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: Focus range, sharpness, AF speed, stabilization.

Cons: Dark, because in kit you tend to underestimate it.

Opinion: Taken in kit in 2017 with the D7200, it remained in the drawer a few years because I thought it did not have enough quality in terms of rendering of the images. So much so that you replaced it with a Tamron 17-50 f/2.8. Over time, however, I "discovered" that the photos I take mainly in the day time to more closed diaphragms and so here this lens sadly returns to my bayonet where it should always be. The speed and precision of the AF are always excellent and also the sharpness more than satisfactory. In addition, the range of focals allows you to switch from landscape to canvases in half a second. The night suffers the most because the maximum opening is what it is. In this case, just rely on a 35mm f/1. 8 and it's right. I finally sold the Tamron. To be honest, I put a sale also this 18-140 but only because I would like to try the 16-80 that given the premises of this optical kit should be a super lens. :)

Pros: Low price, range of use, ease of use, convenience of use.

Cons: Considering it's a lens "KIT" no cons!

Opinion: Like so many I bought this lens in the kit along with the body machine D7100. It is not a perfect goal, however considering that it is often the first lens that is used I would say that it does its job well! From 120 to 140mm it is not very bright and suffers from vignette but in an acceptable way. The value for money is very good. I would like to recommend it to all those who are looking for a handyman without a precise and defined need and without wanting to spend too high figures, surely you will be satisfied!

Pros: Low price, wide range, lightness

Cons: Unluminous, NOT excellent VR, at 140 vignette. Limited for APS-C cameras only

Opinion: It's the classic all-rounder lens that you usually buy together with your first Reflex. Being a handyman obviously doesn't excel in any field. However, the great field of focal points it offers will encourage you to carry you always with you, especially during your travels. Unfortunately the opening of the diaphragms, as soon as you increase the ZOOM a little, almost immediately switches to f5.6 which makes it quite dark and therefore its use is reduced on good daylight days and only in the middle hours. Vr works discreetly, although other NIKON models offer much higher performance. At the maximum focal point there is a marked vignette effect, which we know many likes or can be easily eliminated with PP software. Very low weight and ease in managing ZOOM because with a small rotational movement you can immediately switch from maximum to focal minimum. It is not tropicalized and the presence of a double bayonet system definitely makes it at risk of dust and/or dirt inclusions. I conclude by saying that it is my first purchased lens and, at the moment, I have no intention of giving it away.
