-35 bayonet hood extends approximately 1-5/8" beyond the front of the lens,
and shades the aperture opening from direct sunlight that causes flaring. When
not in use, the hood can be stored on the lens by mounting it in reverse
