Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR AF-S DX Nikkor Zoom Lens (Imported)

Condition: Parallel Import
The versatile new AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens offers Nikon's proprietary Vibration Reduction (VR) technology to help consumers snap sharper photos than ever before, even while shooting handheld.

From family gatherings to sunny vacation beaches, the NIKKOR 18-55mm VR lens produces stunning results with vivid color and incredible sharpness. The 3x optical zoom offers users of Nikon DX-format D-SLR cameras including the D40, D40x, D80 and new D300 with a versatile picture angle perspective ranging from wide angle for dramatic landscapes and interiors, to moderate telephoto that is ideal for flattering portraits.

Beyond the lens' incredible optical versatility is the amazing benefit of Nikon's VR technology, which enables photographers to take substantially sharper handheld pictures at slower shutter speeds than would otherwise be possible. This provides the distinct advantage of being able to shoot more effectively in a much broader variety of challenging conditions. Nikon's VR system affords users the ability to take pictures at shutter speeds up to three stops slower than they ordinarily could shoot without the image-degrading blur caused by camera shake at slow shutter speeds.

Compact 3x zoom lens covering the most frequently used focal range of 18 to 55mm
