Not new lens

Qi Xin da, Amazon
13 February 2014
  • Summary: the seller says the lens is new,but it is not. I am not sure the lens they send to me is used or refurbished, but 100% not the new one. Because the lens cap has many scratches.

Colapsed lens

Amelia, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: Unfortunately, I can not even rate this purchase, the lens never worked well. I have tried to solve it with my local Nikon Technical support but the problem seems to be serious. They suggested a change of the AF sensor and control circuit, because they are colapsed, but after testing it seems to be...

The bayonet mount broke on this lens and Nikon did not honor the warranty.

Thomas M. Smith, Amazon
29 December 2013
  • Summary: The bayonet mount Nikon uses on their lenses seems to have changed from a metal piece to a flimsy plastic one. The plastic one cost less than $10.00 to replace, which is most likely why Nikon now uses it - however it breaks easily. The one on our lens broke within a year of buying this lens.

  • Excerpt: This new came with my D7000 in November, 2012. Worked ok until last week, when the lens unexpectedly fell out of the camera during a morning sunrise shoot. The lens mount is plastic, and the top prong simply broke off.

Plastic Mount is a big Problem

b1webmail , Nikon
19 October 2012
  • Summary: Had this for 18 months and took great pictures but just broke the plastic mount from a little bump. it will cost $200 + to get it fixed so not a good idea as it can easily break again. There are many reviews about this as a major issue with several of Nixon's kit lenses so buyer beware.

Disappointing

Karin, B&H Photo
22 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I did a lot of research, and bought this lens to be my "go to" lens when travelling, to avoid constantly switching between my 18-55 and 55-200 lenses. Wanted to get a true Nikkor lens to go with my Nikon D5000, figuring the quality would be high.

Plastic lens mount ruins a good lens.

UK Mediaman , Nikon
16 February 2012
  • Summary: This lens would get a good review if it were not for the lousy plastic mount. As another reviewer pointed out, this is the point of the lens under greatest stress and it is not up to th job.

  • Excerpt: the lens worked well but when I drop my camera and the lens mount was damaged Nikon would not repair it. So much for saving on the purchase.
