Not new lens

Qi Xin da, Amazon

  • 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.

DON'T BUY IT

  • 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.
  • Cons: Heavy, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus, Weak Plastic Lens Mount

Disappointing

Karin, B&H Photo
21 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.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy

Unreliable plastic mount, unreliable focus

L. James, Amazon
3 June 2012
  • Summary: I have several Nikon film cameras and nikon lenses. I received a Nikon D90 with the Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX VR ED Nikkor Lens as a birthday present. It has been great being able to see images instantly on screen.

EOS20, Fredmiranda
29 December 2011
  • Conclusion: Got this lens as a part of a D7000 kit since I couldn't buy a body only. The lens was very soft, had allot of barrel distortion and vignetting. The build quality was ok for a kit lens.
  • Pros: Cheap, good zoom range, VR.
  • Cons: Plastic mount, soft, vignetting, CA, barrel distortion, slow focus in low light.
