Two new Nikkor zoom lenses

Nikon Corporation announce the introduction of telephoto zoom AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED and wide zoom AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED.

The Zoom-Nikkor lens offers 70-300mm (4.3x) zoom performance, and is suitable for various telephoto shooting opportunities in, for example, as sports, nature and wildlife photography. When used with a Nikon DX format digital SLR, the picture angle is equivalent to what would be experienced with a 105-450mm lens on a 35mm SLR Advanced Nikon engineering has given rise to a compact lightweight lens design that offers outstanding optical performance and excellent handling characteristics.

The new Nikon Vibration Reduction (VRII) system enables users to take substantially sharper handheld pictures at slower shutter speeds. With the new VRII system, users can take sharp pictures at shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower* than would otherwise be possible. For VR shooting, users can select two VR modes to match shooting conditions. Normal Mode primarily reduces camera shake in handheld shooting, detecting panning automatically. Active Mode can compensate for vibration when shooting from, for example, a moving vehicle.

The AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED also offers proven Nikon features and technologies such as the SWM, which offers fast and precise autofocusing with super-quiet operation, and two ED glass elements that provide higher resolution and high-contrast images.

The lens has a focal length range of 18-135mm, which is suitable for a wide variety of shooting situations ranging from tight sports, action and portraits to wide-angle landscapes. (The picture angle is equivalent to a 27-202.5mm lens in the 35mm format.) Advanced Nikon engineering, in particular the compact SWM, has enabled a compact lightweight design with excellent handling characteristics.

The optical design features, one ED glass element and two hybrid aspherical lens elements assure high-resolution, high-contrast images while minimizing chromatic aberration, astigmatism and other forms of distortion. The compact SWM built into the lens offers smooth and quiet autofocus performance that users have come to expect from Nikon autofocus performance.

The useful range, high-quality performance and affordable price of this lens will expand the photographic horizons of Nikon Digital SLR owners.
