Zoom lens

David Bozsik, Amazon

  • Summary: I enjoy the speed-of-focus, although it is not the sharpest of lenses throughout the zoom range. Great lens for the price though.

  • Conclusion: This lens negate my reservations about Superzooms. Sharp even wide open (contrary to the AF-S 3,5-4,5/18-70mm). Good all-round-lens.
  • Pros: sharp, even at f:3,5/5,6; fast AF-S, low-priced.
  • Cons: built quality, distortion, vignetting

  • Conclusion: I bought this lens for my d300. sometimes recognize problems occur but very rarely. I think this recognize problem happens from plastic mount. I've also 50mm lens and there is no problem with my d300. I prefer this lens to the beginners.
  • Pros: cheap, performance between average and good
  • Cons: rarely recognize problems occurs becuase of plastic mount (I think)

  • Conclusion: Bought as a replacement for the 18-55 D40 kit lens. Also bought to replace the TWO 24-120 AFS VR lens I bought and returned (both soft and Nikon advising "There is not a 'softness' problem with the above lens, there can be variations in overall performance between different focal length lens,whether...

Best buy for versatile lens

Andrew Szava-kovats, Amazon
16 May 2007
  • Summary: I compared this to the Nikon 18-200 VR: 1) The 18-135 is lighter and nicely balanced in handling, when mounted on the light bodies (like D-40). The 18-200 VR is much too heavy for the slight added zoom range. 2) The build quality is better than the 18-200.

Well Made Multipurpose Lens

Sputnik 1959, Amazon
16 May 2007
  • Summary: I've had this lens for a few weeks now and can recommend it as a good multipurpose lens at a good price point for use on a Nikon DSLR camera. It appears to produce images that are better then the manual zooms I was used to from film cameras of a few years ago.

Proof: you can't please all the people all the time.

  • Summary: Quit your beefin'...this is a fine lens! I use this lens exclusively and just cannot understand the naysayers to its quality, speed and pincushion problems. Wierd that I have one of the few good ones? It balances and handles great on my DSLR and takes sharp, richly colored, pics day in and day out.

A solid value and nothing to scoff at

Shane O. Laake, Amazon
16 May 2007
  • Summary: Wide open this lens has some noticeable flaws, but if you force it to using a more closed aperture (say F8), many of those become less apparent. Even if you're forced to shoot wide open or you don't know better, you can correct the aberrations and vignetting in software.

Good lens for all around, amateur use

Derek J. Cashman, Amazon
16 May 2007
  • Summary: This is a good, decent lens for all-around use by amateurs. It has a nice, wide zoom range, and takes good photos. Yes, there is some distortion around the edges, but it's not evident on all photos; if you're a pro, you should be buying much higher quality optics anyways; for amateurs that don't...
