"AF-P" Lenses that Achieve Quick and Quiet AF

Nikon AF-P DX 8-55mm f/3.5-5.6G Lens

Newly-designated AF-P lens that provides AF drive using a stepping motor — a first for NIKKOR SLR lenses*

The the first Nikon AF-P lenses with the “P” indicating that the lenses make use of a stepping motor for quick and quiet autofocusing.

There are a pair of variants of the new Nikkor AF-P DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6: a VR thats stabilized and a non-VR one that leaves it off.

Nikon’s AF-P lenses are the new rivals to the Canon STM (Smooth Transitions for Motion) lenses, which also employ stepping motors for smooth and nearly-silent focusing — ideal for those who need to acquire high-quality movies.

Additionally, the lens features a compact and lightweight form factor for which retractable barrels are utilized for their excellent portability, and the use of a pair of aspherical lens elements has produced superior optical performance with which diverse types of aberration, which includes distortion and spherical aberration, are effectively diminished.

* Because AF-P lenses make use of a stepping motor, compatible cameras are limited. Even for compatible cameras, update of firmware may be necessary.
