  • Conclusion: The Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II is one of the better kit lenses out there, but it's best acquired when bundled with a camera at a lower cost.
  • Pros: Quite sharp. Optical stabilization. Compact. Inexpensive.
  • Cons: Loads of distortion at 18mm. Narrow aperture. Hood not included. Plastic lens mount.

Nikkor DX kit lens group test: 18-55mm vs 18-70mm vs 18-135mm vs 18-200mm VR

Camera Labs
1 April 2007
  • Summary: The DX 18-55mm II is the most basic Nikkor kit zoom for Nikon DSLRs. It has the shortest optical zoom of the four models tested and the lowest build quality. It also has a rotating front section which can prove annoying for users of polarising filters and doesn’t come with a lens hood.
  • Pros: Slightly longer zoom range than basic kit lens, Brighter f4.5 aperture at telephoto, Superior build quality to standard kit lens, Fast and quiet SWM focusing motor, More flexible range than standard kit lens, Better build quality than standard kit lens, Fast and quiet SWM focusing motor, Affordab...

Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II - Review / Test Report

11 November 2010
  • Conclusion: The lens shows pronounced distortion towards the short end of the focal range, but that's a quite typical behaviour in this class. The lens features a silent but not overly fast AF-S drive, which makes it compatible with any current Nikon DSLR.

Nikkor AF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED DX - Review / Test Report

  • Conclusion: There's no such thing as a free lunch and the Nikkor AF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED DX is no exception to the rule. The build quality is downright miserable which is probably a sufficient reason alone for some to think about the AF-S 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G DX straight from the start.
