The AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Lens is VR, not VRII. The only way to confirm definitely if a lens is VR or VRII is to check the product specifications. Gold lettering may indicate either VR or VRII.

No visual way of telling unless it is a lens that originally had VR and was updated to VR II. In that instance the VR printed on the lens would be red and the one with VR II would be gold.

answer 1
  Keep in mind that 50mm is only the “standard” focal length for 35mm film cameras, or for digital cameras that use a sensor of the same size as a standard 35mm frame.  A few of Nikon's higher-end DSLRs use this format (Nikon calls it “FX format”), but most use the smaller APS format (or “DX format”, as Nikon calls it).

  The “standard” focal length for an APS-format camera is about 35mm.  As a rough rule, you can divide any lens focal length for a 35mm camera by about 1.55 to calculate what the comparable focal length would be for a lens to get the same field of view on an APS/DX camera; or multiply a lens focal length for an APS/DX camera by 1.55 to compute what the comparable lens would be for a 35mm/FX camera.

  Note, also, that many lenses are now being made specifically for APS/DX format cameras, being designed only to cover that frame size, and while these lenses will mount on a 35mm/FX camera, they will not cover the full frame.  The “DX” designation as part of the name of a Nikon lens identifies it as such a lens.

  Though I've been doing a lot of experimenting with the old lenses that I have for my forty-year-old F2, mounting them on my D3200, it is just now that I thought to try the opposite.  I just now mounted my AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR on my F2, and fiddled with it while looking through the viewfinder.  It appears that it actually does cover the full frame, as long as it is set to a focal length of about 24mm or longer.  As I zoom out to shorter focal lengths than that, it cuts off the sides of the frame.

A straight 50mm is as close to what the human eye sees. I find that I am trying to get more into the picture that the straight 50mm will not let me. The 18-55mm will allow this and still give you the 50mm only if you want it. More versatile.

answer 3
this one is a general basic zoom that lets you take pictures from the ultrawide (18mm) to the moderate tele (55mm) end. however, its max aperture is varied (gets worse by longer focal length) so it's nowhere near as bright at 50mm (5.6) as the 50/1.8. the latter lens is a fixed focal length lens (a so-called prime) where the zoom is your legs, but due to its brightness and large aperture it's better suited for low-light scenarios and when you need a shallow depth of field - nice subject/background separation.

Question

Manual focus with lens in auto mode?

Is it harmful to turn the focus ring with the lens set to auto (not while focusing is actually taking place, but in standby while in auto)? Any symptoms if damage has been done? Sometimes is slow to focus, but may be normal...

I have this lens, the kit lens I got with my Nikon D5000, and I have been wondering about this also, because J.D. Thomas ("Nikon D5000 Digital Field Guide," p. 6), says: "Rotating the focus ring while the lens is set to autofocus can damage your lens." But David Busch ("Nikon D5000", p. 60) refers to the focus ring as used to "fine-tune autofocus adjustment," which would suggest that when you autofocus you can adjust further manually. That is something that is possible with another DSLR I have. The answer from the "Nikon staff" indicates that it is harmful. It seems peculiar that the D5000 manual does not mention this danger.

To recap, the lens wasn't actually focusing at the time. The ring was moved gently with the switch set to "A", but it was in standby. Seems fine, just takes a second to focus (may be normal, don't know)...

To those at Nikon, what would be the symptoms if damage had been done?

You shouldn't try to manual focus while the lense is autofocusing because the lense uses a silent motor that is controlled by the camera. It sounds like you may have damaged the lense.

These lenses have a switch that you can use it in manual or in Autofocus. If the lens is in A you're going to force the mechanism and may damage the lens.

Question

Photographing the Northern Lights--Infinity Focus or something comparable?

My understanding is it is not possible to focus to infinity using this lens and there is no infinity marker. Is there another way to focus to infinity?

I bought the D5000 camera which came with the Nikon DX Nikkor AF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6G lens. On two prior trips to see the northern lights I was able to focus on the moon; however this time the moon was not up and though I attempted to focus on a distant light on a highway (the only light source around), my photos of the northern lights were almost all out of focus.

I was using a tripod and manual settings, with the focus switch set to manual. ISO, aperture and shutter speeds varied, depending on the lights (as they did on the prior two trips); the only major difference this time was not being able to use the moon to focus prior to the lights appearing (I stayed at the same location each time, so conditions were the same).

Thanks for any info.

answer 1
  I have figured out a way to get this lens to focus at infinity, and stay there.  This is with a D3200 body; the instructions may not apply fully—or even at all—to a different body.

  First with the camera set to autofocus, select a very distant object (far enough to be “infinity” as far as the lens is concerned), point the camera at it, and press the shutter button halfway, to get the camera to focus on that object.

  Make sure the camera is displaying the “Info” display.  If it isn't, press the “Information” button that is just behind the shutter release.

  Next, press the “Information Edit” button at the lower left of the back of the camera.  (Not to be confused with the “Information” button just behind the shutter release.)

  Use the four-way “Multi Selector” to scroll to the autofocus mode setting.  This will be the field that currently shows something starting with “AF-”.  Change this setting to “M” (manual).

  The lens' focus is now set and locked at infinity, and will remain so until either the camera is set back to an autofocus mode, or until the lens' focus mode switch is set to “M”.

  I was puzzled when I first discovered this “M” setting.  It didn't appear to do anything but disable autofocus, leaving the lens' focus stuck wherever it was last focused.  As it happens, that is exactly what we want to do in this case.  With the lens' focus mode switch set to “A”, the focus ring is locked, and will not be turned manually (not unless you apply enough force to damage the focus mechanism, but we do not want to do that).  With the camera's focus mode set to “M”, it won't try to autofocus.  So the lens will stay focused as it was set in the first step above, at infinity.

  As it happens, the “M” setting on the camera anticipates a feature that some other lenses might implement—but which this one does not—whereby selecting this mode from the camera will unlock the manual focus ring, even if the lens' own setting is left on autofocus.  With this lens, it just leaves the lens' focus set and locked to wherever it was last set—not what Nikon intended, but useful in this case.

answer 2
  It does seem to be an unfortunate thing about these modern cameras and lenses that are meant to work automatically, that while they provide some ability to operate them manually, manual operation does not work nearly as well with them as it would on a more primitive camera/lens that is intended to be operated manually.

  In particular, one thing I have noticed about this lens is that while you can manually focus it, it is imprecise and unmarked.  Any other lens, if I turn the focus all the way in the infinity direction until it stops, it is at infinity.  This lens, on the other hand, will actually focus past infinity; taking you to a hyperopic setting where nothing will be in focus.  To focus it manually at infinity requires the same guesswork as focusing it at any other shorter distance.

  Short of buying a suitable manual-focus lens, the best advice I can offer is to try to focus on something like the moon or a distant light, and try to use as small an aperture as you reasonably can, to give yourself some reasonable room to be imprecise with your focusing.

Unfortunately, the 18-55 lens does not have an infinity marker, and we do not support any other method of manually focusing the 18-55 lens at infinity. It is always best to use the right tools for the job, especially in photography. It would be best to purchase a lens with an infinity marker.

Teleconverters interfere with the calibrated engineering of the lens as well as losing your auto-focus ability in most cases. I professionally would not recommend using teleconverters.

You can only adjust the aperture in Aperture Priority or manual modes. It doesn't have an aperture ring like the D series because all changing in done inside of the camera modes. If you are saying that while you are in one of those modes that the aperture is not able to be adjusted and you suspect it is the lens, send it to Nikon so it can be checked.

I suppose that you are talking about an AF zoom lens? The lowest f stop will depend on the focal length of the zoom. If you are are the wide angle end, you will get the lowest f-stop for the lighting. If you are the telephoto end, you will get highest, depending on the lighting.

That's wht the lens says f/3.5-5.6. It means the lens can go to f/3.5 at 18mm but only to f/5.6 at 55mm - the maximum aperture changes depending on the zoom. Try zooming back to maximum aperture (18mm) and you should be able to use f/3.5

A tuilip hood is not suitable for this lens because it is not internal focusing - the front element (hood included) rotates when it focuses.

No! You might look into a rubber hood which can be folded back when using the lens at it's widest angle. Rubber is nice as you can take scissors to it and modify to your needs. You are not going to find a hood that works well throughout the range of the lens, it's the nature of the beast.

Question

I want a compact lens with more zoom & still take close range picture also. I switch between two lens. I also have AF-S NIKKOR 70-300mm 1:4.5-5.6G. I love the zoom but when useing the camera outside or trips it can be a big heavy and large. Is there a lens that would give me close zoom to it, yet be a smaller lens?

Have a look at the 18-105, small but has a bit more reach than your 18-55.

Not quite as much reach but smaller and lighter plus you only have to carry one lens.
