From the Manufacturer
One outstanding lens; endless beautiful memories.
The world is full of amazing views—some right in front of us, others far in the distance. Capture all of them beautifully with a single lens, the outstanding all-in-one telephoto zoom AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR. Surprisingly compact and lightweight for a 16.7x zoom lens, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR draws great performance from Nikon DX-format D-SLRs and is a highly versatile second lens. Shoot wide-angle scenic landscapes and group photos, portraits with softly blurred backgrounds, super-telephoto close-ups and everything in between—if you can see it, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR can capture it. Optimized for shooting both stills and HD videos, it features specialized Vibration Reduction technology for tack-sharp photos and steady videos, even when your hands are a bit shaky. And since it's a NIKKOR, it features some of the best optics available. Whether you're looking for maximum versatility in a lens or you're just the kind of photographer who finds inspiration all around, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR will help you capture more of life's great views.
16.7x wide-angle to super-telephoto zoom
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR can do just about anything—stills, videos, landscapes, interiors, portraits, wildlife...you name it. Its massive zoom range goes from wide-angle (27mm equivalent in 35mm) all the way to super-telephoto (450mm equivalent in 35mm), so you can catch stunning close-ups of concert performers and athletes as easily as wide scenic shots. Its compact, balanced design and Vibration Reduction technology help keep photos sharp and videos steady, and the lens' fast, quiet autofocus system minimizes camera noise during video recording.
Sharper photos and video
Vibration Reduction image stabilization
A little camera shake can ruin an otherwise great photos or video, especially when shooting at super-telephoto distances. To combat camera shake, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR features Nikon's Vibration Reduction technology, which provides 4.0 stops* of blur-free handheld shooting. Capture crisp, clear photos and steady videos even if your hands are a bit unsteady. Additionally, VR is a big advantage in low-light situations—slow down your shutter speed without compromising sharpness.
Reliable, inspiring performance
Superb image quality and consistency
Like all renowned NIKKOR lenses, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR delivers stunning image quality—vibrant color, sharp detail, and minimal distortion. To enhance that superb optical performance and increase its versatility as both a photo and video lens, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR includes Nikon's advanced lens technologies like Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for ultra-fast, near-silent autofocusing, three Aspherical (AS) and Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass elements for maximum contrast and minimal lens flare and ghosting, a rounded 7-blade diaphragm for beautiful, natural background blur and Internal Focusing (IF) for a more compact, streamlined lens design.

Top Customer Reviews
I initially bought this lens specifically for walking around street photography use. But after just coming off a three day nature and landscape shoot with the 18-300, I'm thoroughly impressed. What stood out to me (other than obviously not having to keep changing lenses), was the fast accurate focusing, especially in low-light situations. The 18-300 was amazing in this category! There were many times I was sure the focusing would be off, but I was wrong. I was pleasantly surprised to see that all my images were (at the responsibility of the lens) razor-sharp.
Then there's the convenience. Concentrating on getting the shot, and not having to constantly change lenses IS everything it's cracked up to be. Although not my intentions, during the entire three days I never brought my 16-85 or 70-300 out of the bag. Didn't need to. The only other lens I used was my Nikon 10-24. Yes, the 18-300 is a tad slower at the longer length than my 70-300, but I never missed the small difference. And did I mention the light weight of the 18-300?
The only slight negative was a little lens creep. But the 18-300 has a lock for this if needed.
I have eight other Nikon lenses, and this lens is so good, this is the first time I've felt compelled to write a review.
So, my recommendation: Don't listen to all the "holier-than-thou" critics on the Nikon forums that claim this lens is a waste of Nikon time. No, it's not a "professional lens" not a 2.8 and it doesn't cost thousands of dollars. But it's a damn great lens. You won't be disappointed. Needless to say, I certainly wasn't.
Update** I have now had this lens for a few months, and I am still more and more impressed with it. I have managed to take a few pictures that have now been rated in the top 50 trending on the National Geographic User Submitted Photos page. The capability and portability of this lens are just getting better and better. I am including some more photographs, now that I have had a chance to expand on it some.
I replaced and sold my 18-200mm, and my 55-300mm for this one.
It is true, and I was a bit mystified, that this lens does not come with a lens bag or a lens hood. But on the other hand, the Nikon lens bags do nothing to protect the lens in any way. So I always buy my own. And as far as the lens hood goes, ken Rockwell recommends you leave it home anyways when using this lens.
I've taken a few shots and the images are impressive to my non-technical eyes. I believe, as my research concludes, that this lens is just as good if not better than the lens it replaces,
