Great lens. I've been using this lens more then ...

  • Summary: Great lens. I've been using this lens more then my kit lens. Very sharp and with low light photography it stands better then most lenses out there. It definitely is a step up for a kit lens and it's a great walk around lens. Built strong and heavy. It doesn't feel like a cheap at all, it feel like a well built lens.

Solid lens, i would buy it again.

  • Summary: Great lens! I am very happy about the image quality and speed of focus. The only thing I dont like is that this is a 3:1 macro lens and not a true 1:1 macro. I am not disappointed in the lens but the purchase of this lens helped me to understand all macro lenses are not the same.

worse than kit lens

Claire, Amazon
22 January 2014
  • Summary: This lens did not meet my expectations of being better than my kit lens, Nikon 18-55mm. It was very slow to focus and many pictures came out blurry. I expected it to do better in lower light situations like indoors. Also the color in the pictures was off. It was shipped quickly and the seller has been great so far. We are in communications on making an exchange.

Excellent ROI

fmcf, Amazon

  • Summary: I like these lenses a lot and it has been my only one for the past 2 years. Excellent images and love the fact that the mechanism is all internal, rather than external like the Nikkor lenses. Only drawbacks are that sometimes I feel that the auto-focus doesn't work at it's best capacity in some conditions that I'm still trying to understand and that it doesn't come with the apperture/depth-of-field ruler. Other than that, excellent return of investment.

  • Summary: This is a great lens! You can't beat the 2.8 for this price! Bought this with a new Nikon D5200, and it is much cheaper and better than the kit lenses.

Nice glass - 2.8 constant aperture is a great tool

Danny Yu, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: I have this mounted on my D200 and D5100, both with great results. As much as I love using my Nikon 35mm 1.8, sometimes you just need that extra versality and range. The 18 - 30mm range is very useful for food shots, closeups, and wide angle shots. I love this glass. The sharpness and color is quite good and similar to the nikon lens I have. It's not quite as vivid and clean, but the results are easy to work with and can be easily fixed post-processing.

A good all around lens

Michael C, Amazon
10 June 2013
  • Summary: When i first purchased this lens, i was kind of shocked it sold for under $200. for a fast 2.8 at 18mm aperture and zoom, its great for indoor shots. when you zoom out to 50mm, it does make the aperture much tighter. I do wish it was 2.8 all the way through. The images are pretty sharp. great carry around lens. Lets face it, for under $200, you obviously cant go wrong with whatever you're using it for. just buy it.
