Exceptional photos and videos
Nikon technology for high-performance
The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR features some of Nikon’s most advanced lens technologies to ensure the highest quality of images and videos. Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating (SIC) enhances contrast and color quality while reducing flare and ghosting. An Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element minimizes chromatic aberration for superior optical performance. Aspherical lens elements reduce distortion, even at the widest aperture settings. And Nikon’s exclusive Silent Wave Motor enables fast, ultra-quiet and precise focusing.
*Based on CIPA Standard. This value is achieved when: DX-format lenses are attached to a DX-format digital SLR camera and zoom lenses are set at the maximum telephoto position.
A Nikon in-lens technology that improves image stability by automatically compensating for camera shake. Lenses that offer VR will feature the abbreviation VR on the lens barrel.
Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor, which represents a significant advance in AF lens technology.
ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain types of lens aberration.
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
