Typically supplied as the 'kit' zoom with Nikon's midrange DX (APS-C) DSLRs, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm F/3.5-5.6G ED VR covers an effective focal length range of 27-157mm and incorporates features such as Nikon's Extra Low Dispersion (ED) glass, Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) and Enhanced Vibration Reduction (VR II). A great 'first lens' for owners of a D5000 or D7000-class DSLR, the somewhat distortion-prone 18-105mm trades critical image quality for versatility.
