20 January 2009
  • Conclusion: Nikon recommend this lens for use as a standard on their top end cameras and with an approximate 30% improvement on performance over the 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 we can see why.

  • Cons: Disappointing control of distortion at the wide end., Price, although value for money is relative., Hood useless with on board flashes.
