  • Excerpt: 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. On its own, it costs around £230, but most people who end up owning this lens will end up with it as part of a camera kit. In this review, we'll take a look at how it performs.

  • Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G II AF-S DX Lens evaluation, my first priority is to include results from this lens in the lens comparison tools. This page currently exists because it is required by the database and content management systems for the posting of those standard test results.

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. The SWM focusing may not be as quick and quiet as premium Nikkor lenses, but it’s still quicker and quieter than most kit lenses, while the VR facilities really do allow you to effectively handhold shots at much slower shutter speeds...
  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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. However, there's nothing to complain about its performance regarding sharpness, CAs and also vignetting.

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

27 May 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. However, there's not really much to complain about its performance regarding center sharpness, CAs and also vignetting. On the current high resolution sensors however the border and corners resolution falls a bit behind.

  • 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. Every amateur photographer who buys this lens in the set with a reflex camera won’t be forced to look for another one too soon because this device will allow him/her to get satisfying effects.
  • 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.

  • Summary: The Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55 VR mm/3.5-5.6 G is compact and lightweight. The lens does have limitations. The zoom range is somewhat limited and the lens is not fast (f/3.5-f/5,6). We've tested this lens both with a Nikon D5100 and a Nikon D3200 . The optical performance of this lens clearly benefits from the extra resolution of the 24 megapixel Nikon D3200 . The resolution is high, when mounted on a Nikon D3200 . The resolution in the center is higher than in the corners.
  • Cons: Center resolution better than in corners, Not a fast lens (f/3.5 - f/5.6), Limited zoom range, Considerable distortion at 18 mm, Sensitive to backlight, High chromatic aberration at 18 mm
