The AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm F3.5-6.3G ED VR is a more compact version of Nikon's existing 18-300mm F3.5-5.6 superzoom DX-format lens. It's 30% lighter and 21mm shorter than its predecessor. To reduce the size, the optics have been changed, with 16 elements in 12 groups. The maximum aperture at its telephoto end has risen from F5.6 to F6.3, and the aperture has 7 rounded blades, down from 9. When mounted to a DX-format body, the lens is equivalent to 27-450mm.
