If you want a single lens that can cover every imaginable shooting situation, from wide-angle group shots all the way to ultra-high-power zoom shots, look no further than the new AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18 300mm. Boasting the longest reach of any NIKKOR all-in-one zoom lens, it delivers the equivalent of 450mm of super-telephoto power enough reach to bring the most distant action up close. Nikon's second generation Vibration Reduction (VR II) image stabilization ensures every photo and HD video is razor-sharp, and Nikon'sadvanced lens technologies deliver consistent, exceptional performance in any setting. It's even great for close-up shooting (as close as 1.48 ft from your subject at 300mm). Even more amazing, the AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-300mm doesall this in a surprisingly compact, lightweight lens.

(450mm equivalent) for maximum versatility and reach.

Silent Wave Motor (SWM):
- A significant innovation in AF lens technology, Nikon's Silent Wave

from extending during transport.

- Tailored to each lens, enables handheld shooting at up to 4 shutter
speeds slower than would otherwise be possible for dramatically sharper
images and HD videos, even in low light.

automatic to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning
