Good but Heavy

  • Excerpt: It's a very good all in one lens, but it's a little bit heavy to carry all day long. Instead of it, recommend buying it.

Great travel lens

Abstract Southwest, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is a nice compact zoom that is great for travel. The 18-270mm is the equivalent of a 28-430mm in a 355 mm equivalents, and it meant that I could get some great telephoto shots. The VC worked ok - it's a bit strange though because when you press the shutter release half-way to lock focus, the view shifts slightly and the VC is engaged. Overall the lens is reasonably sharp and focuses relatively quickly.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great zoom range
  • Cons: Slow At Longe End, Soff At Edges, Soft At Edges, Some distortion

Good all-in-one for the price

Cuyuna Rob, B&H Photo
14 July 2014
  • Excerpt: Purchased this lens after much delay when the rebate was increased so I could use it as a walk-around lens on my Nikon D5000 during a trip to Alaska. It's not pro quality - and I wouldn't expect it to be at the price - but it served me well on the trip. I was able to shoot wide angle landscapes as well as zoom in on distant wildlife and geographic features without having to change lenses, which is the whole point of a lens like this.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Lens Creep

all-in-one lens live up to its name

Jim the shutter buster, B&H Photo
30 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I'm a newbie when it comes to photography. A little of that and a little of this, but I found a lens that truly live up to its name when it comes to having an all-in-one lens that's fully functional and with its degree of usefulness. Now I don't have to change lens anymore whenever I got to roam around. This lens seemed to deliver what is required of it in almost every situation, maybe except at night.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Improves Picture Quality, Interfaces Well With Camcorder
