One lens quiver

Sgt_Lobo, Adorama

  • Excerpt: Covers just about every focal length you could possibly need in 99.9% of any given situation. Problem is pictures are distorted at both ends of the spectrum. Nikon usually updates their firmware to correct this distortion in-camera, but it hasn't happened yet. Also having problems finding correction profiles for lightroom or CS6. On the plus side the images are super sharp for a lens with such a huge focal range.
  • Pros: Great Focal Range, Sharp, Weight
  • Cons: No Correction Profile

All in one!

  • Summary: Great lens with a full range! My wife loves taking pics with this and we don't need to carry 3-4 lens at the same time. I wish it supported a lower f stop range as well. But great lens overall!!

Great all-In-One lens

Tom, B&H Photo
4 August 2014
  • Excerpt: So far I have taken great landscapes, a few long distance bird shots and multiple portraits in our church studio. All have been extremely sharp and require very little color adjustment. The lens is light to carry and not much heavier than the 18-200mm it replaces. The VRII is wonderful and I have not had focus issues. The one negative I have is Nikon labeling this an 18-300mm lens. At 18mm it is spot on with other lenses in my possession.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

  • Summary: It is a versitile lens. It is not as sharp at 18 mm as my 18-105 lense. Above 35 mm it is preforming bether than 18-105mm lense.

Excellent all around lens

Don, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Bought this lens for my wife to use on her Nikon D7000 when we travel. Gives her a very wide zoom range, in a light lens, eliminating the need to carry other lens and make frequent changes. The D7000's high ISO capability somewhat offsets the slower lens speed (f6.3) compared to Nikon's other 18-300 lens (which is faster but heavier). Package doesn't include a lens hood, which is a hassle, as it needs to be ordered separately.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Versatile

NewNikon lens

SAK632, B&H Photo
11 June 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a new lens for Nikon, upon first look the smaller size, lighter weight sounds good. When opening the box I found that there was no lens hood, no lens bag and the twist cap on the rear has been replaced with a cheap push on cap. The lighter weight is the best reason for getting this lens, I noticed the auto focus was not as quick as the older 18-300, at 300mm it is f6.3 this is a small issue.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: No bag, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus
