Nice bang for the buck

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens because I needed one that could reach out to get pics of a graduation. While it's not as fancy as my 17-55mm, it does have VR and seemed to take some nice shots, despite me being handheld and not on a tripod.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Lens Extends As You Zoom

  • Excerpt: Excellent lens for the everyday picture taker. If you need just a little more zoom that your standard lens with Auto focus, this is the product.

  • Excerpt: Lightweight, sharp and a good value. Not f/2.8, but in good light it matches up well with the big guns.

Excellent carry around lens

  • Excerpt: This is a great lens as far as kit lenses go. I really struggled with either buying this or going for a used in great condition on a Nikon 80-200 2.8 lens. I wanted to try out Nikon VR lenses and as far as that goes it's O.K. I probably just need to cut back on the coffee and pay attention better when I use it. When price is your primary concern, this lens it a good way to go. Good, not great.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Price
  • Cons: Weak Casing

Light, compact and very usable for a very reasonable price.

  • Excerpt: I'll preface this review by detailing what this lens isn't: - It obviously isn't on par with Nikon's top-of-the-line lenses in terms of build quality and clarity, and obviously shouldn't be reviewed as such. - It isn't the best option when you need ultra-fast focusing speeds for action shots. - It isn't terribly responsive in low lighting. - It isn't going to impress a photographer who expects miracles from it.
