  • Conclusion: The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is a good alternative to an 18-55mm kit lens; it's sharp throughout its zoom range, and affordable.
  • Pros: Very sharp. Vibration reduction system. Sturdy build. Attractive price.
  • Cons: Competing lenses feature 18-135mm zoom range. Some distortion. Softer edges at longer focal lengths.

  • Excerpt: While I hope to create a full Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S VR 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.

Nikon's AF-S Nikkor 18-105mm G ED VR has optics that are surprisingly very good for a lens in this price range

  • Excerpt: In order to do my part in the economic recovery I recently bought a new Nikon D300, a SB-900 flash and wanted to get a good all around lens to keep on it most of the time. My criteria were it had to have wide angle, a decent telephoto range and have VR (VR = Vibration Reduction) - Nikon's nomenclature for lenses having image stabilization)   I took a good look at the well respected AF-S 18-200mm DX VR Zoom-Nikkor G IF-ED as well as the  AF-S DX Nikkor 16-85mm G ED VR.

  • Summary: In most cases, budget zooms and kit lenses aren't all that exciting in terms of specification and performance. In this case the 18-105mm surprised me at the quality achievable, especially at 18mm and at optimum apertures throughout the range.
  • Pros: Useful 'walkabout' zoom range, Decent optical performer, Very good value, VR performs well, Lightweight
  • Cons: AF noticeably slower at telephoto end of the zoom, CA at 105mm and apertures below f/11

Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED VR - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
28 February 2010
  • Conclusion: The Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED VR offers a nice package of a comfortable focal range, optical stabilization and very high resolution figures, excep for the longest focal length. On the downside there is rather pronounced distortion and CAs. The amount of vignetting is about average for this lens class.

  • Excerpt: Originally posted 2008-09-29 on Optyczne.pl In August 2006 Nikon launched a new reflex camera, marked by the D80 symbol. This premiere was accompanied by the launching of the Nikkor AF-S DX 18-135 mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, which became a universal “kit” lens for the D80 camera. Two years later, the same scenario was repeated. This time, along with the launching of the Nikon D90 we saw a new lens called Nikkor AF-S 18-105 mm f/3.5-5.6 VR DX ED.
  • Cons: a lot of plastic in the barrel and bayonet,, significant distortion,, visible vignetting at all focal lengths,, changeable work against the bright light.
