Two New Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G Lenses Announced

Nikon announced two new DX lenses: AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR and AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G. The new AF-P stands for “fast and quiet AF with adoption of a stepping motor for AF drive operation”. These are the first “AF-P” lenses for Nikon DSLR cameras, utilizing stepping motors to drive AF for fast and quiet autofocusing. In addition, they have a compact and lightweight design for which retractable barrels were adopted for excellent portability.

  • “AF-P” lenses that achieve fast and quiet AF with adoption of a stepping motor for AF drive operation
  • Compact and lightweight 3.1x 18-55mm (effective angles of view equivalent to those of a lens with 27-82.5mm focal lengths in 35mm format) normal zoom lenses utilizing a retractable barrel and compatible with the Nikon DX format
