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.

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

Great All Around Travel Lens During a recent two week trip to Italy's Tuscany and Umbria, I seldom removed this lens from my Nikon D7000 camera body. This lens is amazingly sharp and offers brilliant color and contrast. Below is a photo of the Florence skyline taken with a shutter speed of 1/200 of a second, an aperture of f/7.1, a focal length of 28mm, an ISO of 100, Auto White Balance, and Matrix Metering. November 15, 2014
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

I just purchased the new Nikkor 18-300m AF S lens. I started using for night club events. Would not focus in M/A, had to switch to Manual after many disappointing takes. It's hard to focus in manual at night and low light. Anybody else with this problem?

Answer: 
Yes this is nothing new in photography. It can happen to anyone no matter the camera or lens. The camera needs something of contrast to be able to lock focus on. If the camera is unable to autofocus in low light you are suppose to turn on the AF-Assist. Some people may not like the AF-Assist light. If there's not enough light, and people do not what you point the AF-Assist ligh at them, you will have no choice but to focus manually. Hyper focus distance, depth of field calculator etc. There a lot of information out there that you can use to sharpen your manual photography skills.

Answer: 
At 830 grams the 18-300 is not a particularly heavy lens and you can carry it by the lens or the camera body. What ever is comfortable and as a safety feature wrap the strap around your wrist if you are not carrying it with the strap around your neck.

Answer: 
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR will fully function with the D800E. However keep in mind that the D800E has an FX sensor and the lens is a DX format. This may cause cropping if the camera is not adjusted to Auto DX Crop (which can be found in the image area setting of the camera). Auto DX Crop will have the camera adjust to the DX crop when a DX lens is attached.

To find more information on this setting of the camera please see page 81 of the User's Manual: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

To see what the crop may look like with the D800E here is a link to the lens simulator: http://static.nikonusa.com/Lens-Sim...

For more information on what DX and FX mean for the lens and camera please see the link provided: http://www.nikonusa.com/en/Learn-An...

If you intend to step up to a FX better to get the 28-300. I have this on a D800. I just purchased the 18-300 for my D7000. Less than 50 clicks on my DX lens but works well. D7000 is my travel camera.

Answer: 
Yes, the D60 would be compatible with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR. 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. For more information on finding a lens for the D60, please see the following: https://support.nikonusa.com/app/an...

Should I get this lens AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR?

My D800 camera has Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G lens and Nikon 70-200 F/2.8G lens and Nikon 50mm f/1.4G lens. The problem is these zooms are too heavy to travel. I am thinking to sacrifice the quality for weight on the 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G lens, when I am on travel. What do you think?

Answer: 
No, it is a DX lens, resulting in smaller image size and quality. IF that is the focal length you want, then get the AF-S NIKKOR 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, it is a full frame lens.

I am considering which one of these lenses to purchase. I have reviewed the comparisons and have not been able to tell which would be a better lens for me. I am not a professional, but I want the best qualify photos possible. I have a D7000 and currently use the 18-200 lens. I shoot mainly wildlife, birds, horses in motion and nature. I see some disadvantages to this lens, being heavier and costing more than the newer one, but does it give a better result? Is the focusing, depth and sharpness of this lens superior to the newer, smaller, lighter 18-300 lens?

Answer: 
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. 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.

I have two questions and I would very much appreciate it if you could give me an answer. First, although I just bought this lens, so it's brand new, it feels loose on the camera mount. I sense a little movement there.
Secondly, how can I mount my camera (D5100) with this heavy lens on on a tripod?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Answer: 
When the 18-300mm lens is attached to the D5100 (Align the white dot at the bottom of the lens with the white dot below the fn button on the camera, push in and turn to the left till it clicks into place), you should feel no movement or looseness. Please carefully inspect the camera mount, and the bottom of the lens to make sure nothing is broken on it.

The lens does not have a tripod socket or collar, so the tripod has to be screw into the socket at the bottom of the camera.
