The AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Lens from Nikon is a wide-angle zoom lens compatible with both FX and DX-sized image sensors. It features three aspherical lens elements and two ED (extra-low dispersion) elements to reduce chromatic aberrations and improve image sharpness, clarity, and colour. A multilayer Super Integrated Coating is applied to the lens elements to improve light transmission and reduce ghosting and flare. A Silent Wave Motor provides fast and near silent auto focus, and manual override (M/A) is also available for precise focusing. Its minimum focus distance is 11".
