Opinion:I also read negative reviews about this goal. Which I have to tell you: I'll be lucky, because of the three thousand shots I made him do he didn't patch up practically any. It focused lightning and very quiet, excellent contrast and color, no vignette, no chores and, more importantly, perfect detail. The material used is not plastic but a robust and light polycarbonate with which even formula one machines are manufactured. Bought in kit with the D3500, it frankly surprised me and quite a lot, positively. Only do you have a right then? No: it has no buttons, so for focus and VR you have to use the camera controls. Small annoyance that does not affect the quality of the result. Considering also the price and the weight, my vote can only be 10.
Opinion:Sharp, fast, quiet, ultra-light, very effective stabilization. The barrel distortion towards the wide-angle focal sits are automatically corrected, chromatic aberration (especially towards the edges) to be corrected in PP, flare almost inexhaustive, the real limit I find in the focal range, too normal, too limiting x i my tastes, but these are personal tastes rather than real flaws. Pulling the sums, considering the price, has unbeatable value/price, a best buy in practice.
Pros:Perfect for getting started in a kit with a camera - Lightweight, easy to use and cheap - precise autofocus, good sharpness and
Cons:Pretty present chromatic aberrations - Show its limitations by going slightly out of the box and with professional purposes
Opinion:As an amateur photographer and videomaker I would say that this lens is really fantastic for those who start to enter the world of digital machines. Very light, easy to use and with a good visual rendering. The maximum opening of 5.6 (4.5 only at 18mm) is certainly not suitable for many things and in scarcity of light proves its flaws, however if used in standard situations can come out so many interesting shots. The chromatic aberration is very present; although with retouching software you can eliminate it almost completely, sometimes there are still some flaws in the details. The distortion of the lens, on the other hand, is not annoying and corrects easily. Even for video recording he does very well. VR works well, even if you don't have to overdo it with movements; if we can keep the camera we manage to have fairly stable shots that can be safely adjusted in post-production. The autofocus is not noisy and always remains very precise. The focus dial is very fluid and using the manual focus is always a pleasure; Zoom is a bit stiff, so it's hard to avoid that jerky effect during videos. For the photo side I took close-ups, landscapes, moving photos during sports matches and concerts (some I put them on the juza profile): never had dissatisfaction, except for personal mistakes. Very often I did not feel the need to touch up the photos so much because both the contrast and the vividness of the colors was satisfactory. For the video side, in addition to some sporadic footage, I used it to record a couple of live music inside a club. The videos didn't come bad, however as a lens it is definitely not suitable for this purpose. Quite stable by bare hand, the 60 fps of the D3400 gave that dynamic touch, but the lack of opening made them decidedly dark and a little depreciated when I didn't have the stage lights in favor. Let's say that for simple videos in general you can settle. To date it is not better to buy it separately, but only if included with the machine body because of quality alternatives there are many. However it is a nice lens that allows you to make several nice shots and shots, a great starting point and then move on to something more expensive once you have experienced.
Cons:Approximate construction, shoddy materials, plastic bayonet, zoom dial that goes in jerky, short-focused chromatic aberrations, bad Autofocus in videos, very strong vignette to almost all focal and diaphragms.... I could add more but I'll stop here
Opinion:Slow to say the least ridiculous! If they give it to you in kit is also fine, you can use it as a body cap machine(!). Seriously, after trying it/used for a long time to convince me that it was not really a crap, something good there is (very little). With VERY light from decent results only to 35 and up focals. For the rest it leaves a lot to be desired: Construction too light/delicate, does not absorb the natural movements of photographing and you have to constantly use VR (NOTE: in my life, 45 years of photography, I never needed the stabilizer!). Zoom inwide position (18 mm) slams into the window at the end of the race (I think put them on purpose so as not to split the mirror). The brightness is not as stated but from the measurements you can safely add a stop, it becomes a 4.5 - 8. Strong vignette.
Pros:Lightness, precision and autofocus speed, price
Opinion:I bought this lens to shoot movies with my D750. It is very fast and precise in focusing and especially does not disturb the audio recording with noises. It is not very bright so it should be used with good light. It's a DX Unfortunately, I expected that other lenses also come out for FX, maybe a 24/70, but it seems to me that at the moment there is nothing on the horizon.
