Nikon's Most Powerful All-In-One Zoom Lens Ever for the D90!

18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

In stock on September 2, 2012. Get one here!

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's second-generation Vibration Reduction technology (VR II) to ensure every handheld photo and HD video is razor sharp. Shoot at shutter speeds 4-times slower than otherwise possible, a major advantage in low-light situations where a slower shutter speed means brighter, richer images.

This lens costs almost twice as much as the 18-55mm and 55-300mm together and weighs more than the two lenses together as well. I think I'll suffer the wear and tear on the lens mount.

I already bought the 18-300 for my D90 and it's fabulous !

Bought an 18-250 Sigma. Used it one evening and sent it back. Did not at all like the feel of the zoom. So much for saving the $500.00. The 18-300 arrived today. WOW!! What a lens. Dragging an 18-105 and a 70-300 around a race track is a Royal pain. You just can't change lenses fast enough. Slipping on the 18-300 is going t be a breeze. It truly is a fabulous lens!
