Introducing a new breed of NIKKOR lens, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G. Featuring a stepping motor – a first*1 for NIKKOR lenses – the 18-55mm*2 lens offers smooth, nimble focusing in an incredibly compact size. With its new settings system and lightweight design, even first-time DSLR photographers will find it a breeze to use. Pair it with Nikon’s D3000-series and D5000-series cameras*3 and let its quiet agility take your photography to the next level.
Swift and Smooth Control
The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G is one of the first*1 NIKKOR lenses to feature a stepping motor, allowing for better autofocus (AF) handling. With a sound reduction in the AF drive, it lets you shoot with minimal mechanical noises. The stepping motor also offers smoother AF movements, as well as speed boosts in both phase-detection AF and contrast-detection AF.
Delivering Sharp and Spectacular Images
Designed with 2 aspherical lens elements, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G offers impressive optical performance to capture sharp, spectacular images. The aspherical lens elements also effectively correct lens aberrations and distortions.
High portability, higher productivity
At approximately 195g, the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G measures a mere 64.5mm (diameter) by 62.5mm (length) when retracted. Its retractable lens mechanism lends itself to a highly portable body that is easy to carry everywhere. A new setting system allows autofocus/manual focus settings to be accessed directly from the camera’s menu*4 for smooth and seamless shooting.
*1 Some 1 NIKKOR lenses have adopted a stepping motor.
*2 Angle of view is equivalent to that of a 27-82.5 mm lens in FX/35mm format.
*3 Compatible with D5500, D5300 and D3300.
*4 AF/MF controls from the camera’s menu are only available with D5500, D5300 and D3300.
AF-P lenses realize fast and quiet AF operation via the adoption of a stepping motor for AF drive
A stepping motor built into the lens contributes to fast AF speed and quiet, smooth focusing operation.
As AF-P lenses incorporate a stepping motor, the number of compatible cameras are limited. For compatible cameras, some models require a firmware update.
Compact and lightweight, DX-format compatible, 3.1x normal zoom lenses with 18-55 mm* focal-length range and f/3.5-5.6 maximum aperture
The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G employs a retractable lens mechanism as with the current AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II, ensuring a compact and light, highly portable body.
* Angle of view is equivalent to that of a 27-82.5 mm lens in FX/35mm format.
Two aspherical lens elements are employed to deliver superior optical performance with minimal lens aberrations
The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G employs an optical system that provides the optical performance equivalent to that of the highly evaluated AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II.
Adopting a setting system using the camera menus, lens settings can be performed on the camera*
The focus mode switch that is less frequently used has been eliminated, so AF/MF selection can now be performed with the camera menus, preventing unwanted setting change caused by unintentional switch operation. The status of settings can be confirmed in the information display.
* The number of compatible cameras is limited.
