Great camera, some downfalls in video

  • Excerpt: This camera is incredible for photography. However of you are waiting for a high quality video camera there are some setbacks. First you'll need to immediately update your firmware in order for the aperature control to work in video. There also hasn't been an update for manual metering in video mode. Be aware of these small but important qualities before purchasing.

I would go for higher level lens

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: My issue with this lens is that it reflects the shortcuts in construction to make it a less expensive kit lens. No issues with the glass itself, the VR, focusing all good, and a handy zoom range. The lens mount is plastic, not metal like most other quality Nikon lenses. If you hurriedly pick up your gear up by the lens (hey we all do it once in awhile) instead of the body your lens may just break off like mine did.

Would be a winner if not for the mount...

Amazon

  • Summary: I got this lens as part of a kit with my D90. In all respects, it's several steps up from the 18-55, including better build quality, better optics, and a real deal AFS motor. The deal breaker for me was the plastic lens mount, I just dont trust them. If this lens had a metal mount, I would have kept it.

  • Excerpt: Unfortunately I bought the lens with a D500 for image quality. If used indoors (studio) on a tripod the lens always is sharp on the right hand side and out of focus on the left. The upper left is a joke. I've been trying this for over a year and I'll probably need to get a fixed focus lens.

OK, versatile, consumer grade lens for some shots, but lacking clarity

~D "wiredrabbit", Amazon

  • Summary: I spent a few days with this lens on my D7000. The lens was recommended by a serious photographer who had the same lens on the same camera. For the shot I wanted, I needed a wide field of view and this offered a good range that would be useful indoors with a large subject, in this case the inside of a basilica with a great deal of artificial lighting in various colours designed to enhance large intricate carvings, woodwork and paintings.

foucus

tresejane, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I am happy with my new Nikon, but would have been happier if the focus would be more precise. I have used Sony's for years, and love the speed of fps that Sony offers, but I was looking for a more professional studio camera. Nikon seemed to be the one, but I am still not happy with the focusing. It is not as sharp as the Sony.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, High ISO Performance, Quiet
