Nikon D3200 twin kit with Nikon 18-55mm VR II and 55-300mm VR Lenses Digital SLR Camera
The Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II DX Lens is a general-purpose zoom lens featuring a retractable barrel for a compact, lightweight design. The lens has a zoom range of 18-55mm, equivalent to 27-82.5mm with a 35mm format, which makes it useful in a wide variety of shooting conditions. This works with a retractable design that makes it easier to store and carry than standard lenses.
The 18-55mm utilizes a Silent Wave Motor for quiet, quick autofocusing and also features Vibration Reduction. This technology optically stabilizes the image to reduce camera shake and movement in order provide up to 4 additional stops of light while shooting handheld. For even better image quality, the elements of the lens feature a Super Integrated Coating that nearly eliminates ghosting and reduces flaring, maintaining a crisp image throughout the frame.
For general shooting, this lens features a minimum focusing distance of 9.8" in manual focus mode. Additionally, this lens features a 52mm filter thread for attaching your accessories.

Nikon D3200 Features
24.2 effective megapixels. Nikon-developed DX-format CMOS image sensor [NEW]
Featuring 24.2 effective megapixels, the D3200's large image sensor faithfully reproduces the texture and brightness of subjects. It is also possible to emphasize subjects by beautifully blurring the background. With the high pixel count of 24.2 megapixels, satisfactory resolution can be achieved even when trimmed images are printed.
Easier-to-use Guide Mode that shows you how to take great pictures
Guide Mode, that was highly evaluated with the D3100, has become easier to use. In Easy operation and Advanced operation modes, a description of each scene is displayed. For Advanced operation mode, options such as "Capture reds in sunsets" and "Reduce blur" are newly added.
Compact and light body with reliable holding that enables sharp pictures with minimal camera shake
A compact and lightweight body that can be carried and handled easily is employed. Secure holding is further enhanced with expanded areas of finger rests on the front and rear. Because the camera can be held stably, sharp pictures with minimized blur can be captured. The refined layout of buttons and dials ensures comfortable operation.
Image-processing engine EXPEED 3 – the same as that used by the Nikon D4 FX-format flagship camera – achieves high speed, multiple functions and high performance.
Sharp pictures can be taken with minimal blur even for dark indoor or sports scenes. Wide ISO sensitivity range at standard setting is from ISO 100 to 6400. Can be set to ISO 12800 equivalent.
Scene Recognition System enables beautiful pictures with sharp focus and appropriate brightness and color by recognizing the subject and scene conditions prior to capture.
High-speed continuous shooting at approx. 4 fps to capture decisive moments reliably.
Large and easy-to-view, high-definition, approx. 921k-dot, 7.5-cm/3-in., wide-viewing-angle LCD monitor.
The variety of Scene Modes ensures the most appropriate camera settings according to shooting situations, such as Child and Landscapes.
Scene Auto Selector selects the optimal scene mode automatically according to the shooting scene or subject.
WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter (optional) transmits taken images to smart devices wirelessly. [NEW]
Choice of body colors – black and red. High-quality compact and light styling ensures superior operability.
Variety of in-camera image-editing functions such as Selective color, Miniature effect, and Trim.
