New Nikon Lenses Announced
Nikon just announced two new telephoto zoom lenses and one of them has the longest focal range of the series yet.
“Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, the world's first interchangeable zoom lens for D-SLR cameras to offer the world's highest zoom ratio* of 16.7x, compatible with the DX format.” - Nikon Press Release
Nikkor AF-S DX 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
If you want a single lens that can cover every imaginable shooting situation, from wide-angle groups to ultra-high-power zoom shots, look no further than the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18–300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR. Boasting the longest reach of any NIKKOR all-in-one zoom lens, it delivers the equivalent of 450mm—enough reach to bring the most distant action up close. Nikon's second generation VR II technology ensures every photo and HD video is razor-sharp, and Nikon's advancements in lens design deliver consistent, exceptional performance in any setting. It's also great for close-up shooting. Even more amazing, the AF-S NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR does all this in a surprisingly compact, lightweight lens.
Nikkor AF-S 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR
Covering a versatile wide angle to medium telephoto zoom range, the AF-S NIKKOR 24–85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR delivers noticeably sharper photos and HD videos thanks to Nikon's second-generation Vibration Reduction technology (VR II). Shoot at shutter speeds up to 4-times slower than would otherwise be possible for greater low-light capability, and enjoy the benefits of Vibration Reduction during HD video recording—even when using a tripod.
