Upgrade!

Dahlia, B&H Photo
27 July 2014
  • 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
  • Cons: Noisy At High ISO, Poor In Low Light

A Fine Walking-around Lens

Tom Williams, Adorama
8 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this lens refurbished -- which means that Nikon, at a factory, corrected anything that was less than brand-new in quality. It is the default lens for my camera now. <br /><br />Presuming 35mm focal length to be &quot;normal&quot; for an APS-C sensor size, this lens's 18-105 mm zoom range goes from &quot;twice as small&quot; to &quot;three times as big,&quot; which covers most pictures I want to take, especially outside where there is more light.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Good value for the price, Nice Focal Length Range
  • Cons: Heavy, Poor in Low Light

It's a good workhorse lens

PM Photography, Cameta
26 November 2013
  • Excerpt: It's a good walkaround lens. Don't confuse this with a prime lens for a pro gig (imo). Well I suppose you could, but I'm no pro. It is a kit lens, and it does to the job. But the bokeh isn't that spectacular like a 50mm 1.4 would have. I do love this lens because if you're doing a walkaround and need a good quality, semi-durable (don't drop it my first one shattered), medium focusing lens, this one is for you.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
  • Cons: Weak Casing

Seems perfect walk-around lens

CAS PHOTOG, Adorama
13 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I just got this last week and so far so good. The lens looked like it was brand new out of the box. I have had no issue(s) so far. Painless ordering process. I have an older camera, the D60 and the kit lens as well as the 55-200 non-VR lens. I have wanted something to fill the in-between niche that I could leave on the camera the majority of the time. This appears to fit the bill nicely.
