Nikon Inc. introduced a new AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens, alongside the new D90 Digital SLR camera. It contains a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) and Vibration Reduction (VR) Image Stabilization technology.
The new lens includes the integration of an Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element and an advanced aspherical lens element. This lens also contains Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating to reduce lens flare.
This lens is scheduled to be available at Nikon dealers in September, 2008 at an estimated selling price of $399.95. It will also be available as part of the D90 18-105mm VR lens kit for an estimated selling price of $1299.95.
EDITOR’S NOTE: While I don’t buy DX (crop sensor) lenses, if I did, I’d be very tempted by this one. It’s a great focal range and includes all the new technology. Paired with a D90, it could certainly be a very popular kit.
