Front element wobble causes image shift

Joseph, B&H Photo
28 October 2013
  • 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. The shift is very noticeable in the viewfinder if you are locked down on a tripod and try to manually focus.

Just as I expected - Accurately priced

  • 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.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Lightweight

Good lens

  • 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. The shots form the plane will be done with a D90 system from now on.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight

Not bad for the price

hobbiest69, Nikon

  • Summary: This is the kit lens that came with my D60. I was more than happy with it in the first couple of years until I bought the AF-S DX Nikkor 35 mm f/1.8 lens. Then I knew what I was missing in terms of sharpness and the ability to take pictures in low light. Now I don't consider it a good lens at all, but it is a great choice for those who are on a tight budget and those who are picking up photography as a new hobby.

Not The Best Quality, Just OK.

Propicturetaker, Adorama
7 May 2013
  • Excerpt: This lens is so lightweight that it feels cheap. The shifting focal length of the lens makes it a waste for any working professional. It's best use is as a backup only. I don't recommend this type of lens to anybody.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light

Okay kit lens. Too many flares.

Tommy G, Adorama
10 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Tested this lens inside and out. Found that it lacks the light gathering needed for non flash indoor photos. I was constantly at iso 2000 and up which is too grainy for my taste. Outdoors it showed too many lens flares even with a UV filter. With good lighting, the lens is sharp and has nice bokeh, but in my case good lighting is the exception. I am returning it for a nikkor 35mm f/1.8 instead.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Lens Flare, Poor in Low Light

Nice lens, but...

Fireman Steve, B&H Photo
21 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I've worked with two of these lenses (one personal, one at work). Both have performed well, and I consider them to be good lenses for the price. However, one of them recently needed replacement. During normal use, the zoom ring locked up, and the aperature locked down. Upon closer inspection, the rear element of the lens had become displaced within the body of the lens.
