Nikon DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens- With enhanced VR system
Nikon have today announced their new AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED lens.

Compact, lightweight and packed with an array of advanced features, the AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor lens offers 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED focal range length and 11.1x zoom coupled with Nikon ED glass, Silent Wave Motor and enhanced Vibration Reduction (VR II).

Nikon state that the VR II feature enables significantly sharper handheld images at slower shutter speeds and in a wider range of lighting conditions than previous models. Equipped with the new lens, users can take pictures at shutter speeds up to four times slower than is possible with a non-VR lens.

The combination of the VR II technology, the 11x zoom feature and the focal length range equivalent to a 27mm-300mm lens in 35mm format means the AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor is an ideal total package for dedicated amateurs and professionals alike.

Nikons second generation VR technology offers users two modes to match different shooting conditions. First, the VR Normal Mode, which compensates for camera shake and includes automatic panning detection, as well as automatic tripod detection. And second, VR Active Mode, which compensates for pronounced or regular vibration, for example when shooting from a moving vehicle.

Like all AF-S Nikkors, the AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED features the compact Silent Wave Motor which enables high-speed autofocus that is not only extremely accurate but also super quiet, making it ideal for wildlife photography. In addition, the new lens has a minimum focus distance of 0.5m applicable to the entire zoom range.

LOL! I was just thinking of putting my 18-70 (and 70-300) on eBay! I'll wait to see what the 18-200's distortion's like, though, first..
