Nikon AF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II Lens

Make the most of your DX-format DSLRs with the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II Lens. With its large focal range, you can take photos from portraits to landscapes with ease. Vibration Reduction ensures sharp handheld images, while special lens elements and advanced lens coating provide superior optical performance. This zoom lens is a great all-rounder for both enthusiasts and professionals who are travelling light.

Powerful 11.1x Zoom

On a 35mm sensor, the powerful 11.1x zoom offers a focal range equivalent to 27mm to 300mm. This flexibility allows you to capture portraits at telephoto distances to wide angle panoramic landscapes.

Wide Aperture Range

A bright maximum of f/3.5-5.6 makes it easy to shoot daylight handheld photos with a shallow depth of field, great for portraits. On the other end of the scale, the minimum aperture of f/22-36 captures landscapes in sharp detail.

Built-in Vibration Reduction System

Nikon's VR II system provides camera shake compensation, so you can leave the tripod at home. Reducing hand-held blur at shutter speeds up to four times slower, this is especially useful for shooting at longer focal lengths or in dimly lit conditions.

Normal and Active VR Modes

Two VR modes offer stability and versatility. While the Normal VR Mode is effective in reducing handheld camera shake, the Active VR mode minimises extreme camera shake from shooting in moving vehicles or in windy conditions.

Silent Wave Motor Autofocus

Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) ensures quiet, fast and precise focusing, vital for capturing sharp images of fast moving subjects. The full-time manual focus override lets you fine tune your focus by simply turning the comfortable focus ring.

Internal Focus System

Thanks to the internal lens focus system, the lens retains its physical length as you focus for faster AF performance while reducing aberrations and focus breathing. Its non-rotating filter threads also allow for orientation-sensitive filters like polarised and graduated ND filters.

Zoom Lock

Boasting a zoom lock switch, the lens barrel can be secured into its smallest form to protect against damage in transport.

ED and Aspherical Elements

Engineered from 16 elements in 12 groups, the lens boasts two Extra-low Dispersion glass elements and three aspherical lenses. This controls chromatic aberration, astigmatism and optical distortion for vivid colours and high resolution across the entire zoom range.

Minimised Flare and Ghosting

Optical performance in bright lighting conditions is further optimised thanks to the multi-layer Super Integrated Coating (SIC). Reducing ghosting and flares, the special lens elements and advanced coating works with the included lens hood to block stray light, delivering sharp contrast and accurate colour reproduction.

Compact Size

The Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-200 mm f3.5-5.6G ED VR II Lens is easily portable, making it a versatile choice for photographers travelling light.
