The latest telephoto zoom lens from Nikon packs in the highest zoom ratio we've seen on a DX lens - a 16.7x superzoom. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm is geared for travel shooters and others who are willing to sacrifice a little bit optical quality for a whole lot of versatility. Those who take their photography very seriously will tell you that a prime lens is better than a zoom every time — and they're correct. Problem is, carrying around a bag of specific lenses isn't exactly convenient for the average shooter - not to mention the expense of multiple lenses. The Nikon 18-300mm VR super zoom lens is a flexible all-in-one lens that covers most of the bases.
