Nikon Introduces $200 18-55mm VR Lens

Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Lens

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.

Nikon’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.
