As advertised. Nothing flashy.

  • Summary: A solid lens option for the Nikon D5100. Very good for outdoor pictures and even in well lit indoor areas. No auto focus, but I don't mind doing it myself since I'm not trying to take fast action photos. Can't beat the price for what you get.

Inexpensive zoom lens

Andrew L Loconte, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: The only downside is that it doesn't have auto focus and there are no guides to help focus like there used to be in the old 35mm SLR lenses so you have to just "see" if the scene is in focus. Of course, if it did have autofocus, it would be much more expensive. Upside is the price. I don't think you could get this level of zoom any cheaper - I paid about $40. The quality of the picture is fine. The difference to me comes down to price vs. autofocus.

Decent lens, but there's 2 versions it looks like.

  • Summary: The lens offered appears to have changed alittle. When I bought it back on 3/13 there was no autofocus motor in the lens and was listed as model number A15. Now a new picture appears clearly showing an autofocus motor and the model listed as (A15N). Amazon should probably update the listing description as it still leads the customer to believe there is no autofocus motor. All in all it's a decent cheap lens that will give you alittle more reach than the basic kit lens.

  • Summary: I'm rather new w/ a SLR, but this lense is great. It focuses sharply, and rather quickly. It's quiet, and easy to use. For the price, it provides a nice photo and zoom experience.
