Nikon unveils new 18-55 DX lens with VR
With only an extra two ounces in weight and mere fractions in length differential, Nikon's DX lens inventory now offers an upgraded option for the standard "kit lens" previously available for their DSLR's.
Extensive testing and customer opinions will be the deciding factor on whether the new AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f3.5-5.6G VR will outsell the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II kit lens version (announced almost exactly a year ago this week).
Depending on where you shop, last year's non-VR 18-55 can be found for as low as $120 USD.
Nikon's Press Release, issued today, puts the suggested retail price of the new lens at $199 USD and forecasts a December 2007 availability date.
