This high-performance lens is equipped with two ED and three aspherical lens elements for superior optical performance, yet weighs just 385 g and is compact enough to offer excellent portability. The AF-S NIKKOR 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED is also equipped with a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) for quiet autofocusing, as well as two focus modes—autofocus with manual override (M/A) and manual focus (M)—for excellent functionality.
