Low Resolution Dud

Summary: You get what you pay for and et I am still shocked that this lens has such a high rating - I feel like the rating duped me into buying a cheap lens. If you're looking for a cheap lens that can zoom in/out easily but the images themselves are low res and you don't have any intention of printing them larger than 3x5 then this is the lens for you. For example, I already have a 55mm lens. The images I've taken with that lens end up 14-20,000 KB.
Summary: It's been a while now, but I'm pretty sure I got this lens in a kit with the Nikon D40. Now between the Canon and Nikon cameras, I've always thought the Nikon held up well, but I'm starting to re-evaluate. Granted, we've used this lens fairly constantly for years, but my parents still have SLR cameras with working lenses from 10 and 20 years ago. On a recent trip, this lens was working great and then suddenly broke completely.
Summary: I have a Nikon D3000. I dropped my camera and broke my orginal lens that came with the camera. So I had to replace it. I bought this one..figured decent price. Well it worked great but then all of a sudden stopped working. It wouldn't focus anymore. I noticed too that it was smaller in size than my original lens. not sure if that means anything.
Summary: Not super good, but not bad at all. It's a perfect first lens in price and performance. Don't get me wrong i like the lens (and so does the person i bought it for) hence the 5 stars. Just don't get this and expect to be Ansel Adams. Comes in original, new box. Shipped well, very secure and safe. No dust or anything, fit perfectly, autofocus is quick. Pretty great deal!
Summary: This is a great lens. But it broke on the inside and wouldn't zoom anymore. I sent it to Nikon to be repaired, but apparently they won't touch it since it wasn't bought directly from Nikon. It's considered a "Gray Market" item.
Excerpt: Che dire di quest'ottica... Inizaimo da ciò che questo obiettivo può regalarci in termini qualitativi : 18-55, uno zoom che va dal grandangolo alla normale lunghezza focale per ritratti. La luminosità è nella norma, non ci sono particolari segnalazioni a riguardo. Riguardo la qualità, posso dire che non è un granchè e consiglio vivamente di partire direttamente con il 18-70 che è assolutamente un altro mondo! QUest'ottica non è in grado di soddisfare ...
Pros: Compatto, leggero, economico
Cons: Scarsa qualità ottica, materiali piuttosto scadenti
