Great lens!

  • Summary: I purchased this lens for use with a Nikon D3300 camera. I wanted a wide-ranging zoom lens to cover as much “territory” as possible without having to change (and carry) extra lenses. I read a number of online reviews before purchasing and I would encourage others to do the same. The chief competitor for this lens is the Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR (product 2196).

  • Summary: Absolutely love this lens. I originally bought this lens for my wife's camera several years ago, and it was the only lens she would use for most...
  • Pros: Takes the place of 2 to 3 lens, so you are always ready to take that shot!
  • Cons: It's not indestructible, but is any lens?

Probably never change lenses

  • Summary: I'm pretty new to the DSLR game. I find it frustrating to switch lenses after using super-zoom point and shoot cameras. I am hoping this camera will replace my 18-105 and 70-300. After using this lens for a few weeks, it am going to sell my other two lenses. I will keep my 35mm 1.8G. I have had nothing but good experiences with the new 18-300. Its versatility is given. My photos have been great. The lens does not feel any heavier than the 70-300 on my D7000.

and it works beautifully as an all-purpose lens for garden photography

  • Summary: I have the predecessor to this lens, and it works beautifully as an all-purpose lens for garden photography, but it is way too heavy to be practical for me. This is a HUGE improvement in terms of weight, and there is no discernible difference in how it works. In a book on close-up photography that I got from Amazon, I found a suggestion for turning this zoom lens into a close-up lens by adding a Canon 500D lens.

Excellent new Nikon lens

  • Excerpt: For coverage of outdoor events this lens is light and very sharp. No real downside to this lens. You need to be realistic about the f6.3 max but that is how they keep it so small. Not inexpensive but overall a very good value. I back it up with a normal prime in case I need to shoot in low light but otherwise my bag got lighter with this purchase.

Love this lens!!

GThorsen, Nikon

  • Summary: I debated back and forth about this lens. I actually bought the old 18-300 days before and ended up returning it for this one. In comparison, this one is as good and better in some cases for sharpness and clarity. Yes, low light can be an issue but it is a small one and one that can be compensated for in post processing. It's weight is doable even carrying it around for a whole day I was not fatigued by it.
