Our Verdict

As the first Nikon ‘AF-P’ DSLR lens, it uses stepping motors to drive quiet and fast autofocusing, so is particularly suitable for video recording but works well across most applications.

The Vibration Reduction technology allows for blur-free shots, even in low light, and its portability ensures it is suitable for many conditions.

We Love
  • The stepping motor which produces quiet, quick, and precise focussing
  • The compact and lightweight highly portable design
  • The ability to switch auto or manual focus and also VR in the camera menu
Product features in detail


The AF-P lens ensures fast and quiet autofocusing thanks to the inclusion of a stepping motor - a first for NIKKOR lenses. As you zoom in, the subject will come into focus instantly and precisely and when shooting video, you can shift focus with almost no drive noise. 

Vibration Reduction technology

Clear and blur-free images come as standard with this VR technology - even in low light conditions. This provides an effect equivalent to a shutter speed 4 stops faster. You can turn the Vibration Reduction on or off using the camera menu. 

Retractable lens mechanism

The retractable lens mechanism allows for high portability and means it is easy to quickly pack away or keep attached, depending on your requirements. 

Switching of auto and manual focus

This is the first Nikon lens where you can switch between manual focus and auto focus with the camera menu. As there are no switches on the lens barrel, you won’t change settings by mistake mid-shot.

Aspherical elements

The lens contains two aspherical elements which reduce spherical aberration and other distortions to ensure sharp, clear imagery with strong contrast and vivid colours.
