and pin-cushion and barrel distortion not present in good fixed focal-length lenses is a standard for zoom lenses ...

Summary: It's a consumer grade "kit" lens which Nikon designed to be included with new cameras, and yes .... it is a low-end Nikkor. Still, many folks will put down a lens because it is not a flagship model, just as they will rate a mega-buck lens higher because it costs more.
Summary: This particular lens, simply put, is not for the digital generation. It was designed for film cameras, and old tyros like myself that still shoot film. I wouldn't recommend it for digital cameras. Cheap these days and versatile too. Hope this helps.
Summary: This is quite a good lens, especially for the price on here. You'd be hard pressed to find better bang for your buck. This will allow you to take great photos in many different situations. Quite versatile. You can't really go wrong with this little beauty.
Summary: This was the only lens I could find online that was inexpensive. The lens does it's job. Even though it is used it looks brand new. No scratches or dents. Nikon creates some of the best lenses out there.
Summary: The used lense arrived in some what broken state. Zoom ring was slipping & had to grab it really tight to zoom as it seems to be stuck. I am not happy with the purchase bexause i expected it to be in good working condition. Will not buy from that particular seller again.
Summary: This is in my opinion, one of the best walk around lenses made by anyone. I have used this lens for outdoor shooting, wedding receptions, lanscapes, etc., etc. Needless to say, I have never been disappointed with any of its results.
