Product Description

Perfect for interior shots, this wide-angle zoom lens delivers high-resolution and superior contrast.

Strengthening the FX-format line-up even further, the compact AF-S NIKKOR 18–35mm f/3.5–4.5G ED lens from Nikon brings superb wide-angle to standard zoom versatility. With exceptionally high optical performance, using an abundance of Nikon’s advanced lens technologies, the AF-S NIKKOR 18–35mm f/3.5–4.5G ED offers enthusiast photographers an affordable way to discover a new approach to wide-angle photography. Achieving equally fine resolution from infinity to the closest subjects, this wide-angle zoom lens is ideal for capturing beautiful architectural compositions, detailed cityscapes, and vibrant travel photographs.

Exceptional Performance

Representing great craftsmanship and outstanding image quality, Nikon has created this wide-angle zoom lens with f/3.5–4.5 aperture, covering a broad range of focal length, from an impressively wide 18mm to the standard 35mm[1]. At 18mm, the wide-angle perspective brings more of what you see into the frame, perfect for shots of enclosed spaces, architecture and landscapes, as well as group shots. Zoom all the way in and you capture a more natural 35mm distortion-free wide-angle shot, ideal for general photography and capturing spur-of-the-moment street life in a bustling city.

The inclusion of two ED and three aspherical elements helps eliminate aberrations and distortion in a lightweight highly portable package.

Strikingly Crisp

Delivering the clarity and detail your photography deserves, the lens comprises 12 elements in 8 groups, in a design incorporating two ED and three aspherical lens elements. The iris diaphragm has seven rounded blades for a soft rendering effect, producing high-quality natural backgrounds. Featuring a newly designed optical formula, the ED elementswork together with the aspherical elements to help eliminate aberrations and distortion ensuring high resolution and superior contrast. Also, with the application of Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating, the effects of ghost and flare on the lens are reduced to a negligible level even in backlit situations.

Switching Focus

Combining ease-of-use and maximum precision, the AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5–4.5G ED lens has two focus modes. In addition to Manual focus, Manual-priority autofocus (M/A) allows you to switch from autofocus to manual operation with virtually no time lag, even during AF servo operation and regardless of the AF mode in use. This gives all the benefits of fast, automatic focusing while still retaining the ability to make fine focus adjustments before taking the shot.

Silent Precision

Nikon's AF-S technology is yet another reason why photographers like NIKKOR lenses. Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor (SWM) converts travelling waves into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that’s extremely accurate and super quiet. So for discrete shooting you can set up the shot in an instant and camera focusing won’t disturb sensitive subjects like wildlife.

Intelligent System

The AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5–4.5G ED lens was built with long-lasting durability and portability in mind. Using a high proportion of magnesium in its construction, this sturdy lens weighs in at an economical 385g, providing well-balanced handling. Allowing for a more compact design, Nikon's Internal focus (IF) technology limits all the optical movement to the interior of the non-extending lens barrel. This intelligent system enables a close minimum focus distance to be retained throughout the zoom range at or below 28cm (less than 1ft). Also, with a weather-sealed mount protecting both the lens and camera it’s an ideal choice for the adventurous enthusiast.

Optimised for use with high-resolution, full-frame digital SLR cameras, the AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5–4.5G ED lens from Nikon is the carry-anywhere lens that delivers great results in the widest range of shooting situations.
