Pros: Sharpness, versatility, lightness, price, stabilizer

Cons: Dark, flare resistance, autofocus not impeccable, distortion at the shorter focal, blurred

Opinion: It is worth more than it costs, it is very sharp, light, has a good stabilizer but how dark it is!! It is a lens that allows you to do everything and nothing in the sense that it has a discrete rendering at all focal lengths but does not allow you to make extraordinary photos. When I took the camera I bought this and the 35 fixed F 1.8 and how it ended? That 18-55 I didn't use it anymore. The resistance to flare is not the best, the distortions to 18 mm are important but correctable, I do not like the blurry and sometimes L AF is not very precise. Instead it is very sharp and well stabilized. I do not recommend it however as an optical to start better starting with a fixed that gives much better results.

Pros: Light, versatile, excellent stabilizer, AF valid, low price

Cons: Plastic attack

Opinion: I have it as a back up goal. It works fine, small and extremely compact. I am satisfied with the yield, it was quite clear at all focal lengths and already open to satisfactions. Like every vignette zoom a little, however it has excellent resistance to flare (like the older brother 55-200 VR 2, which I own). Very efficient VR, discreet and silent autofocus. Maybe a little too opposed, tends to close the shadows. But as a general optical rendering goes even better than the 16-85 VR, try to believe. However, I can safely say that the era of "Plasticoni da Kit" is over, at least on the optical level. Mechanically, it is an entry level and it can be seen: plastic connection, not particularly fluid ring, non-friction autofocus ring. However on D7200 it works great and the quality of the images was very good. Promoted with a nice 9. :)

Pros: Lightness, cheapness, reduced filter dimensions, discreet sharpness, silent focus.

Cons: Fears the flare, plasticous, limited excursion, already at 30 mm becomes very dark.

Opinion: I recommend it to anyone to start, as advice just as not hesitate to change it after the first years of photography: it will show its limits. Anyway, it's a little handyman not to be crushed. You notice the lack of lenses ED (beginners do not take it into account!); In short, without infamy and without praise: To start is perfect!

Pros: Superb quality / price ratio

Cons: Given the price I have not found it

Opinion: Hi! RnI do not use the DX format very much, but every time I used this lens I was positively impressed. Very. Maybe I'll have picked up the joker from the deck, but it has a stunning rendition, a stepper motor of very fast focusing that does not feel moving (do you make videos?), An excellent system of vibration reduction. Well, it's plastic, but it's sufficiently strong and light. With what it costs (it is less than 70 euros) did you want it in titanium alloy? Shameless! rnNikon now produces several lenses using plastic instead of metal and many sells them at high prices.rnIf you need a small classic zoom to take you always behind, buy this.rnSe instead you have a very different budget, buy both this zoom that of the focal fisse.rnPoi tell me what you have used more ...

Pros: Sufficient sharpness, stabilizer, light and economical

Cons: Plastic attack, construction

Opinion: Very honest lens if bought in kit or used by kit. New has an off-market price. It is light, sufficiently clear that it becomes excellent at F.8 / 11. The Vr is sufficient to compensate for the low light, typical of these optics. Clearly you can not compare to optics that cost three or four times as much, but you always bring home shots from sufficient to excellent. For me it is to have at least emergency.rnUmberto
