Cheap build quality.

  • Summary: I have had to repair this lens 3 times and it still does not autofocus correctly. I have used it on a Nikon D80 and D5100. Each repair requires 2 to 3 weeks because parts seem to always be on back order from Nikon. My older Nikon lenses lasted years without any problems.

Defective lens on Parts Hold

  • Summary: I purchased this lens with a D-80 on December 6, 2006. In February 2007 the auto focis started to intermittently fail. By March 24, 2007 the autofocus totally failed. I sent the lens to Nikon in Melville, NY on March 28 and believed their 7-10 day service turnaround. It is now May 3, 2007 and the lens is on a "parts hold" with no return date in sight. The customer service persons say the same thing..."There's a Parts Hold on the lens.

  • Summary: Save your money and use it on other more effective focal length and lens combinations.
  • Pros: fast focus, decent focal range.
  • Cons: A soft lens that's not up to traditional Nikon design standards.

Pincushioned images

B. Corners, Amazon
8 November 2006
  • Summary: Here's what Nikon won't tell you (unless you push the customer service agents): This lens distorts the imagery at every focal length--not just the extreme telephoto range. Take a photo of something squarely framed, or, say, the siding on a house, and you will see that the image is pulled towards the center; the top, bottom, and sides bow inwards. This is true for the lens I bought and for ALL others opened in the store.
