The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a new DX-NIKKOR zoom lens with built-in Silent Wave Motor and Vibration Reduction. 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.
Note. DX-NIKKOR lenses are engineered and optimised for use on Nikon DX-format and FX-format digital SLR cameras. When mounted on an FX-format digital SLR, the camera’s DX-Crop Mode is automatically engaged, altering the image capture area accordingly. DX-NIKKOR lenses are not compatible with 35mm  or IX240 [APS] format film cameras.
