This new standard zoom lens, which has been introduced as a kit with the Nikon D3300 entry-level DSLR sports a compact, collapsible design, Vibration Reduction and silent focusing.

The Nikon AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 ED II shows the typical characteristics of an entry-level kit lens. The build quality is rather poor, but compensates for with a rather low price. However, there's not really much to complain about its performance regarding center sharpness and vignetting.

There's no such thing as a free lunch and the Nikkor AF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED DX is no exception to the rule. The build quality is downright miserable which is probably a sufficient reason alone for some to think about the AF-S 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G DX straight from the start.

This lens is amazing, the fact that it came with my D3300 as a kit unit is even better.I have to say that I was skeptical at first, but after getting out of the auto mode with my DSLR and being fully in control of my camera, shooting in RAW mode, processing my files with the View NX, photoshop &...

Great basic lens. It doesn't have huge zoom capacity, but that's because it is relatively compact. For some reason, the camera body often tells me that the lens is not attached, even when it is attached and operational. I don't know whether that is the fault of the lens or the camera body.

I thought this was the same lens that comes with the camera. It is not. It is actually smaller. Not sure if it is better or worse than the original at this point

Got this free with my d40x and must say i was pleasantly surprised how sharp it was. I dont like zooms much so have now decided to stick with this for holidays or trips. It is sharp and light and will deliver excellent quality providing you can use it in good light or with a flash.

I have more than a few Nikon lenses and would not normally have gone with this particular one except that recently had a Nikon D7000 converted for IR use [only] the the conversion company said that this was a good lens for that purpose.

Item as described Thank you!!

Just because it is a kit lens doesn't mean it is something not to be used. In fact, for most people it is the only lens they will ever need. It is light, always comes with your camera (bundled - that's why kit lens) and takes amazing photos!
