Is It A Keeper??

Suntouched, Adorama
29 April 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a handy focal length to have and if you want this focal length there are few other choices for FX. I am using this on a D610. Size and weight are great. Color and contrast is good. VR is nice to have. Focus is accurate. It is sharp enough for most applications.<br /><br />IQ can be excellent or mediocre - and there lays the problem- inconsistent output. It's like the resolution isn't quite there for the D610 although it was a kit lens for this camera.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Inconsistent output

Average Lens

SanPa, Cameta

  • Excerpt: This lens offers average to inferior clarity on an Fx camera were focal tuning is necessary, and poor clarity on a Dx camera when lens tuning is not available. Color fringing is a given with this lens. It weighs a lot when attached to a small Dx camera. For Dx, the Sigma 18-250 Macro seems to have this Nikkor beat for weight, speed, colors, and IQ; while pricing the same as like new used.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy, Poor in Low Light, Slow Focus

Mixed feelings

Siddartha Gurrawar, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this lens along with my new D610. Nikon 24-85 focuses fast and is very good when used outdoors. I have been contemplating buying this one or the more expensive 24-70 and eventually bought both. I use this one as walk around lens and the 24-70 indoors. THE PROS OF THIS LENS ARE FAST FOCUS: This lens focuses very fast. I also own a 24-70 2.8 Nikon.

  • Summary: Might work better on a DX than a FX. Disappointed with the sharpness and the autofocus The lens is made of plastic and mine did not last. internal parts break. Just okay for the money in my opinion.

Not value for money

  • Summary: I describe myself as Hobby/Enthusiast but have been Semi-Professional. For some years now I have been using a Nikon D80 which was purchased as a 'kit' with lens. Previous to that I was using Pentax 6x7 and Mamiya 645 equipment. I bought this lens to go with my new Nikon D600. 95% of my photography covers Trains, moving and stationary and railway associated subjects.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable
  • Cons: Distortion

OK for a kit lens

Mr. M. Cheung "Gadgetman", Amazon
21 December 2012
  • Summary: There's nothing really wrong with this lens. It's a solid performer across the range and the VR helps a lot if you need to shoot at slower shutter speeds. Focussing is silent but a little on the slow side for me. Sharpness is fine. It doesn't set the world alight with it's image quality but then it's not supposed to. Build quality is solid but plastic as you'd expect at this price point. The main question really is why would you buy this lens?

Amateur-Objektiv

G. Westerkamp, Amazon
17 August 2013
  • Summary: Der Kauf war ein Kompromiss. Das Objektiv, das ich eigentlich wollte gab es nicht. Gerne habt hätte ich sowas wie 28-100/f2 oder zur Not auch 28-100/f2.8 natürlich mit AF. In der engeren Wahl waren das neue 24-70/2.8 VR, das 24-120 und eine Kombi aus Festbrennweiten. Das mit den Festbrennweiten ist im täglichen Einsatz oft zu kompliziert, man hat nicht die Zeit, großartig zu wechseln.

Nicht schlecht, nicht mehr.

  • Summary: Als Universal- Immerdrauf war es gedacht und günstig auch noch. Aber nach dem ersten Aufsetzen auf meiner D800 folgte die Ernüchterung: Massive Verzerrungen auch bei 85 mm. Ich dachte das geht gar nicht. Aber bei diesem Objektiv ist so einiges möglich... Bitte nicht falsch verstehen, ich hatte gedacht: ein Schnäppchen.
