China-made lens does not hold up

Quartzmine Photo, B&H Photo
25 December 2014
  • Excerpt: Bought this to use with a D7100 DX camera. The lens is made not in Japan but in China, a fact not disclosed prior to purchase. Optical quality acceptable. However, after only 6 months of lightr use, the mount came loose and caused a lot of lost photos before the problem was discovered.

Doesn't focus right; service terrible

  • Excerpt: I have had continual problems with this lens not focusing properly with my d5100. I sent it in for service three times to Nikon and they were unable to fix it, although they claimed it was fixed three times (it was not).

Not so good...

Adorama
19 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Received my order... tried it, returned it. The lens was so soft at large aperture that it would not autofocus accurately. Compared it a the same focal length and aperture (set aperture priority) to the AF-S 18mm - 55mm f/3.5 - 5.6GII kit lens. The kit lens was always better.
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Poor in Low Light

Reconditioned is a no... buy new

Farseer , Nikon
14 April 2011
  • Summary: wonderful lens that everyone should own. However if you are going to get this lens, purchase it new. I purchased mine Reconditioned. Regrettably after the warranty period has expired the lens is having focusing problems. Continual hunting and searching, and unable to maintain focus.

Tend to front focus

Vasya, B&H Photo
12 March 2010
  • Excerpt: This is a second lens I got from B@H. The first one was quite bad, it front-focused. Very often focus was much worse than 18-55 lens kit focus. Now I am sending second sample back to B@H since this 35mm lens does focus in the same manner.
