  • Summary: A useful prosumer lense that does what it says is should do.
  • Pros: The 18-70mm range is usually nice for wandering around. It's a light lense so you won't have a sore neck/ arm at the end of the day. Quick autofocus. Well placed controls on the lense.
  • Cons: Noticeable distortion at the wide and tele ends, but easily correctable in PS. It is no the most solid lense with lots of plastic, but the mount seems to be solid. My lense hood has become somewhat loose after many cycles of attaching and reversing. The zoom is not even. It shifts slightly at abo...

  • Summary: First, the price listed is for the D70s kit, not just the lens. I've only used a few lenses, so the most important part of my review is the customer service section. I go this lens about 6 months ago. I have been very impressed with the sharpness and color rendition of the images I get with it.
  • Pros: It's a bargain. Images are very sharp. It's light. I love the AF-S focus ring, which allows fine tuning of the focus with out turning AF off.
  • Cons: It's plastic. Image distortion is obvious at the wide end of the zoom. Not very fast...., Nothing that isn't expected for a zoom in this price range.

  • Summary: For the price, this is an excellent lens with really unbeatable value. However, it is important to conceive of this lens as a "prosumer" lens, and one should not expect the optical quality to approach that of the 17-55 mm f/2.8 or any of the other pro Nikon lens.
  • Pros: Useful 18-70mm range. Unbelievable value! (Come on! Only 300 bucks! Just give up Starbucks for 3 months a get the lense. Well worth it!). Reasonable build quality. Very good optics.
  • Cons: Some distoration at the low end. Some vignetting with a Moose filter.

  • Summary: This isn't a bad standard zoom at all! It works best in the middle and long focal ranges, there's almost nothing to complain about here.

Un excellent objectif standard

  • Summary: La plupart des réflexes Nikon de base sont livrés avec soit un 18-55, soit un 18-105. Ces deux objectifs ont leurs qualités et leurs défauts, sur lesquels je ne m'attarderai pas ici. Le 18-70mm, malgré son âge, peut être un bon remplaçant pour ces deux objectifs standards.
