Excerpt: I have owned Nikon cameras for many years. This is an excellent choice for DX format. The quality of the pictures are excellent. I got the kit lens as a traveling lens choice and backup since B&H had the promo for very little money I could add this lens it made it a no-brainer. The quality is acceptable but by no means a professional quality lens. For beginners is probably a good starting point. I'm able to use all my old lenses without any problems.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: Though I haven't mastered every feature on this camera, its absolutely an upgrade from my schools D800. The camera, put together, can feel heavy but the strong body is worth the weight. Most of the time I use the camera in its manual mode but someone who would want to use it in automatic modes would not be disappointed. I have found the built-in flash to be frustrating because the lens' length which interferes with close shots.
Pros: Easy To Use, Editing On Camera, Fast Shutter Speed, Large Clear LCD, Long battery life, Quiet
Excerpt: Great in Value and quality. Sharp images, excellent colour reproduction, quick in focus and blurr-free photos. As a new user I am really happy with performance of lens as well as camera (D7100)
Excerpt: I bought this product for traveling and realized the image quality wasn't what I expected. 18-105mm with Vibration Reduction, definitely for a beginner, but if you're like me, pursuing higher quality image, go for what's best within your budge.
Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX AF-S Nikkor review by Anaxagoras
7 June 2014
Summary: Over the decades I've owned lots of cameras and lenses - good, bad and indifferent. This is one of the better lenses I've owned and by far and away the best kit lens I've ever owned. I'm simply amazed at how good it is given that Nikon bundle it with their DX DSLRs for such a low price.
