Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR

The Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR AF-S DX Lens is an ultra compact, lightweight standard zoom lens that has a 3x focal zoom range and is ideally suited for use with compact Nikon digital SLR cameras that feature the smaller DX sized chip. This lens offers the most basic zoom range in the DX lens series, an equivalent focal length in 35mm terms of 27-82.5mm. It will conveniently cover everything from tight indoor portraits to standard snap shots.

The innovative Vibration Reduction (VR) system allows handheld telephoto zoom shooting even in poorly lit conditions. It minimizes image blur caused by camera shake, and offers the equivalent of shooting at a shutter speed 3 stops (8 times) faster. The Nikon Super Integrated Coating used in this lens minimizes ghosting and flare to provide even higher contrast and more vivid images, even in challenging light conditions.

This G-type Nikkor lens is designed with no aperture rings, and offers easier, virtually mistake-free operation because the aperture does not need to be set to minimum.

Vibration Reduction
Minimizes image blur caused by camera shake, enabling sharper pictures hand-held at shutter speeds up to three stops slower than would otherwise be possible.

Optics
One hybrid aspherical lens element minimizes various types of lens aberration.

SWM (Silent Wave Motor)
The improved SWM built into the lens offers smooth and quiet autofocus performance.

Rounded Diaphragm
The rounded diaphragm opening (7 blades) makes out-of-focus elements appear more natural.

Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 G VR review by cameralabs.com

The Nikkor DX 18-55mm VR is a classy budget kit lens which puts many rival models to shame. The 3x range and f3.5-5.6 focal ratio may be unremarkable, but with both SWM focusing and VR facilities, it’s a step above most models for the money.

Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 VR review by kenrockwell.com

I’d get one! It’s super-sharp, and can give images as good or better than the more expensive 16-85mm and 18-200mm lenses. You lose mechanical durability, not image quality, compared to the more expensive lenses.
