Really nice wide to mid - angle lens

  • Summary: Having upgraded from the DX format to full frame, this lense replaced a similar focal length lens. Could not be happier with the quality, focus time, and general features of the lens. Hope to add additional Nikor lenses soon. Really can't go wrong with Nikor lenses ..

Not fully satisifed

Alank, B&H Photo
25 August 2014
  • Excerpt: This is the first Nikon lens that has not lived up to my expectations completely. The zoom is quite stiff - much more than on my 18- 200mm f/3.5-4.5 VR G DX - and not equally stiff through the range. I have not had a chance to really test the picture quality, but trial shots have been satisfactory for a decent walking around FX lens.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Useful zoom range
  • Cons: Stiff And Uneven Zoom

  • Excerpt: Greta results for a walk about do it all inexpensive lens. Not a pro lens, but with a little imagination and moderate skill in post you can make it work.

Solid, walk-around general purpose lens

  • Excerpt: I normally rent the 24-70 2.8 for specific projects but found that I needed a reasonably similar economical solution available onsite all the time; this lens fills that need for me. Its compact, reasonably sharp and the VR offsets the 3.5-4.5 max aperture limitation; works very well hand-held at lower speeds.
  • Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
  • Cons: Minor Lens Distortion, Stiff Manual Handling

Great lens!!!

  • Summary: Super sharp, light weight walk around lens. VR helps render sharp images in low light. Really the only lens I need, I have an 18 ultra-wide and the 50mm 1.8, but this stays on my Df 95% of the time!

Good FX lens for Travel

p6design, B&H Photo
5 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Like many of us, I read a few reviews of this lens before the purchase. It was said to be sharp, good VR, good zoom range for travel, loaded with distortion and some light fall-off. At the end I decided to go with this lens knowing its limitations. To me the the good-enough image quality, weight, price-peformance are my key criteria for a travel lens. I used this lens to complement my Zeiss 28mm f/2 on a trip to Europe.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Good sharpness, Lightweight
  • Cons: Distortion
