Nikon Unveils 18-300mm VR Lens, Their Longest Focal Range to Date

Alongside a big photo leak of the Nikon D600 comes the official announcement of a new lens from Nikon, the NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.6-5.6G ED VR superzoom lens. Nikon are calling it an all-in-one lens and you can see why: the ability to shoot f/5.6 at 300mm could get you some pretty impressive closeups; and with a focal length that goes all the way back down to 18mm, you probably won’t find too many reasons to swap it out.

Set to arrive later this month hand-in-hand with the NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 ED VR, which was also announced today, she’ll cost you $1,000. But for that you get, and we quote, “Nikon’s longest focal range ever, with an astounding 16.7X ultrahigh-ratio zoom range.” Click here for the full press release complete with all the juicy details on both lenses.
