Nikon quality images
Advanced technologies for better photos
Despite its affordable price and compact size, the AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II offers some of the advanced Nikon technologies of more expensive lenses. Nikons Super Integrated Coating provides higher contrast and more vivid images while minimizing ghosting and flare. An Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element minimizes chromatic aberration for superior optical performance.
Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikons Silent Wave Motor, which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.
A-M stands for Auto-Manual Mode. Thanks to a mechanism incorporated in the lens barrel, smooth focusing operation in Manual focus mode is realized in the same way as users have become accustomed to with conventional manual-focus lenses by adding an appropriate torque to the focus ring.
