Not quite what I expected

  • Excerpt: The lens has a very nice zoom range and performquite well in daylight situations. Still a problem is the zoom creep, very annoying, so the lens feels just cheap. It is just non suitable for night photography. Pinpoint lights are rendered quite ugly with much lens flare.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor Night Performance

  • Excerpt: for a while this was my go to lens. I waited several months for the original to come out about 5 years ago. Besides lens creep in the original version I've compared sharpness and contrast to identical shots with my 70-200mm 2.8 nikon lens.

  • Excerpt: I love the broad range this lens covers, shooting with it offers everything you need on travel shoots and outings with the camera. It easily switched from wide angle room shots, to landscapes, and then decent close-ups of birds. The photo quality was great, the autofocus silent, nice lens....

  • Excerpt: I rate this lens poorly as a knock on the actual product and manufacturer. I've owned this lens just over a year and a half and the focusing stopped suddenly and the lens no longer would adjust back to 18mm for locking in place.

Less than what I expected

  • Excerpt: I have several "pro" Nikon lenses and bought this one for those occasions when I could not carry a lens assortment with me. I found the build quality excellent and no lens creep whatsoever. However, I found my test images too soft for my satisfaction and autofocus slow and sluggish.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Sluggish autofocus, Soft images

  • Excerpt: I feel bad offering criticism of this lens after seeing so many positive remarks. I have been using Nikons since 1981 and have had many different lenses that are great. This is the worst of the bunch. It is fair from 18 to about 100 mm, but after than it is very poor quality especially at 200mm.
