The Nikon 18-105mm AF-S DX Nikkor f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens is a compact 5.8x zoom lens with built-in Silent Wave Motor and Vibration Reduction which covers a broad focal range of 18-105mm. This lens delivers a picture angle equivalent to that produced by a 27-157.5mm focal length lens on a 35mm format film camera, when mounted on any DX-format Nikon digital SLR camera. A high power lens that is the ideal companion for your Nikon digital SLR in a wide range of shooting situations, the Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 ED VR lens is particularly great for wide-angle landscapes and interiors, to portraiture and medium-range sports. The Nikon 18-105mm AF-S DX Nikkor f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens can shoot wide angle through to super-telephoto, making it two great, useful lenses in one.

Silent Wave Motor
The Nikon super-compact Silent Wave Motor (SWM) is built into the lens body and ensures that the Nikon 18-105mm lens delivers fast, accurate and near-silent autofocus operation, complementing the stylish design of the lens.
Specifically engineered for each individual Nikkor lens, Nikon's Vibration Reduction technology enables photographers to shoot handheld at shutter speeds up to three stops slower than would otherwise be possible. Blur caused by camera shake is dramatically reduced, producing visibly clearer, sharper images, especially when shooting in difficult conditions like badly lit interiors or at dusk. Vibration Reduction on the Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 ED VR lens also helps stabilise the viewfinder image, making composition more comfortable and easier to achieve.
The innovative design of the optical system with ED glass element and advanced aspherical lens element, means that the Nikon 18-105mm AF-S DX Nikkor f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens is able to produce excellent quality image reproduction, delivering high-resolution, high-contrast images while minimising chromatic aberration. This Nikon lens also features a rounded diaphragm opening which helps make out-of-focus elements appear more natural, while Nikon's Super Integrated Coating ensures that your pictures have outstanding colour balance and reproduction, and that ghosting and flare is minimised.
