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.

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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

foucus

  • 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.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, High ISO Performance, Quiet
