Sloppy and loose optics

  • Excerpt: I can't believe how much the front of this lens droops when it's fully extended. I wonder if I got a defective lens. I've been a Nikon shooter for more than 30 years, but this lens just isn't up to usual Nikon build quality.

  • Excerpt: This lens came as a package deal with a D40x. When it worked, it worked well. However, after the warranty expired it started to give me grief. The lens is very noisy, and the autofocus stopped working all together. I took it to Nikon on Long Island to get it repaired. The Tech Rep said he gets a lot of these. So I would not buy this lens if it did not already come with my camera.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

Was great until it fell apart

  • Excerpt: This lens came in my D70 kit. The optics were surprisingly good for a kit lens, exceeded my expectations time and time again. In fact, it was one of my best lenses yet (says a lot, considering others are Japanese built straight 2.8 Nikkors) on my D70 -- until it fell apart. I am VERY careful with my equipment but apparently exceeded the usage limit for this lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Excellent optics
  • Cons: Weak Casing

weak focus

  • Summary: The focus of this lens is not always accurate. Apparently the manual focus ring on the front is very wimpy. Even on auto focus the SLIGHTEST movement, (ie. breathing on it) is enough to throw it out. I can compensate, SOMETIMES, by squeezing the aperture to its smallest setting. But that can get VERY annoying.

Optically OK but flimsy.

  • Summary: The optical quality of this lens is decent. Surprisingly good for the price actually. Unfortunately the build quality is atrocious to the point that I have a very hard time recommending it to anyone.

  • Summary: This product came as a kit lens with my D40. I used it a few times before the auto focus stopped working. Can't find my receipt to have it serviced so I guess I have purchase another.
