Nikon has announced a couple of new DSLR lenses, and one of them’s a record-breaker. The 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6 ED VR has the world’s highest zoom ratio of any DSLR lens, at 16.7x. The previous champion in this field was Tamron’s 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3, so it’s impressive that Nikon has managed to add 30mm of range while actually improving on the aperture at the telephoto end. That said, you’ll be paying for the privilege — the lens will launch in June for $ 999.95, which sounds like a lot to lay down for a superzoom. Still, you’ll likely be hard-pressed to find a more versatile lens for any APS-C- camera.
Also announced is the full-frame-compatible 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR, a standard zoom which should provide a useful walk-around option for…
