Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Zoom Lens

  • Summary: We purchased this lens off the used listing. The ad stated "lens works perfect, package slightly damaged" That was a complete lie. Unless the company is Amazon direct, I won't go that route again. The motor in the lens did not function, nor did the manual focus! At least I got my money back. Really wants that lens for close ups, but will wait and get it new later.

Six months and it isn't working

Tim M. Lusk, Amazon
3 March 2013
  • Summary: We bought this as a replacement for the original lens that came with the camera, which lasted for four years. This lens didn't even last six months when a small piece inside the lens came loose and turned sideways. Doesn't matter if it does turn sideways, a lens should last longer than six months. I still have lenses for a Canon AE-1 that were purchased in the 80's that are in perfect condition. What's up with this product?

WATCH OUT....NON US MODEL

J. Clark "jeeper2007", Amazon
27 September 2011
  • Summary: I ordered the Nikon 18-55 lense for my D70 that the original lens failed after 5 years or so. Well I bought this in May and in September the auto-focus failed on this one. It wouldn't even focus manually as the focus ring was stuck. No problem...Nikon warrenty is 1 year per the website, so I send it off to Nikon and get it back 2 weeks later with a letter saying it's a Non-US lens. I called to get some clarity from them.

  • Summary: This particular Nikor lens meets several needs. It allows close focusing, is light weight and the focal length is within the range I use most often.

  • Excerpt: Пользуюсь 5 месяцев,на третьем месяце заклинило кольцо фокусировки, перейдя на MF небольшим усилием добился хруста и это кольцо стало болтаться вверх-вниз как сосиска. сделать-сделали, но радости этот объектив приносит одинаково как целый так и сломанный-т.е. никакой.
  • Pros: не жалко разбить о стену.
  • Cons: Мылит на большой диафрагме, хроматит,сплошной пластик и многое многое другое.

  • Excerpt: не рекомендую
  • Pros: встроенный мотор как следствие тихая и относительно быстрая фокусировка
  • Cons: Очень темный, от стаба толку почти нет Качество фото ужасное: при 18мм - искажения, при 55мм очень темный и как результат фото смазанные и/или искореженные высоким значением ISO Хобот вращается - т.е. не удастся пользоваться поляризационным фильтром
