Light and compact ‘walk-around’ lens with Vibration Reduction

With its versatile 18–55mm focal range and VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization, this lens makes it easy to create sharp, clear photos and videos. Remarkably light and compact, it’s an ideal general purpose ‘walk-around’ lens. It even captures fantastic close-up shots as close as 0.9-ft. from your subject.

Versatile enough for any setting

3x standard zoom with Vibration Reduction

Optimized for Nikon DX-format D-SLRs, the practical and versatile AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR was designed to cover the most frequently used focal length range of 18–55mm. It’s great for a very broad range of photo and video applications, from portraits to landscapes. Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization provides 3.0 stops* of blur free handheld shooting, ensures that all your shots turn out remarkably crisp, even when handheld shooting.

Sharp, clear images

Nikon technology for optimum performance

Like all NIKKOR lenses, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR is engineered for performance. Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating (SIC) offers superior color quality and reduces ghosting and flare. A rounded, seven-blade diaphragm makes out of focus elements appear more natural, and a hybrid aspherical lens element minimizes various types of lens aberration. Expect vibrant, clear images and videos.

*Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when: DX-format lenses are attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera and zoom lenses are set at the maximum telephoto position.

AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.

A-M stands for Auto-Manual Mode. Thanks to a mechanism incorporated in the lens barrel, smooth focusing operation in Manual focus mode is realized in the same way as users have become accustomed to with conventional manual-focus lenses by adding an appropriate torque to the focus ring.

not a bad lense Have had this lense for about a year now but have only used it for a couple of months at most. It came with my d5100 that I still currently use but was easily replaced by my 50mm 1.8 almost immediately. That being said it's not a bad lense at all. For the price you can't go wrong. The quality is there and it covers a good range for family and Facebook type photography. I wouldn't recommend buying the lense itself for the reason that you can save and get a better lense for a little more money. March 2, 2014
Limited Use but Excellent Pictures Slow lens but... I have this lens paired with a Nikon D3200. While the focal length is limiting at times I will not hold that against this lens rating since that problem is easily solved by purchasing other lenses. For an included lens this thing works great. Even if you flip it into auto mode and shoot away the pictures come out clean and crisp. The aperture of 3.5 does leave much to be desired in many situations. However, for what you can use this lens for, it does it very well. Let my sample images speak for themselves. I am new to photography with inexpensive budget equipment and I think the images look amazing. The VR works fairly well although I do not know the specifics or technicalities behind this feature. I do know that all the shots I shoot handheld come out sharp and clear. This lens does NOT blur the background the way that I would like for portraits so if you do a lot of that you will probably want to purchase the 35mm DX 1.8G lens. All in all however, for the price (or included in your kit) this lens allows you to capture most of your photographic ideas nicely. A great place to start. It usually takes a lot to impress me and I must say that I am impressed! December 30, 2013
THINGS STARTED OUT WELL ENOUGH ... My initial impressions of this lens were very favourable. It seemed to be well made (for a plastic lens), and the sharpness of the images I got with it were very pleasing. The zoom ring worked well, with no trace of sloppiness at all. The range of the lens, from, effectively, 27mm wide angle, to 82.5 mm telephoto, was very useful (allowing for the cropping factor), enabling it to be used in a variety of conditions, and it was not too bulky, even when zoomed out to the 55 mm setting. Time, however, was not kind to this lens. Annoying issues became noticeable as the months passed. For example, I could never find a lens hood that didn't intrude at the edges of the image when the lens was used at the 18 mm setting. It meant I had to crop images a bit more than I wanted to. The other issue was the distortion in vertical lines at the wide angle setting. This would render things like trees, and the edges of tall buildings, with curved sides, and the images would not look good. Using the distortion correction option on the camera menu made little difference. The most unpleasant surprise came more or less one month after the year's warranty expired: the lens developed a “wobble,” in that the front element would move noticeably up and down when the zoom ring was used (and the zoom ring itself had become very stiff and jerky to use). This “wobble” could be seen as a distinct up and down movement through the viewfinder, as if somebody had nudged the camera. So, forget about using the zoom when taking video images, as this up and down movement would be too obvious. At first, the wobble didn't affect the operation of the lens, but after a couple of weeks the focus became worse, and in some conditions, such as low light, the lens hardly focussed at all. Some research on the Internet revealed this “wobble” was a common problem with this kit lens, being that it is made down to a price. My research also told me that getting the issue rectified would not be easy. Some owners reported a six to eight week delay whilst the lens was with Nikon USA (and Nikon have now made it impossible to get your equipment repaired locally), and attempts to get any information were usually met with explanations like: “The item is held awaiting parts.” The deal breaker, as shown by Internet forum comments, was that the price of out-of-warranty repair was such that it was far cheaper to look online for a replacement lens. I have to ask, what is the point of making this lens of such cheap quality that it is only going to last you about a year? I should point out that I am neither a professional photographer, nor a “prosumer” snapper (whatever that means!). No, I am not anything other than a weekend photographer, so I hardly think I subject my lenses to overly rough treatment or excessive use. I honestly expected this lens to perform flawlessly for a lot longer than just over twelve months. Then again, I have read forum posts by photographers who have subjected their 18mm-55mm lens to far more use than I have, and it has failed in less than a year. In one case, a user reported about how the whole front element of the lens fell out whilst he was using it. Would I recommend this lens? No! Most definitely not! I would recommend that people purchase the camera body only, and then pay the extra for a different lens to the 18mm-55mm. My recommendation would be to go for the 18mm-105mm lens. The extra cost would be worth it. Also, the extended range of this lens would come in very handy. It would be far more useful to you in a whole range of photographic applications than the 18mm-55mm. Yes, the 18mm-105mm is just another plastic lens, but, hopefully, the build quality is that much better, so you would get more use out of it before it, too, exhibited the dreaded “wobble.” December 5, 2013
Great Lens The lens came with the camera and I've really enjoyed the wide angle view the lens provides along with the easy use of the VR feature. December 4, 2013
OK In a Bundled Kit This lens was bundled with the 55-300 mm version in a D5200 kit that joins my Canon 60D gear. The included 18-55 mm lens will not get the most out of your Nikon body. Its results are meaningfully 'soft', but you are also not going to get the latest-greatest in a price point bundle. It simply gets you started with a lens that will be suitable for snapshot sized prints. However, you may find that it can make for a suitable portrait lens where soft results are desired. When you want razor detail in a close up macro type shot, it won't be there. The lens is okay in a start-up bundle, but a serious shooter looking for sharpness would not purchase a stand-alone copy. The sample shot included would not well tolerate a blow up even though the D5200 body used with it is highly capable. July 28, 2013

Answer: 
No! You might look into a rubber hood which can be folded back when using the lens at it's widest angle. Rubber is nice as you can take scissors to it and modify to your needs. You are not going to find a hood that works well throughout the range of the lens, it's the nature of the beast.

I'm trying to set up my dslr rig with Redrock Micro's follow focus system and need to know the lens circumference for my AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens? I need that information in order to select the right gear size to fit around my lens. Going forward I would like to see Nikon include the circumference of all their lenses in the tech specs. My measurement should be the lens circumference, NOT the diameter, and NOT the filter size. Redrock goes by millimeter (mm).

Thanks,
Ken

Answer: 
It depends. This is a good all-around lens. It is especially useful for close quarters and if you have a big bridal party and are trying to get a shot from the front of the whole party, this lens should do the trick. If your camera is a full-frame camera, this lens is probably not a good one for you. If I had only one lens, this would probably be the lens.
