Great all-in-one lense.. but repaired twice
10 August 2010
Summary: I enjoy having this single lense for most photo situations.. Not a great lense for low light, but for general lighting conditions it is good. I have had the lense in the repair shop twice already which is the first time I have ever had to have any lense fixed. Glad I purchased an extended warrenty. When the lense was new, and after repair the motion is tight. With just a little use however the lense feels a bit wobbly and if tilted down, extends to full telephoto.
Summary: This is a basic lens for basic pictures. It is adequate for traveling otherwise I don't recommend it. I like to take close up pictures of flowers; this lens is not able to give me the zoom I want. Comparing to a 100-300zoom I have on my other camera, this lens does not perform. I use this lens on my Nikon 5000D, I have used it on camera's auto setting, the results has been disappointing, pictures lack sufficient contrast even though I have been using polarizing filter...
Summary: For those who don't want to read the detail below: if you're an everyday amateur shooter with some money to spend, get it. if you're serious about you're work and working with ease, put you're money into a lighter faster lens. id say this lens would be fun at the zoo or at a birthday party...for what i refer as snapshots. as far as taking photos, you're going to have to do some extra work yourself (tripod, slower shutter speeds, higher ISOs).
Excerpt: Стекло начального уровня с невысоким качеством фото. На большом зуме - сильная аберация и радиальный блёр - просто бесит - для съёмки в помещении, и тем более портретов и общаков - не годится. Для пейзажов пойдёт. В остальном по весу и габаритам похож на 18-105, цена выше ровно в 2 раза. Я б скинул 4 т.р. Не вижу смысла в VRII.
Pros: Лёгкий, универсальное фокусное расстояние
Cons: На первый взгляд - хлипковаты на нём все переключатели. Вручную непросто фокус навести. Жуткие аберации и мыло по краям пропорциональны зуму. Тёмный.
