      Answer

      The one main difference between these two AF-S 18-300mm lenses is the weight; the Product 2216 (f/3.5-6.3G) lens is 19.6 ounces as compared to the Product 2196 (f/3.5-5.6) lens, which is 29.3 ounces. This is because there are more elements in the Product 2196 lens than in the Product 2216 lens which improve the user experience. In addition there is a focus distance indicator on the lens barrel of Product 2196 along with an extra setting option for Vibration Reduction. To learn more about differences in lens types please contact Nikon Support.

    Is the 18-300 prone to "lens creep" like the 18-200?   (2 Answers)

      Answer

      The 18-300mm lens is not prone to zoom creep. It has a zoom lock that prevents the lens from extending under its own weight while the camera is being carried from place to place.

      This lens allows you to switch from manual to automatic with virtually no lag time, by simply turning the focusing ring on the barrel. This makes it possible to seamlessly switch to fine manual focusing while looking through the viewfinder.

      The Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens (Product 2196) listed here does have some differences from the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3G ED VR lens (Product 2216). One of the differences is weight; the 18-300mm (Product 2196) lens listed here is 29.3 ounces while the Nikon 18-300mm (Product 2216) lens is a lighter 19.6 ounces. This is because there are more elements in the listed (Product 2196) lens than with the 18-300mm (Product 2216) lens. Another difference is that the AF-S 18-300 (Product 2196) has second generation Vibration Reduction technology that allows it to have exceptional sharpness with approximately 3.5 stops as compared to the AF-S 18-300 (Product 2216), which has approximately 4 stops. Both lenses can provide amazing images and each is completely compatible with the Nikon D3400 DSLR. To learn more about the differences between these lenses please contact Nikon Support.

      The main difference between the 18-200 and the 18-300 s the focal length. If you require the extra focal length for your particular shooting preferences, go with the 18-300. The aperture values are the same for the wide and telephoto end of the spectrum on both lenses.
