    Official Press release

    New NIKKOR 18-55mm Lenses From Nikon – A Complement to Every Kit Bag

    Compact and lightweight new AF-P lenses for captivating performance in daily photography



    SINGAPORE – Fitting perfectly into every camera bag and achieving striking shots from wanderlust explorations to new locale experiences, are 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 announced by Nikon Singapore Pte. Ltd. today.

    Capturing shots of unique dining experiences or treasured commemorative seconds get almost effortless with excellent portability from both lenses. Enjoy uninterrupted moments with fast, quiet autofocusing from the first AF-P lenses from Nikon, and remember memories in clarity with the assistance of refined lens optical performance and Vibration Reduction (VR) mechanism*1.

    “Both lenses draw its respective form and function from renowned NIKKOR technology expertise of compelling autofocus performance, advanced optical elements, and excellent agility,” said Hiroaki Ono, General Manager of International Marketing Division Imaging Group, Nikon Singapore Pte. Ltd. “The AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR and AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G lens make perfect matches for anyone making their first foray into photography with DSLR cameras.”

    AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR and AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G Primary Features:

    Seizing functionality without fuss
    Covering a normal zoom range of 18-55mm focal length*2, 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*3 faster to help further minimise any effects from sudden external movements.

    Grab and go
    Both lenses are a breeze to carry on travels 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 and ready for any photography adventure.
