  • Excerpt: Nikon offers tyros an option to upgrade to Vibration Reduction technology at a very nice price ($199, street) with this digital-only (DX) kit lens. A 27-82.5mm equivalent, this 3X zoom also sports a near-silent SWM focusing motor. HANDS ON

Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 G VR

Camera Labs
1 January 2009
  • Summary: The Nikkor DX 18-55mm VR is a classy budget kit lens which puts many rival models to shame. The 3x range and f3.5-5.6 focal ratio may be unremarkable, but with both SWM focusing and VR facilities, it’s a step above most models for the money.
  • Pros: VR effectively combats camera-shake., Relatively quick and quiet SWM focusing., Compact and light., Good performance for the money.
  • Cons: Front section rotates when focusing., Basic manual focusing facilities., Doesn't come with lens hood., Previous Mark II lens better in some tests.

Nikon AF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 ED VR DX Review

What Digital Camera
5 May 2008
  • Summary: This is an improvement over the older version. Nikon’s new optics offer excellent resolution at this price and the VR system is an added bonus for a lens that’s only £10 more expensive than the older model. The VR is worth having even if it fails to live up to Nikon’s three-stop claims.
  • Pros: Resolution, zoom action, VR.
  • Cons: Wideangle chromatic aberration, plastic build.

  • Conclusion: This lens actually comes out at an unexceptional 76%, but we’re going to add a little extra for the excellent VR system, which genuinely does extend the range of shot conditions

Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR - Review / Test Report

26 July 2010
  • Conclusion: The Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55 VR is a typical kit lens in the sense that it delivers a lot of value for rather little money. It's probably not the lens of anyone's dreams, especially regarding its rather poor build quality.

  • Conclusion: You don’t need great deductive skills to find that Nikon offered us a really well-made lens. The new stabilized “kit” is really an interesting device you can get good quality shots with. It did have some faults and minor slip-ups but it is rather unavoidable in this price segment.
  • Cons: weak image quality at the frame edge when wide open,, significant vignetting at extreme ends of the focal range,, significant geometric deformations at 18 mm,, visible coma,, a lot of plastic elements including the mount and the shoddy manual focus ring,, slow autofocus.

Test: Nikon AF-S Nikkor 3.5-5.6/18-55 mm DX VR G ED (Standard-Zoom-Objektiv für Nikon-DSLR)

CHIP Online
10 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Das Nikon AF-S Nikkor 3.5-5.6/18-55 mm DX VR G ED belegt im Test, dass es für APS-C-Sensoren kaum mehr Leistung fürs Geld gibt. Zwar fehlt’s dem Standard-Zoom etwas an Schärfe und auch die Offenblende könnte etwas mehr Licht durchlassen.
  • Pros: Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, Bildstabilisator, Abbildungsqualität, Autofokus treffsicher
  • Cons: Lichtschwach, Auflösung am Bildrand

  • Summary: Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6G VR to stosunkowo dobry obiektyw. Wszystkie jego podstawowe parametry są na dobrym poziomie. Niestety zoom ten ma duże problemy z winietowaniem sięgającym 43% i niską rozdzielczość na obrzeżach kadru dla najmniejszych wartości przysłon.
