THE lens to have! It will never come off your camera! It does it all!!
2 weeks ago
Summary: I love this lens!! It replaces the 18-55 and 55-200 No more changing lenses! I have had this on my camera from day one, and just replaced one with this same lens!! You have no idea how much you are saving youself until you try this lens. You carry 1/2 the gear and you dont risk changing lenses outside where you can get gunk in your camera when the change happens. I have used this lens for 5 years and wouldn't be without it!
Excerpt: I use the lens for landscapes, wildlife and family. It's easy to use and works great. It's a bit heavy, but if I carry it with the strap on my shoulder rather than around my neck I don't notice the weight.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization
Excerpt: Very pleased with this lens. I bought it before a once-in-a-lifetime trip, and used it exclusively. It allowed me to get the shots I wanted while quickly shifting from sunny landscapes to shady castle ruins to cathedral interiors to close-up candids. Versatile and fun to use.
Best value avail for an all purpose walk-around lens on a Nikon DX AF-S
17 September 2014
Summary: For a relatively inexpensive 'walk-around' lens for your Nikon DX format camera, it's hard to beat the value of the Nikon 18-200 VR Model 2159. The optics and the build quality are better than the off-brands. You can spend an extra $100 to $200 on the VR II Model 2192 (which allows you to 'lock' the lens at 18mm to prevent 'lens creep', but you'll get the same quality imaging as the older 2159.
