Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm F3.5-5.6G ED VR

Announced Jun 14, 2012 •
Lens | Nikon F (DX)
dpreview conclusion

Nikon's AF-S Nikkor 18-300mm F3.5-5.6 VR lens offers the longest zoom range currently available for any interchangeable lens camera system. But this comes with all of the usual optical compromises associated with a superzoom, in a large, heavy package. It's also much more expensive than third party alternatives.
