AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR

Nikon's new zoom lens with wide-angle to super-telephoto reach and Vibration Reduction boasts an ultra-high 16.7x zoom ratio and a wide 18-300mm focal range.

The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens comes with a lens case (CL-1120), a hood (HB-58) and will be available from 28 June 2012 with an RRP of £849.99.

Simon Iddon, Product Manager for Enthusiast Products, at Nikon UK said: "This new 18-300mm lens is ideal for photographers looking to travel light – it’s a versatile lens that allows you to capture a whole range of scenes with ease, thanks to its remarkable zoom range."

From Nikon UK:

All In One

With its versatile wide-angle to super-telephoto reach, this 16.7x zoom lens is perfect for travel or for times when you only want to take one lens out with you. The remarkable 18-300mm focal range (FX-format/35mm equivalent: 27 to 450mm) easily covers most commonly used focal lengths, going further than many comparable lenses by offering 300mm reach and a maximum aperture of f/5.6 at the telephoto end of the range. From wide landscapes to tight portraits and action photography, this lens will capture it all.

Sharp And Steady

Complementing the versatile focal range is Nikon’s second-generation Vibration Reduction system (VRII) — that allows substantially sharper handheld images across the zoom range and dramatically reduces image blur, even when taking extreme telephoto shots. Three Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass and three aspherical lens elements provide high resolution and superior contrast, and the nine blade rounded diaphragm opening makes out-of-focus elements blend together smoothly. Nikon's compact Silent Wave Motor technology (SWM) combines fast and precise auto focus with super-quiet operation.

Built To Travel

A practical zoom-lock switch keeps the lens secure when not in use, and it boasts a metal mount with rubber sealing for protection against dust and moisture.

Seems to be the answer for an all round travel lens but at 850 I will need convincing.
I think I will wait for some test results and for the price to come down, perhaps the price of the 18-200 will drop as a result of this extra reach

This lens is over double the price of the Tamron 18-270 so it will have to be outstandlingly superior to justify the price
