Great range, annoying issues

Summary: I purchased this lens by mail order based on specifications and Nikon reputation without trying it. I had hoped to replace my 18-55mm lens as an everyday walk around lens. In general it works very well but I have experienced two issues that always make me think twice before using it. The first issue I encountered was very noticeable distortion in some images.
Summary: If you are looking for lenses bigger than 18-55 so this is the best option IMHO. It reaches most ranges and if you are not a Pro but want a lens that can hold on a family travel, vacations without having to bring another big lens, this is the one. So far so good, no regrets!
Summary: For DX you have a range of choices for zoom lenses like 1. 18-55mm 2. 18-105mm 3. 18-140mm 4. 18-200mm 5. 18-300mm 6. 55-200mm 7. 55-300mm 8. 70-300mm Whats makes a DSLR system awesome is the large number of choices for camera bodies and lenses (flashes also..!!).. this puts some onus on the buyer to understand their needs with resonable effectiveness.
Summary: This lens is slightly bigger than most standard kit lenses, but it is very well loaded. The 18mm focal length surprises me because of how wide angle the shot can be which is a huge plus. The vibration reduction (VR) works very well and has improved my photos when I need to zoom in without a tripod. I have taken the same photo with VR on and VR off, and it makes a huge difference. I bought this lens with the Nikon D5300 and I am pleased with the capabilities of this lens.
Summary: I love this lens. Replaced the included 18-55mm lens. This lens heavier and feels better constructed. Works flawlessly with silent motor drive. Auto focus fast and accurate. Optics clearly step above standard kit lens. These Nikon lenses all look similar but can vary significantly in their quality. You get what you pay for. I found this to be higher quality than usual at an ideal price point. I use this with my 70-300mm which covers 95% 0f my needs.
Summary: The image taken with this camera is absolutely awesome. However, found some tiny spots in the image due to the dust in the sensor. Exchanged a new one with no hassle, though a little dissapointment with this defective item from Nikon.
Summary: Buy it if you have the money. I mean this lens will blow your mind if u know what u are doing with it, crazy clarity, amazing bokehs, sharp focus and very good low light photos! You can't go wrong with this lens, if you are ready to take the plunge put the money in and buy this lens instead of getting a kit lens for your new camera! Awesome pics all over!
Summary: In goes this one! Great range and pics using my D5200. As expected, lens body is wider than the 18-55mm but length when stowed is about the same. So it fits into my EveCase camera bag. Not planning on buying any more lenses, unless I change my mind in the future for a serious telephoto lens.
