Nikon's most powerful all-in-one zoom lens ever.

Nikon's AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens.
If you want a single lens that can cover every imaginable shooting situation, from wide-angle groups to ultra-high-power zoom shots, look no further than the new AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR. Boasting the longest reach of any NIKKOR all-in-one zoom lens, it delivers the equivalent of 450mm—enough reach to bring the most distant action up close. Nikon's second generation VR II technology ensures every photo and HD video is razor-sharp, and Nikon's advancements in lens design deliver consistent, exceptional performance in any setting. It's also great for close-up shooting. Even more amazing, the AF-S NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR does all this in a surprisingly compact, lightweight lens.

No subject is too far or too close

450mm (equivalent) of super-telephoto reach

Building on the success of the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–200mm f/3.5-5.6G VR, Nikon proudly introduces the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR for those who want even more reach in an all-in-one lens. Its astounding 16.7x zoom range goes from a wide 27mm equivalent, great for group shots, vast landscapes and more, all the way to a super-telephoto 450mm equivalent, enough reach for wildlife photography and more. The lens can focus as close as 1.48-ft. from your subject at 300mm. This ultra-high-power zoom capability means no subject or composition will ever be out of reach again.

Sharp, beautiful images in any light

VR II image stabilization

At super-telephoto focal lengths, even the slightest camera movement can cause image blur. Fortunately, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR features Nikon VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization that provides 3.5 stops* of blur free handheld shooting, assuring dramatically sharper still images and HD video capture.

A lifetime of brilliant performances

Nikon innovations for stunning images

Nikon's innovations in optical design and lens technology have given way to a remarkable new class of NIKKOR lenses. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is among them. From its Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing to its Aspherical (AS) lens elements and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements for maximum contrast and minimum lens flare and ghosting—you can expect a lifetime of consistent brilliant performance from the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR.

Nikon Vibration Reduction

Learn more about Nikon’s in-lens VR image stabilization which assures dramatically sharper still images and video capture when shooting handheld.
*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.
Vibration Reduction
Vibration Reduction
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
Silent Wave Motor
Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations—rather than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent and precise autofocus operation.
M/A
M/A
Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
AS
AS
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.
Super Integrated Coating
Super Integrated Coating
Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
IF Lens
IF Lens
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

The One Lens to Rule them All!!! Instead of going on some Get Away 25th wedding anniversary trip, my amazing husband bought this lens for me. I LOVE IT. I'm able to do everything without switching out lens. I haven't missed a single shot opportunity. It's a keeper! My husband too! July 12, 2014
Excellent Lens I really like this lens. I have a D5100 and had been using a Nikon 18-70 and a Nikon 55-300 as my lenses, which I was constantly changing, and in the process losing shots. I bought this about six months ago, and have used it in a variety of situations, including photographing receptions, photographing art show entries, taking pictures in nature, and some really close-up shots where I used it like a macro. It does an excellent job on all of these. It is heavy, but it is a wonderful all-purpose lens that gives the user many options of focal length to capture a wide range of photos. October 27, 2013
You'll love it! I recently purchased the 18-300 to put on my D5200. I have been amazed. I really love pet portriat & pet action, nature and sunrise/sunset photography. This all-in-one has not let me down. I would switch lenses frequently, and worried about dust getting in the camera. Now, I never have to remove the lens from the camera and I'm always ready for any shot, whether it be a close-up of an flower or a wide angle sunset. It does have a little weight to it, so it won't spend much time just hanging on the strap, you'll want to hold it. It's well worth it... Another thing that I love is the ability to override the autofocus. When the shutter release is pressed half-way and the camera focuses, you can override it and focus manually simply by rotating the focus ring. No switching back & forth from auto to manual. If you can find one in stock, BUY IT! :-) I love the versatility and image quality. THANKS NIKON! March 23, 2013
D5100 + 18-300 I finally bought when it went on sale for 700.00 almost everywhere. I sold my 55-300. I can say with out a doubt this thing is amazing, I can't believe all the wide angle shots I've been missing, I truly love this. It has reviews for all its downsides, distortion, boeing, pincushion, chromatic, but the can all be fixed easily in post production. I actually like the bowing as I do landscape. It's worth every penny. March 17, 2013
18-300 mm lens I bought this lens for my D-5100 camera feb 25th, mainly used for wildlife and found it to be way byound my expectations, i highly recomend this lens to any nature photographer. Dave A. March 6, 2013

Answer: 
It will work fine with D7000, a far as quality I expect it will be as good as your 18-200. I also use the 18-200 as a travel lens and the only drawback to the 18-300 is it weighs a half a pound more.

Answer: 
Zoom Creep is the effect gravity can have on your zoom lens under certain circumstances. The lens tends to slowly zoom in or out under its own weight if pointed straight up, straight down, or at a sharp angle and nothing is touching the zoom ring. Most of the creep occurs between 30mm and 130mm in the zoom range. This is normal and the zoom action can’t be tightened to eliminate creep.

The description of the new 18-300 DX says that this lens provides a 450mm equivalency. Is that a typo?

Since this is a DX lens, it shouldn’t be equal to the ‘zoom’ (crop) that an FX lens has. Correct? I have the 18-105 kit lens that came with my D90 and I also have the 70-300 FX. The 18-105 DX is formatted for the APS-C sensor size so the zoom range is proper. But the 70-300 FX being what it is, when I use it on my APS-C cameras it is in effect a 105 - 450. So I have the entire range of 18 - 450 covered.

So it seems to me that I’d be losing zoom by consolidating to this one lens. Thanks in advance.

Answer: 
No, on the DX lenses they don't allow for the crop when they designate the zoom range. So your 18-105 is in effect a 27-157 on a DX sensor.

Answer: 
It will fit and auto focus with any Nikon DSLR, however since it is a DX format lens it really isn't very useful on a a FX format camera.
