Excerpt: I've been using this lens for HS sports photos for the booster website. I've had no issues with the lens and its taking great shots. Its doing exactly what I need it to do. I've many compliments on the photos so far.
Summary: I wanted a lens to replace my kit lens (18-55) and the zoom lens (55-200) I had purchased with my D5000 . On our trip to Hawaii, the 55-200 didn't have quite enough reach. I wished I would have had this lens. Not only will it replace 2 lenses, but also it takes awesome pictures!!! I would use a tripod when shooting at the longest focal length. I am amazed that this lens is so short and can get so close!
Excerpt: I've been using the Nikon 18-200 for years and decided to buy the older version of the 18-300 as I was told the glass was better and also the lens because of the slightly longer barrel and oh what a joy to use since snapping the very first shot with it! Tack sharp at both ends .. only positive things to say about it. You will love using it and it's not all that heavy compared to a 150-500 or 150-600 or f/2 80-200 lens.
Pros: Convenience In One Lens, Great stability, My New Walk Around Lens, Tack sharp
Excerpt: I wanted to upgrade my kit lens (18-55 & 55-200 combo) when I was up at the Griffin Observatory trying to photograph the landscape and the birds flying around it and having to change my lenses back and forth in a crowd was not fun at all. I knew I was not going to FX in the future (sold $0 worth of pictures so far) so I stayed with the DX line. Since I already own a 10-24 with the 77mm thread, it made sense to me to stick with that size filter.
Pros: animals, Cityscape, Kids, landscape, Zoom Range
Summary: I am a beginner photographer and I must say I am glad I saved up the extra to purchase this lens, If you are looking for an all in one take anywhere lens this is it. Nice and light with lots of zoom and still great quality. I have this one my D7100 and it takes great photo's. If you are like me and currently surfing the web for hours on end looking for information on what lens to buy to get into a higher level of photography I will let you in on my 2 days worth of...
Summary: Wow, this is one awesome lens. I replaced two other lenses covering the same focal distances and can't see that I've given anything up except extra weight in the camera bag. I like that this current incarnation has a locking switch to protect the zoom mechanism when the camera is in the bag.
Summary: I traded in the prior 18-300 for this one. Imagine the creativity that comes from being able hand hold from 18 to 300 and get extremely sharp pictures at any focal length. Picture quality equals the venerable 18-200. Yet it weighs the same and barely extends further. At 300, the picture quality is outstanding (see the pictures). It also does spectacular Macro at up to 1/3 life size. This is the lens to own.
Summary: Based on reviews from Ken Rockwell's site, I purchased this is an upgrade from my previous 18-200mm Nikkor. This lens is actually smaller & lighter, and with an additional 100mm! Excellent optical quality. This is the best lens on the market.
