This compact and affordable 5.8x zoom NIKKOR lens offers remarkable versatility and covers a broad focal range of 18 to 105mm. When mounted on any DX-format Nikon digital SLR camera, the picture angle is equivalent to that produced by a 27 to 157.5mm focal length lens on a 35mm-format film camera or Nikon FX-format camera.
An ultra-compact Silent Wave Motor (SWM) built into the lens body ensures fast, quiet and accurate autofocus operation and complements the compact design for superb handling. Nikon's VR (Vibration Reduction) function, specifically engineered for each NIKKOR lens, gives photographers the ability to shoot handheld at shutter speeds up to three stops* slower than would otherwise be possible, thereby minimizing image blur caused by camera shake and delivering dramatically sharper pictures, especially in low-light conditions such as in interiors and at twilight.
