The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens is a versatile wide-angle to a telephoto zoom lens for DX-format Nikon DSLRs. With DX sensors it provides the full-frame focal length equivalence of 27-157.5mm incorporating wide-angle to telephoto perspectives. Complementing its multi-application capabilities is a lightweight and compact build and wide zoom ring. This Nikon lens is designed for the DX-format DSLR system. This versatile optic offers much of the benefits of the enormously-popular 18-200mm VR lens but in a lighter, smaller body that takes a smaller filter as well.
The AF-S Silent Wave Motor in the 18-105mm VR yields speedy, silent, on-the-money AF performance with full-time manual focus override. In particular, the AF-S motor keeps up with skittish, erratic subjects that overwhelm normal camera-driven-motor AF systems. You'll get more 'keeper' images of those fast-moving animals, athletes, children, vehicles and the like. Along with the SWM (Silent Wave Motor), the 18-105 benefits from the VR Image Stabilizer built into the lens, which will give you the ability to handhold the camera at shutter speeds up to three stops slower than would otherwise normally be possible. The benefit of in-lens stabilization is seen in the viewfinder, making composing and capturing the image easier as well.
The lens has one aspherical element that is used to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion in order to realize sharp imagery with accurate rendering.
The lens one extra-low dispersion element reduces colour fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to produce greater clarity and colour accuracy.
The lens has a Super Integrated Coating which is applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare and ghosting for improved contrast and colour accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
The lens has seven-blade rounded diaphragm the make out of focus quality benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.
