The Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-P VR DX

The Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-P VR DX is a normal range kit lens for DX, cropped-sensor Nikon cameras. Key features include:

DX Standard Zoom. The full-frame equivalent range of 27-82.5mm makes this a suitable walk-around lens covering everything from a moderately wide angle to a short telephoto. The variable f/3.5-5.6 aperture helps keep the size and weight to a minimum.

High-Quality Optics. Twelve elements in nine groups, including two aspherical elements help keep images sharp, while minimizing distortions and vignetting. The seven-blade rounded aperture keeps the bokeh pretty nice and pleasant to look at.

Optical Image Stabilization. The 18-55’s VR image stabilization is rated for up to four stops of compensation.

Fast Focus. The AF-P Stepping Motor makes for fast, silent autofocus with an instant manual-focus override.

Compatibility. Sadly, if you don’t own one of the latest generation or two of the lower DX DSLRs, you still may be stuck with older lenses. The D7100 and D7200 can’t turn off VR, which is a shame.

It’s difficult at this point to say what’s going on with AF-P. Nikon seems to be making a pivot of some kind, but they’ve done almost nothing to help users of their previous Nikon DSLR bodies come along with wherever that pivot is leading them.

So here are our conclusions:

D3400, D5500, and D5600 users: This is the basic telephoto zoom to use, no questions asked.


D500, D3300, and D5300 users: If you have the current firmware, this is probably the basic telephoto lens to use
.

D5200, D7100, and D7200 users: Note that you can’t set VR to off. If that’s okay with you, consider this lens
.

All other older DX users: Don’t buy this lens.
