Pros: Simple and Honest Lens, Good Image Contrast and sharpness, Surprisingly nice zooming and general handling, Quick Focus, Effective VR, good price if bought as part of a kit or split from a kit (white box)

Cons: Lack of Distance Scale, Lenshood not supplied as standard; Strong distortion, especially barrel at 18mm; Price, too expensive if bought as separate lens (Gold box) - many shops won't stock it as a separate for this reason.

Opinion: A standard zoom that you can just put on your Nikon (mine is D7100) and go out and use. You know that it will always do the job. Nothing pretentious or extravagant about it at all. Replaces the non stabilised 18-135mm Nikon. Basically, I sold my aged Mk 1 Nikkor 18-200mm, which I never really liked and by buying a new, split from kit white box on Ebay, only had to find a few pounds extra. Because of the shorter range than the 18-200mm it handles much better, never feels cumbersome and more importantly, unlike that 18-200mm, is reliably and consistently sharp at all normally used daylight apertures and is still fully usable at f5.6 @ 140mm. Build Quality is acceptable and adequate - you won't be celebrating its robustness but neither will you have real reason to question it either. Like all modern Nikon lenses, drop it and it's broken but if used normally, will last a good few years, until you upgrade. Equivalent to a still very useful 27-210mm in full frame terms, it's a really useful walkabout landscape lens. I carry a longer lens, too, such as Sigma 120-400mm and always carry a Nikkor 10-24mm for wider use. I would prefer a distance scale and I think it is wrong for Nikon to not include a lenshood, I always carry and use one but this one is not too expensive (20 Euro) on Amazon. There's no zoom lock but mine shows no creep, the zoom is really nicely weighted. Close focus is about the usual for such a zoom these days, useful for picking out a flower and such at 140mm but not much more than that. Strong barrel distortion at 18mm and pincushion at longer lengths yet still less than that 18-200mm and the characteristics are uniform and so are easily correctable in processing. In conclusion, until Nikon (or a third party) can reliably convince of very good image quality (a Sigma Art, perhaps??!) that cover a longer reach then this lens will do. It is unexciting and rather boring but is still a good dependable lens for just about anyone and of any standard, The Juza score of 9.2 seems very high, meaning a good number of users awarded a 10/10, I think more like an 8/10 but then thinking what it cost me and what it delivers, then I'll go with 9/10.

Pros: 7.8X zoom range...4 stops of V.R. .... you can get as close to 1.48feet from your subject for macro-style close up...lightweight... has one AS-aspherical lens elements ...has ED-extra low dispersion element and super ED glass. so for the money you get a top notch versatile lens

Cons: polycarbonate plastic ..its not frigel like an egg but if do drop it...bang it around....rough with it you might have problems or broken lens

Opinion: If you are needing a general purpose or a travel lens to use i think this is a great one to get. i am own a budget i was needing this type of lens my first choice was the nikon 16-85mm lens but its so expensive i was looking for a used one and still expensive so i went to adorama and found this one for $294.00 U.S.A dollors this was in my budget to spend and i have no regrets. i do recommend going to amazon and looking for a lens hood for it i found one for $3.00 U.S.A. dollors. then getting a great polarizer filter like hoya HD or B+W with the way the lens is made with all the special glass using a polarizer it makes your photos pop i have really enjoy this lens

Pros: Compact, light and fairly sharp at all focal points, price

Cons: Distortion, lack of lampshed at purchase

Opinion: Sold on the 18-200, I took this lens alongside the d5600, despite having d780 and similar optics. I needed something practical and light for sudden hikes and outings. The 18-140, unlike its detractors, is the best 18- xxx of the nikon, excellent construction quality to the touch and use of zoom, excellent Af, but the actual positive note is the discreet sharpness to all the focals even the longest ones, and from edge to edge, the Mtf tests support this impression of me even to diaphragms more open. Backlight behavior is also positive. Slight diffraction at f11 and f22, and a little vignetting at 18mm. While distortion at shorter focal points is present and noticeable. In the end it is sharp, what I basically look for from an optical point of view, certainly not a blade like 70-200 2.8 or fixed optics, but it always makes great photos. Vote 9.5

Pros: Versatile lightweight

Cons: Disappointed by the lack of sharpness at the long focals, I sell it to move to 16/80

Opinion: Purchased by reading the various opinions here but in my opinion it is not valid as reviewed, at the most extensive focal points it has a lack of sharpness and the VR did not satisfy me, if you want to travel light it is fine but nothing more. In its favour it has the price but this factor affects quality, those who praise it have not made comparisons with other lenses, I consider it a poor objective when compared with optics such as 16/80 towards which it has the only advantage of cost.

Pros: Lightness, focal ranges, sharpness, AF speed, stabilization

Cons: Un bright, light lampshade not supplied but can be purchased separately with a few euros.

Opinion: Great value for money, on the quality of the lens there is little to say is known to everyone. I needed a medium zoom lens and my choice fell on this lens. On the field it behaves very well, the best it gives on the medium diaphragms and focal points, it is certainly not a sample of brightness but you have to take into account the type of use and cost. The weight is 490 grams. lighter than the Sigma 50mm 1.4 EX DG HSM in my possession weighing 500g. I notice a bit of optical aberration and at the maximum focal point highlights a bit of vignette all solvable in post. production. Recommended for all generic photography, a little less for those specific categories that require maximum brightness.
