Product Overview

Nikon AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm F3.5-5.6G VR is an entry-level standard zoom lens for Nikon F-mount. It covers the APS-C image circle. Introduced by Nikon in 2016, it has 12 elements in 9 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Nikon AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm F3.5-5.6G VR is externally-zooming. Unfortunately, Nikon has opted to omit weather sealing for this lens, so owners should pay extra attention when shooting in incremental weathers.
A standard zoom lens with moderate aperture, the Nikon AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm F3.5-5.6G VR is more of a "volume seller" than a premium option. Still, some photographers may find the results "good enough". The lens is also stabilized, making it even easier to use for videos and stills alike.
Nikon also markets a non-stabilized version of the same lens for $50 less.
