*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 When attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
*5 AF/MF and VR ON/OFF 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 VR 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 VR 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.
Vibration Reduction (VR) system of the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4.0 stops faster (based on CIPA Standard*)
The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR realizes an effect equivalent to 4.0 stops faster based on CIPA Standard*, which is a measurement method of blur-correction effect common to most camera/lens manufacturers.
* When attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera, with zoom set at the maximum telephoto position.
Adopting a setting system using the camera menus, lens settings can be performed on the camera*
The focus mode switch and VR switch that are less frequently used have been eliminated, so AF/MF selection and VR ON/OFF 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.
