Summary: I understand the import version of the product but when I opened the box a 90 day re manufactured warranty card was there. No where in product description did it state that this was a return. on the outside of box down by bar codes is a sticker that says new. So I'm confused. I'm sure the lens will serve me well but am disturbed at the way I was not informed as to exactly what the product is as far as new or not.
Summary: While the lens works well, and is one hundred dollars cheaper than comparable lenses, it's not the lens they describe. It's actually an ED II version without VR. I probably would have still purchased, but deceptive marketing never sits well.
Summary: This is a generic version of the lens that came with my camera. I was trying to replace it due to it getting damaged. I did not realize that I needed to look for VR in the description or part number. By the time I received the lens, I needed it for the holidays and therefore, could not send it back and order a different one. If you are trying to replace the lens that came with your Nikon D3100 this is NOT it.
Summary: This is a nice addition to an old Nikon. My concern is with the threads on the front - I don't know if the threading ring is plastic or not, but I have trouble threading on a couple of my filters - you have to be careful or it won't thread on or sticks. It could be the threads on the filter however. This filter goes on one camera with a 52 mm thread just fine, but balks when I try the 18-55mm Nikkor lens.
Summary: Replaces similar lens that was damaged after dropped camera. Apparently this is a frequent problem, dropping camera and this lens breaks. Having occasional problems with lens...camera thinks there's no lens or camera won't take a picture. Turning off camera or detaching then re-attaching lens seems to work.
Summary: So, this is the 3rd version of this lens I have owned. The first one came with the camera, and since then I have purchased two from Amazon. This is a great beginner lens. Does what it is supposed to do and produces nice images. The biggest problem I have with this lens is its construction. The reason I have bought 3. Now, I know I prob. should just pick a different lens, but this one is soooo compact and light!
Summary: I have been a NIkon user for more than twenty years. In 1985, my boyfriend, who is now my husband, purchased me my first SLR camera, it was the Nikon N2000 with a standard 50mm lens. I put that camera through hell and high water yet,it was faithful in deliverance and durability. Since then, I have been the owner of several Nikon outfits. All have proven to be dependable and durable.
Cons: The Nikon durability is lacking in this product.
Summary: I got this lens with the D50 kit, and I'm really impressed so far. When used properly it can deliver great results. However there are things you can't do with it...Forget about manual focusing ( the tiny little plastic focus ring feels loose and cheap) but the AF works nicely if there is enough light. That's another thing..it's a slow lens, so it's not suited for low light photography...even long apertures deliver dissapointing results.
Pros: Small, light, ED glass, silent AF, affordable
Cons: cheap plastic build, tiny plasic MF ring (not really worth using), slow, some distortion.
Excerpt: Совершенно ничего не ждал от стекла идущего в комплекте с камерой. Всем понятно что такое КИТовое стекло.
Pros: Достоинств у данного объектива нет. (в комментарии подробнее)
Cons: Форма объектива - просто ужасна. Я понимаю цена на оптику, про это я даже говорить не буду тут все понятно, но он и внешне просто ужасен. Эта форма когда задник у объектива шире переднего стекла - просто ужасна, хотя и исправляется покупкой бленды так хоть в обратном положении вид не срамной. (в комментарии подробнее)
Excerpt: Объектив был в комплекте с d7000, когда то давно покупался, на днях понадобились пара болтов с байонета, пришел в ужас разбирая его, ранее перебирал полностью объектив Tokina - вот чистый японец, а в этом резьба у болтов сразу полетела, болтики такое ощущение, что из алюминия сделаны, резьба на шляпках сорвалась мгновенно, даже не ожидал, ну и в принципе оптическая система собрана ужасно, так линзы сразу скажу не фиксируют!
Pros: Хорошее разрешение по центру и краям практически на всех фокусных, устоичив к контр свету, точный АФ, VR
Cons: Китайская сборка, дисторсия и виньетирование на 18, кома на всех ФР, медленный АФ
