Great pictures, but this lens is a "delicate flower."
26 September 2014
Summary: This is a good lens, but it is "touchy." They are apparently prone to jamming and that's what happened to mine. I was forced to buy another on and the lens alone costs as much as the entire camera refurbished. Thanks to eBay, I got it for considerably less.
Summary: I needed to replace my original lens and was a bit skeptical because the price on this item was so reasonable. This lens is working perfectly with my Nikon camera and I am very pleased with my purchase.
Summary: I got this 10-30 lens together with the 10 in the zoom-wide-angle Nikon 1 V1 kit. Despite the fact that, in general, I prefer prime lenses, I have to say that I like to 10-30 very much. It is sharp, delivers nice contrast and colors, and it is super compact, well built, the AF is silent and fast. And, of course, the VR works perfectly (with the firmware upgrade). It is especially its compactness which makes it such a pleasure to use.
