Nikon technology for high-performance

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR features some of Nikon’s most advanced lens technologies to ensure the highest quality of images and videos. Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances contrast and color quality while reducing flare and ghosting. An Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element minimizes chromatic aberration for superior optical performance. Aspherical lens elements reduce distortion, even at the widest aperture settings. And Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor enables fast, ultra-quiet and precise focusing.
*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.
