  • Excerpt: I use well constructed camera travel gear. I purchased this lens in June 2013 and within 10 months it had dust spots inside the lens where the only removal option was for Nikon to fix it. I was on vacation in June/July and sent it in upon returning in August.

NOT a good 1 lens alternative for pros

  • Excerpt: When I was testing it on a resolution chart I was impressed. THEN I actually went out to shoot with it...YIKES! Reasonably sharp throughout the zoom range but then the VIGNETTING kicks in at the longer end (150-300mm)- forget about it!
  • Pros: Lightweight

Not as I Expected - Very Disappointed!

Greg S, B&H Photo
17 July 2013
  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens to accompany my new D600, but after shooting about 30-40 images, I was not only surprised but extremely disappointed in the results. This lens lacks sharpness at nearly the entire focal length range regardless of aperture.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Good all around lens
  • Cons: Excessive Distortion, Heavy, Images Too Soft, Lacks Sharpness

A Compromise Not Worth Taking

  • Excerpt: I hate compromising with my photos. I bought this with high hopes and after testing it, was completely unhappy with the results. I would never be able to pass the photos in my test shoot to any clients. It is just too soft.
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Poor QA/QC is major limitation

Third Eye, B&H Photo
12 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Immediately after receiving this lens, I photographed a local outdoor cultural festival at relatively close distances and low resolutions. The results were generally quite good. It was only after subsequently subjecting the lens to more rigorous testing that its true qualities came to light.

Disappointed

Yukonjohn, B&H Photo
28 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Purchased this lens locally because they had it. 300 plus shots later on DX and FX bodies the results are not what I expected. VERY soft focus in every situation. Aperture, AE mode, sensor selection all yield soft results. Very poor for nature photography.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Slow Focus

Poor customer service by Focus

Linda Ryder, Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered this lens kit from Focus. After the 30 day window, I realized that the lens hood would fall off VERY easily. After every single picture, I started tightening the hood, but it fell off frequently. I asked them to replace this, BUT OH NO. It was outside the 30 days. They said contact Nikon.

  • Summary: a good all round lens, for some, but on my D200 I have been very disappointed
  • Pros: the fact it's a Nikon and will resale OK
  • Cons: nothing is sharp, at wide angle really bad edge colour distortion, and it's slow, I had strange unnatural greens too, thought it was the camera until I tested another lens
