Great Lens

  • Excerpt: This is a great lens to use in low light and for an all around purpose lens. However it does tend to occasionally vingette but that can easily be fixed in the camera by changing certain settings or fixed on your computer.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction

Good lens

  • Summary: I got this lens like a walk around lens cause of it size and range. It is light also. Love the macro option. Wide aperture is good but you have to learn how to work with it wide open. It is very soft while wide open so try it out and learn how to avoid the soft spot.

Flexible all around zoom

  • Summary: Wow, the pictures are wonderful. I bought this for my son. He purchased a Nikon 610 as his wife had identical twin boys. He's been taking lots and lots of pictures with this lens over the past month, and the photos are ever so clear and beautiful. Most of his photos are shot indoors, so in order to have a bit more control over depth of field, after about a month of using this zoom he purchased a 50 mm 1.4.

Rotating front barrel is BAD on Flower Lenshood and Polarizing Filter

  • Summary: Finish and workmanship is as expected from Nikon. Solidly built. Optics (glass, not plastic) is very good and mechanical operation is smooth. This lens is rugged and built for the pros for use on Nikon pro or semi-pro DSLR body, hence, the AF would not function on Nikon DSLR not equipped with drive motor (i.e. D3000 series, D5000 series -- check you camera body for the lens drive blade). This is NOT a negative trait.

  • Summary: Great condition lens. The cap was hard to get off and the packaging was just barely enough to arrive pretty beaten up but with the lens in good shape. But, it arrived on time and as described.

Good Lens

  • Excerpt: I use the lens with my Nikon D800. This is the lens that is usually on the camera when I have no specific agenda to do. It's light and quick, cheap and sharp. The lens is great for outdoor and portrait shots. The manual and automatic controls both work like a peach. This is not the best lens for capturing macro shots.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Great all around lens.

  • Summary: Been using this lens for many years. All the way back to my N70 film camera. Fast lens with decent zoom. Wish it would zoom a bit more than the 85mm. I bought this over the 24-120mm since it was faster and back in the film days you needed the extra speed for lower light conditions. I wouldn't say that this is an extremely sharp lens but it's decent enough. If you're doing portraits do you really need to see every single pore on someones face?
