An ideal companion for Nikon's newest, smallest and most affordably-priced D40 digital SLR, the 18-55mm II Zoom-Nikkor lens will be included with D40 digital SLR kits.
The new AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II has been specially developed to provide a compact DX lens equipped with Nikon's compact SWM (Silent Wave Motor) that offers fast, quiet and smooth autofocus performance.
Further ensuring exceptional image quality, the AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II features an ED glass element, minimizing chromatic aberration, and a hybrid aspherical lens element to reduce astigmatism and other forms of distortion while ensuring high resolution and contrast. The external lens design has also been improved for smoother zoom operability.
The lens offers users the popular 3x 18-55mm focal length range, which conveniently covers picture angles that meet the needs of everything from tight portraits to wide-angle landscapes
