Pros:Lightweight, compact, quiet, decent AF, very good stabilization
Cons:chromatic aberrations, plastic, not very bright
Opinion:Oh, God, how can you say it's sharp? As someone rightly pointed out, for architecture (at close range) the quality of the image is acceptable, good too, for foliage and objects in the distance a little less, so much so that often you have the feeling of shooting with a compact. In high contrast situations, at f/4.5 there are strong chromatic aberrations that sometimes do not even go to f/8. I do not consider the price a pro, I would definitely have preferred a more expensive lens (on 450-500 euros) but more performing in all senses. The autofocus is discreet and really quiet and the optical stabilization is very good (I managed to get shots that can also be used at 1/10s freehand, but I'm sure someone better than me would do better). Finally, it is quite plastic, the attachment is made of plastic, but on the other hand it is very compact and light. Tested on a D5300.
Pros:The lightness and cost, the sharpness and the possibility of filters
Cons:the plastic bayonet
Opinion:This perspective is also part of the group of repentants, already owned in the APS-C period, now bought back for a superlight kit together with the d5600. Ke beautiful colors, an unexpected sharpness from the center to the edges to the right diaphragms, MTF tests confirm this, coupled with sensors without anti-alias filter you gaseously, distortion is present but is controlled directly in the machine. In the backlight practically absent the flare, the purple fringing idem. And then you can also use it in really very interesting FF, tried on the D780 ... azz that Optics. Manual MF is possible in Override and there is VR. That wanting more from an lens of only 227g a constructive miracle of Nikon.. sin only x the plastic bayonet. I am not an ML detractor but with a d5600 everything weighs 692g that work great ... and as also reported by fuji's CEO, long live APS-C.
Opinion:As much as it costs, it's a great goal. If we want to say it all the sharpness is not its strong. Pros: stunning camera angle, small, light, sharpened for architecture. Cons: for naturalistic photos kneads the foliage a bit, does not have the selectors on the barrel. All in all the low brightness that everyone complains I do not see, for the photos you have to do with this lens you often find yourself closing up to 16 to have depth of field. Insoma for what it costs and its versatility I would give vot 10 but for the definition of the foliage and details generally unfortunately do not deserve them.
Cons:Plastic, Limited Performance on Non-Next-Generation Cameras
Opinion:Purchased only a month ago I did not do a lot of tests but I can confirm how much read on most forums, imperceptible and perfect focus. The lens is plastic but in the end even the latest plastics used by Nikon are excellent and if this causes the price to collapse as in this case compared to the older brother 10-24 well come. Even at 10mm the distortion is really minimal, easily corrected in post. To use it on my D7100 I had to update the firmware limiting its use anyway (you can not disable the VR nor autofocus),little bad, it is perhaps the only mole that limits it only to use with the latest generation machines. As in my case complete the kit of optics to take with you (in my case 10-20 , 18-105, 70-300) Recommended !!!
Cons:Brightness; some chromatic but negligible aberration.
Opinion:You can find on the net many tests of this goal, which say more or less the same things: excellent definition especially in the center of the image and intermediate focal points, acceptable and easily correctable distortion, negligible vignette, absence of flare on the one hand, constructive weakness on the other, especially with regard to plastic graft, and some chromatic aberration. Owning one, which I use frequently for architectural photos as well as interiors, especially churches, precise the following. 1) It is comfortable to carry around, given the negligible weight and modest size. 2) From an optical point of view it provides good results from every point of view, definition in the lead. Even at the shortest focal, to notice the slight drop in sharpness on the edges you have to enlarge quite a bit. 3) Quick and flawless focus. 4) The bayonet is not metal but polycarbonate, like Formula 1 cars, jets and the best racing bikes. Is he really going to be that weak? 5) The sore spot is the brightness. The maximum opening, ranging from f/4.5 to 10 mm to f/5.6 to 20 mm, proved insufficient in various circumstances, see interiors of churches. The possibility of having a much higher angle of view than the 18-55 mm of the kit, and therefore to increase the width of the shooting area by a lot, you pay with rather slow shooting times (but the VR helps) and/or with the increase of ISOs that certainly does not benefit the result. If with the lens of the kit you can get all the desired subject into the frame, it is preferable to use the latter, which, with its opening f/3,5-5.6, at 18 mm of focal has a couple of stop advantage and therefore provides visibly cleaner results. This applies, however, only in cases where there is little light. If the light is good, however, the results are qualitatively similar and the 10-20 mm has the gear more than the large angle of field. In conclusion: for those who do not want to spend too much it is a purchase to make without a doubt. Along with a telephoto lens and a macro lens, as well as of course the kit, effectively completes the minimum kit that every amateur photographer should have.
