Horrid price, great lens

Summary: I've been using this lens on and off for about 4 months now I believe. It's an amazing lens, takes bold pictures and does a great job at reducing noise. One reason I can't reccomend this lens is it's not a 250$ noticeable difference. You're better off getting yourself a 18-140 VR for the same price.
but disappointed that they did not include the 52mm lens protection ...

Summary: Today I received my Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 ED II AF-S DX Nikkor Camera in the original box with the 5 year warranty Nikon gives, but disappointed that they did not include the 52mm lens protection that the box said it came with and original black cover for the bottom, no hood or cover.
The Nikon 18-55mm lens is adequate but not outstanding

Summary: The advantage of this lens is that it is very light-weight and portable. I got the Nikon 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S DX NIKKOR Zoom Lens with my original purchase of the Nikon D5300 but found it to be heavy and a bit unwieldy at times, though it takes wonderful pictures.
Summary: It's the compact version of the original kit lens that came with my D7100. It was cheap, and it works in a pinch. I've since purchased a D800, and bought a 24-70mm f/2.8 which I use most of the time now. The difference in quality is huge (but so is the price).
Excerpt: Undoubtedly this lens can take some sharp images, but the machining tolerances are disappointing. When extended for near focus, the front element wobbles up and down more than two millimeters. This can't be good for the image quality when the optical axis tips and tilts that much.
Excerpt: This product is just as I expected. I broke my last one and therefore I needed a new one. It is durable... Or at least as durable as a camera lens can get. Its just as it is described and accurately priced.
Excerpt: but not very durable. I do photogrqphy from small aircraft and the last time I did the lens and camera worked great. Several days later the lens was dead, no moror function at all. I am replacing with the same lens in the VR model. I hope it works better.
