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 vibrationsÑrather than a gear systemÑto 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 ringÑM/A mode enables a seamless transition between auto and manual focusing.
A lifetime of great performance
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 and lightweight.
Silent Wave Motor AF-S NIKKOR lenses feature NikonÕs Silent Wave Motor (SWM). This technology converts Òtraveling wavesÓ into rotational energy to focus the optics. This enables high-speed autofocusing that's extremely accurate and super quiet.
M/A 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.
