Overall this is a noteworthy lens on account of its high-level specification and affordable pricing. It has a significant weakness in its residual chromatic aberrations, despite the use of ED glass, but its MTF performance is truly impressive.

Gary Wolstenholme takes a look at this popular budget standard zoom, which is currently offered as the kit lens with the Nikon D7000 camera.

  • +

    Useful 'walkabout' zoom range, Decent optical performer, Very good value, VR performs well, Lightweight

  • -

    AF noticeably slower at telephoto end of the zoom, CA at 105mm and apertures below f/11

I got mine as the kit lens with my D7000. All around I am very happy with the quality and sharpness of this lens. It covers a great range picture possibilities.

In order to do my part in the economic recovery I recently bought a new Nikon D300, a SB-900 flash and wanted to get a good all around lens to keep on it most of the time. My criteria were it had to have wide angle, a decent telephoto range and have VR (VR = Vibration Reduction) - Nikon's...

This overall versatile zoom lens really provides shooting flexibility in a relatively light weight and compact zoom lens. Only drawback would be the loss of low light capabilities due to the maximum F/stop range. This can easy be over come with a professional grade flash unit.

    Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus

    Poor in Low Light

I BOUGHT THIS LENS USED BUT WITH THE HIGHEST RATING. IT CAME TO ME LOOKING BRAND NEW. THE RANGE OF THIS LENS MAKES IT A GREAT ALL PURPOSE LENS. IT IS ON MY CAMERA AS THE PRIMARY LENS. I TAKE A LOT OF WIDE ANGLE LANDSCAPES AND IT SERVES THIS PURPOSE WELL BUT IT IS NICE TO PROMPTLY GO TO TELEPHOTO.

After 40 years of professional photography and using Nikon cameras in or shop, I decided to switch brands from "the other guys" to Nikon and purchased a D90, which serves me fairly well in a variety of situations, including artifact photography for a museum. I use a Speedlight SB-700 with it.

I most recently shot a wedding with this lens on my Nikon d5100, along with a SB-700 Speedflash. The lens was easy to handle and gave me a wide focal range, which allowed me to use one lens and not fuss around with using a second camera or changing lenses.

This lens is great since it takes close ups and frames up pics nicely up to 35 feet away, but a flash is a must inside the home. I later purchased a Nikon FX 70-300 which on a DX is 105-450, and though I rarely use it, its a fun lens for taking bird and airplane pictures.

The lens is an excellent addition to any DSLR aficionados. I had a 18-55mm and wanted to get a add-on lens for extra zoom. But getting the 18-105mm seemed to be a much wiser choice - so I do not have to carry 2 lenses wherever I go.

So what if this is a kit lense? When nikon decided to make this a kit lense, I am sure they did their research. Nikon would not pick a bad lense to go with a d7000 (which was my case). Anyway...

Got this lens as a part of a D7000 kit since I couldn't buy a body only. The lens was very soft, had allot of barrel distortion and vignetting. The build quality was ok for a kit lens.

  • +

    Cheap, good zoom range, VR.

  • -

    Plastic mount, soft, vignetting, CA, barrel distortion, slow focus in low light.

I bought this for family use, mainly for this price, weight and Image Quality. Today after some month of use, I'm very happy with it, and I've extended its use to more artistic pictures, only in certain circumstances of course.

  • +

    Zoom range, price and quality

  • -

    its plastic mount. Today I can't take my nikon D90 from the lens, may be broken for that.
