Today Nikon released a new super-zoom telephoto lens to its legendary Nikkor lineup. The new AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR packs in a 16.7x optical zoom which makes it equivalent to a 27-450mm on a full-frame sensor. The new 18-300 is a much more compact 300mm-class telephoto lens than previous Nikkor 300mmm models and is designed for photographers who want a lightweight solution when shooting long-range on the go.

The new AF-S DX Nikkor 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR is equipped with Nikon's Vibration Reduction system which aids photographers to capture blur-free images even at extreme focal lengths. The lens also features Nikon's compact Silent Wave Motor technology that allows for quick and noise free autofocusing. Additionally, the lens is built out 16 elements in 12 groups, of which three are comprised of extra-low dispersion glass and three aspherical elements.
