Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Lens, Model 2207
Versatile wide angle (18mm) to standard view (35mm) full-frame FX-format zoom
lens that's particularly well suited for travel and video applications. Shoot
wide-angle shots of interiors, architecture, landscapes and group portraits,
or zoom in for a standard view that mimics the field of view of our eyes.
- A versatile, affordable wide-angle to standard view FX-format zoom lens.
Now you can cover the highly useful zoom range of 18mm to 35mm (27–52.5mm
on DX-format cameras) with a great performing full-frame NIKKOR lens that
doesn't carry a professional's price tag. Shoot beautiful wide-angle architectural
shots, landscapes, group portraits and more; then zoom in for a natural field
of view that is slightly wider than what we see with our eyes. You can even
get as close as 0.92-feet from your subject! And since the AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm
f/3.5-4.5G ED is powered by Nikon's Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for ultra-fast,
ultra-quiet autofocusing, it's an ideal choice for video applications.
- Wide-angle to standard zoom versatility
The AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED is an excellent travel and all-purpose
lens. Its 18mm wide-angle perspective brings more of what you see into the
frame, ideal for shooting indoors or in close quarters, capturing architecture
and landscapes as well as group portraits. But zoom all the way in, and you
get a natural 35mm perspective that mimics the field of view of our eyes,
ideal for just about any photo or video application
- Ultra-fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing
The AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED is powered by Nikon's innovative Silent
Wave Motor (SWM). This extraordinary focusing motor uses ultrasonic vibrations—rather
than a gear system—to spin the lens barrel, resulting in nearly silent and
ultra-fast autofocusing. If you want to override the AF system, simply take
control of the focusing ring—M/A mode enables a seamless transition between
auto and manual focusing.
- Nikon lens technologies for consistently stunning images
Nikon's innovations in optical design and lens technology have paved the way
for more affordable high-performance lenses like the AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G
ED. Two Extra-low Dispersion (ED) elements produce superior sharpness and
color correction, and three Aspherical Lens (AS) elements virtually eliminate
certain types of aberration. A rounded 7-blade diaphragm produces softer,
more natural backgrounds, and Internal Focusing (IF) keeps the lens compact
- Silent Wave Motor
AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature Nikon’s Silent Wave Motor (SWM), which represents
a significant advance in AF lens technology. SWM uses ultrasonic vibrations—rather
than a gear system—to focus the lens, providing incredibly smooth, silent
and precise autofocus operation.
Select NIKKOR lenses have a focusing mode which allows switching from automatic
to manual focusing with virtually no lag time by simply turning the focusing
ring on the lens. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual
focusing while looking through the viewfinder.
AS stands for Aspherical lens elements. This type of lens utilizes non-spherical
surfaces on either one or both sides of the glass in order to eliminate certain
types of lens aberration.
- Super Integrated Coating
Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating
of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
- ED (Extra-Low Dispersion) Glass
An optical glass developed by Nikon that is used with normal optical glass
in telephoto lenses to obtain optimum correction of chromatic aberrations.
- IF Lens
A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing.
Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact,
lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will
be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.
