The AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is designed for Nikon’s DX-series digital SLRs with APS-C sized image sensors. On a Nikon DX DSLR, the 18-300mm would become equivalent to a 27 to 450mm lens because of the APS-C chip’s 1.5x magnification factor.
Total zoom range of the new Nikkor 18-300mm would be 16.7x. The lens goes on sale in late June for $999.95.
When the 18-300mm lens is closed down, length is 3.3 inches by 4.7 inches. When zoomed out to the full 300mm, its becomes approximately double that size. Weight is 29.3 ounces.
“It’s the longest zoom ratio we’ve ever made,” said Steve Heiner, Nikon’s Senior Technical Manager. “It looks like Nikon’s 18-200mm lens on steroids.”
The AF-S Nikkor 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR lens is designed for Nikon’s full-frame FX-format DSLRs. It will sell in late June for $599.95.
