Nikon India has announced the new NIKKOR lenses – AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55MM F/3.5-5.6G VR and AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55MM F/3.5-5.6G for achieving striking shots. The company has not disclosed the exact schedule of their availability and its prices, but stated that these will be available in 2016.
AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55MM F/3.5-5.6G VR and AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55MM F/3.5-5.6G lenses cover a normal zoom range of 18-55mm focal length and both lenses provide a natural viewpoint of getting close to a subject or capturing landscape compositions. Being unobtrusive and discreet, yet quick to seize a shot, they utilise stepping motors to drive autofocus performance, positioning these lenses as the first AF-P lenses for Nikon DLSR cameras. Additionally, clarity of each shot is enhanced with utilisation of aspherical lens elements that effectively suppress various types of aberrations. A VR mechanism engineered with the AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55MM F/3.5-5.6G VR also gives a camera shake compensation equivalent to a shutter speed effect of 4.0 stops faster to help further minimise any effects from sudden external movements.
Both lenses are compact in size and do not take up too much space in a backpack or luggage. Retractable barrels fitted into each lens’ compact build contribute to keeping the lenses portable.
“At Nikon, we have a legacy of designing lenses that combine innovative optics and lighter packaging. New NIKKOR AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55MM F/3.5-5.6G VR and AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55MM F/3.5-5.6G follow the suit. Both these lenses draw their respective form and function from renowned NIKKOR technology expertise of compelling autofocus performance, advanced optical elements, and excellent agility thus making an excellent companion for every photographer”, said Mr. Sajjan Kumar, Vice President – Imaging Division, Nikon India Pvt.
