Pros: Léger,polyvalent,excellent a f/8,souvent sous estimer,bien pris en main capable de merveille a moindre cout

Cons: Un peu fragile

Opinion: C'est mon objectif de tous les jours,certes c'est un objectif standard ,mais il fait le job,se comporte très bien en voyage,très polyvalent,allant du paysage a la proxyphoto en passant par le portrait. Un peu de distorsion a 18mm mais sa s'arrange a 24mm. Ceci dit c'est un objectif a utiliser en journée, des la nuit tombé cela se complique,donc je l'accompagne du 35mm f/1,8g . En conclusion c'est un très bon objectif standard pouvant dépanner a merveille....

Pros: Light, Sharp, Fast (focus), inexpensive

Cons: f5.6 at long end isn't ideal, could be built more solid

Opinion: I bought a d7100 body only because I did not think this lens was worth buying. Locally a guy was selling cheaply and I bought as a stop gap until I could afford a better lens. I was surprised at how good it is as focussing and how well the colours and contrast and by how sharp it is. OK it is not a fixed or fast aperture lens (so its not fantastic in lower light, but f5.6 at anything over 80 is still good for portrait isolation), but I rate it about as good as my previously owned 24-105mm f4 L that i owned when I used canon. To me its that good and certainly a lens I will be keeping

Pros: Focal range, weight, versatility

Cons: Construction, brightness

Opinion: Preferable to standard kit 18-55. Excellent lens handyman to start. The range 18-105 allows you to cover most focal lengths when you are on the road and you do not want to carry too much weight. The optics is not very bright, but it does its job. I found at times faulty the coupling mechanism of the CAP.

Pros: Lightweight, versatile, reliable and more robust than you might suppose

Cons: Excessive price for product quality

Opinion: It is an honest, reliable in all aspects (AF-VR) and versatile optics. From the comparative tests of my sample, it has a lower clarity than the 18-55 VR (first version, which was more than worthy optics -empty my sample-). Its plastic structure and the manufacturing in strict cost reduction, starting from the plastic bayonet, generate serious doubts on how much its price is reasonable rather than inflated by marketing impositions. Regardless of my opinion, it must be said that it is the classic optics to leave mounted on its entry level DSLR type D3xxx series, a combination that for lightness and size is the ideal shipping companion for light walking. The images on a 16 and 24 mpix are still good and well contrasted, not surprising for clarity and plasticity but it would be absurd to look for the hair in the egg with this category of lenses. A deserved honorable mention: from the EXIF ??date, I discovered with amazement that a friend of mine with this lens coupled to a D3200 hasor about 150,000 images in three years (in many trips and expeditions in the mountains of the world); arrived at about 100,000 shots the optics had problems with autofocus and was repaired (under warranty !!!). Consider the conditions of the -artoriato-body machine that has always hosted it (even the plastic one), on which, among other things, ALL the silk-screen printing has disappeared due to the abrasion of the fingers and the matt finish of the surfaces has left the placed to large sections polished by intense use, it must however be admitted that ... plastic yes or plastic no, it is actually a reliable and recommendable travel companion. vote 8 (not absolute but in relation to its category)

Pros: Good All-Rounder, discreetly sharp, little distortion, good A-f, and acceptable aberrations.

Cons: A little dark, plastic attack,if you do not pay attention suffers a bit of flare.

Opinion: Ultimately the focal excursion makes it a good lens all do, to carry in your bag when traveling. A bit plastic in the construction and the dial of the focus limited. When used in good light condition can still give good shots with a quality color rendering. The plastic bayonet attachment is the real sore neo of this lens, but if used with caution it should not create problems. Some chromatic aberration and not very bright.
