Nikon is releasing this December a $200 18-55mm lens equipped with its Vibration Reduction feature.
The new affordable AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens will be marketed as a first lens for use with Nikon DX-format digital SLR cameras such as the D40, D40x, D80 and the new D300.
Nikon says the new lens offers a versatile picture angle perspective ranging from wide angle for dramatic landscapes and interiors, to moderate telephoto that is ideal for flattering portraits.
Nikonâ€™s VR system allows users to take pictures at shutter speeds up to three stops slower than they ordinarily could shoot without the image-degrading blur caused by camera shake at slow shutter speeds.
