Summary: I bought this lens primarily for my daughters soccer games. I need the 300 to get across the field and 18 for when the girls run up to me at the sidelines. In theory, it sounds like a great idea; however the quality isn't good for sports.
Summary: Sold the old version to buy the 3.5-6.3 version from UK distributor. First time out lens was OK and had good results. On second use in studio had major problems. With VR ON the lens would not focus properly, with VR OFF the lens focussed OK.
Summary: almost $1000 for this. almost every shot i take with it has numerous spots that i have to edit out. cleaning the camera's image sensor does not help. guessing it's dust inside lens from manufacturing process (or when they put it together). my particular lens was made in thailand rather than japan.
Summary: I ordered the new Nikon D3200 and this lens kit. I did not have great results. I sent both back. I could not get a sharp picture. The photos also looked dusty, and noisy, and some were just completely out of focus. There also were red and blue ghosts along the edges of objects in the pictures.
Summary: No cubrió para nada mis expectativas que tenía al momento de cambiarlo con respecto al objetivo anterior (Tamron 18-270 mm). Me convencí que los lentes todo terreno son una solución de compromiso. Probado en: nikon d7100
Summary: Ich wollte ein Allroundobjektiv für meinen nächsten Urlaub, daher kam mir dieses Objektiv ganz gelegen, da ich gerne nur ein Objektiv mitnehmen möchte. Die ersten Tests mit dem Objektiv verliefen jedoch mehr als durchwachsen.
