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: Reliability, optical rendering valid at all focal lengths and apertures throughout the frame, focal range, stabilizer. Very competitive overall package.

Cons: Deformation, autofocus now a bit obsolete for precision and noise.

Opinion: "It has the plastic bayonet" among the most recurrent criticisms, yet it clicks and does not break. I could be the one who put this lens on the rope more than anyone else as I used it assiduously on d90 for 6 years of which 1 spent traveling in Asia like crazy in extreme conditions for temperatures, sand, humidity, various vibrations and think a little, it still works great (bayonet included ...) and also looks good, giving me good shots even in difficult conditions. So the impression is slightly fragile, but in reality it resists and how. I think it is the most underrated lens of the whole park dx nikon, the best among the dark zooms as better than the 18-55 for performance and focal range, better than the 16-85 because it offers practically the same performance costing half, and better than the 18-200 because this drops to too many quality compromises, weighs more and cost 3 times as much. Now it is better to take its new version, the 18-140 which has the same performance and an extended range. Now I have a d750 with a set of fixed f1.4 and a 24-120 f4 that weighs twice as much, and this lens so light I miss. It does not create the magic of fixed 1.4, but we would lack more, but it is quite sharp and constant at all focal lengths, has beautiful colors, contained aberrations, a remarkable resistance to backlight and a reliable yield in all conditions. The focus ring has play and is almost indecent to use. Zoom quite smoothly. In general, a lightweight, versatile, optically valid and economical lens in order to spend what you save on fixed lenses. At the moment my father uses it on d3200, so he has been shooting non-stop for 12 years (despite the plastic bayonet...) On the d90 it was a bit limited in use at optimal light conditions, but on modern cameras with better high iso yields its field of use extends.

Pros: Useful focal length, versatility

Cons: Quality however only discreet, vignetting

Opinion: Personally, I do not think there is much to be said about this objective. Its biggest strength is the focal hike, with its 18-105mm when I'm in town I can take almost everything I need, I managed to take some cute photos and no one has ever complained about the quality. VR works but it's not great. At 18mm I notice a bit of distortion and a slight drop in quality, for me nothing dramatic. A f/5.6 becomes sharp enough for all situations. I used it for a few years but now it is in one of my photo bags not to do anything, I abandoned it in favor of the 35mm f/1.8 DX and the 50mm f/1.8 G, and if I really need 50-70mm of focal more I use the 70-300mm AF-P VR DX, which beats it in all. The biggest defect I have encountered is vignetting at certain focal lengths and in certain particular situations, it goes away I believe only partially if you shoot at f/10-11. I would recommend it only if found at less than 150-200 euros, but at that price perhaps it is worth trying to get the 18-140mm. Rating: 7.9, maybe I'm a little too generous but since I've been using it without problems for several years I'm very fond of it.

Pros: Provided in kit, focal excursion

Cons: Photo quality only discreet, in my opinion it is useless to have a reflex and do not use better lenses...

Opinion: All in all honest. When I bought my Nikon d3400 (used by a private) it was provided in kit, so it was my first lens that I used. The weight is not excessive, the focal excursion good. The photos he churns out are also pretty good, but as soon as you try better optics here's the difference you see right away. I sold it for pretty much the same amount I had shelled out for the entire body machine kit included! Given back to take adding 20 euros a fixed nikon 35mm... other world! Before that I had bought the nikon afp dx70-300 zoom, and already this gives him the "pay" sharply, vr, speed, everything. Now I have added to my small kit the sigma 17-50 f2.8 which I find fantastic. To conclude, in my opinion it may be good to make bones, but as said "in the cons", it does not do justice to modern camera sensors, which deserve better. Vote 7
