Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

I love this camera and lens- This is my first SLR- I have always had Nikon's and loved them for their ease of use, and quality images. I thought my cool pix was the greatest thing and never wanted to change, but now that I have this I will never go back.

The photos are crisp, clear, and amazing even before I really learned how to use it. I love that it is easy enough for someone like me to use, but produces professional quality photos.

The Nikor 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 lens is my default lens. I use it to put my Nikon body away and can use the camera as is right from the case. Leaving the lens in place means I have instant access to my camera and I don't miss those shots that are fundamental to the hobbyist. I catch my kittens playing and my wife picking oranges for her mother. It's a great everyday lens.

I'm using this lens for my digital photography class at Ohio State and it is very easy to use and the VR feature built onto the lens is very helpful. This lens is very useful for wide-angle shots as well as up close macros. The only complaint I would have is the lens cap doesn't stay on very well; not that big of a problem, though. All around great!

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

I had been carrying a Nikkor 24-120mm zoom lens since around 2000 when I had an N90, and transferred it to my D200. Since it was the first wide-angle lens of any kind I'd used on the D200, I assumed it was about as good as it got without spending thousands of dollars on glass. Then I stumbled across an on-line review of Nikon's 10 best lenses, and found this little $100+ unit - the same one my sister got with a D40 kit, minus the VR. Being able to go from an effective 35mm focal length back to 18mm was attractive, and the price is definitely low enough to merit a try. After shooting a hundred or so images over the weekend, all I can say is "oh my goodness". I've not seen sharpness like this out of my cameras, ever, and it rivals images I viewed jealously from medium format cameras using high-end optics. It suits my eye perfectly, is stunning in black and white, and very very good in color (if you get past the fact that sharpness isn't always flattering). This is also my first VR lens, and it's pretty cool to be able to shoot handheld inside with shutter speeds of 1/15 or 1/30 without blur.

Yes, it's cheap. Yes, it's plastic. If you break it, you're out a little over $100. Just take reasonably good care of it (i.e. don't turn your camera body into a terrible towel while grasping it only by this lens) and you should be fine. It's not asking much.

I cannot see why this wouldn't be the default wide-angle lens for any Nikon DX body owner. At the very minimum, *any* Nikon DX shooter should have this lens in the bag.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

Good starter lens. The VR works quite well. Not the fastest but not the slowest lens. Will do just fine for pictures of the family, inside/outside the house, some close up work. Not going to do real close up macro, or zoom in to the endzone at the football game. Nikon makes good glass, and if you use this in the range its made for, it works well.

I'm a painter. I use my d300 to shoot the plans for my paintings every day. Sometimes with studio lights, faces, bodies. Sometimes candid shots for the nice moments on the streets... and I use the camera to document my paintings. I had lenses only from a different company. I did not want to believe it, but I felt some problems with the quality in some situations. No more questions! I have my new Nikkor lens for some days and I already know the answers. It's just perfect!

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

I've used this for a few weeks now and really like it. I bought it as a lightweight travel lens for an upcoming trip. It's really pretty wonderful, especially for the price. Although the mount is plastic, it still feels surprisingly sturdy. The focusing ring is a little awkward if you're a large handed person that needs manual focus however. Focal point in front of the lens is much closer than you expect. Sharpness and color are both captured beautifully with this glass. If you're looking for something you can abuse for years to come then this may not be for you. If you need a good all around utility lens and light weight and a cheap price look no further.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

I was novice buying my first DSLR. All I wanted was SHARP photos. I wanted to be sure the camera package I purchased came with the VR lens because I'd read about how good it was at reducing image blur. After using this lens for two weeks, and taking 1000s of pictures in all conditions, it has not disappointed me in any way. I use it on my new D60 and it is quiet, auto-focuses very quickly, and takes SHARP photos. The only blurry photos I take are the ones where I'm monkeying around in manual mode with setting I don't fully understand yet. The zoom is obviously limited to 55mm and F3.5 doesn't really let you get a depth of field blur like a lense with an F2, but I'm still very happy.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

This is one great lens. I replaced a standard version when it got banged up and broke at the mount(plastic is very light but does have some deficiencies.) The VR version is simply better. Pics are a bit sharper(VR or no VR) and the VR comes in handy quite a bit. Yes, it could have a bit more reach but you know you are buying a 55mm when you get it. Highly recommended.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

This lense is easily attached to the camera body which makes switching a breeze. Focusing is a snap which helps to make the best, the clearest pictures that I have ever seen. The best part is the VR, granted if you are moving the camera it will produce a blurr but just on the still shot the pictures a clear and free of the little shadows from vibration. I cannot say enough about this lense better yet the entire camera is awesome. I definately would purchase it again.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

Lens was a kit lens sent with a D80. Bought as a backup in case main lens goes down. Lens works good a quick to focus. Main use is backup but is used by my wife to help me photograph events. Worth the money just as a backup until you can afford to by pro lens.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

This lens is super sharp, and very light weight. Very little distortion, quiet, fast and accurate focus. The mounting ring is plastic, not metal, and that is the only con I can find. Filter ring diameter is 52mm, so it is compatible with most older Nikon filters. A bargain.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

My wife and I are novices with the Nikon SLR, but I am very familiar with the line and have done alot of research. I highly recommend sticking with the Nikkor lenses as they were designed specifically for the Nikon SLRs. This lens is the one you want for everyday use, and it happens to be the cheapest! The VR function greatly improves clarity as it stabilizes every picture taken. My next investment will be the 55-200mm AF/VR lens. [...]

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

This is a great first lens to use with the Nikon D80 (or the D60 or the D40x). I say this because the range is ordinary, not quite extreme wide angle and not quite zoom/telephoto. However, it's a sharp, clean lens that will allow you to get acquainted with your camera and is wonderful for general use, such as fun, landscape and some night photography. However, I wouldn't recommend it for sports/action, photojournalism, wildlife or portraits, as the zoom stops at 55mm. A good general use lens.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

The glass on this is really good. I had been studying this lense for some time and made the purchase (plus another [$]) when I found I could get it with VR. I had been hesitant to buy this same lense w/o VR although the reviews were good on the glass there as well. For the price (cheap for a nikon)this is an excellent lense. It is not my primary lense but it works for the occassional need and I oftn leave it on my D300 because of its light weight.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

I've been taking pictures since I was in Vietnam in 1968 and have evolved from a Petri 7S, to A Nikkormat, F1, FM, FM2, F3, FM3, D70, D70S to a D300 and have found the Nikon Lense the only true mate with the Nikon body. When I wanted an economical 18-55mm zoom for my 13 year old daughter I purchased a Nikon lense and now she continues the tradition. Their is no better system.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

I really enjoy using this lens. It works great for everything from close up flowers, to landscape scenery. The details are fantastic and it is so much fun to take pictures with. It came as a kit lens with my D60. I have taken several thousand pictures with this lens. Generally it takes very good pictures.

Occasionally however it hunts a bit before finally focusing, and I have lost a couple of shots because of this.

It also has a bit of vignetting around the corners when using my circular polarizer and UV filters, at the widest angle settings. See the un-cropped lake shot for an example.

Over all it is a great general use lens for the money.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

As the kit lens, the landscape shots I had with this lens are sharp. Effective VR makes it possible to take city skyline during dusk with hand-held camera. Manual focus ring has a very limited rotating range--difficult to get a good focus in a hurry. Lens flare is easily noticeable if you point the lens towards the direction of light. Soft picture if you accidentally left the zoom off markers.

I've shot Nikon for many years and bought this lens to see what VR was all about. The short answer, VR works (as long as subject is not moviing). My hands have gotten a little less steady over the years, but this lens has increased my number of keepers lately. I now leave this VR lens on my camera all the time. They used to say "F8 and be there!", well now I can handhold F8 agian :)

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

The Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens is a great zoom lens. I bought it together with my Nikon D300. I had read favorable reviews in several popular photography magazines and on recommended internet sites, which rate lenses. I too agree - it is sharp throughout the entire focal range and excellent at the long range of 50-55 mm. On a DX digital cameras its focal length extends to 82.5 (55 x 1.5) and a perfect range for head & shoulder shots. It only lacks the speed of the Nikkor 50 mm f1.8D and could not compare to its nice bokeh (out-of-focus blur). Thus, it is a great lens for daylight shooting.

The zoom is fairly dampened and the auto focus is very fast. The VR (vibration reduction) works great for hand-held shots for those, like me, with shaky hands. It might not be the most rugged of lenses but, it is does feel somewhat sturdy for this price range.

The attached portrait was made on a tripod with the VR off. The second was hand-held with VR on.

Bought this as a kit with the D60... so I have this lens and the 55-200mm lens. I don't know very much on the technical side, but it seems like a good lens to start out with. Between the two I'm able to get the image I want and practice some of the techniques they show in the DVDs that accompanied the kit.

Pros, Cons, Best Uses: I had to pick something, and as a beginner it seems like a decent lens.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

I have used this lens for snap shots of the family and semi professionally shooting sports. Why I typically use the zoom lens for action shots, I have used this lens when lighting was poor and had good results. This is my first digital SLR camera and lens, and I am impressed with the responsiveness of lens in terms of auto focusing and vibration reduction.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

Good general purpose lens, wish it had a bit more zoom range. I would move up to the 18-135 if it were offered with Vibration Reduction, until then, this lens is my main lens. Haven't even used the off brand 55-200 lens (other than a few test shots) which came with my Nikon D80 package.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

I am surprised that I like this lens, for I was expecting that I would find its images not sharp enough. I mostly use a Nikon 70-200 VR lens, which gets terrific images, but needed at times to take more wide-angle shots than that lens allows, so ordered the 18-55mm. It's proving to be just the addition to my lens collection that my work requires. I'm not sure yet that it will measure up when I zoom to 50 or 55mm and shoot people's faces, but I guess I'll find out. I'm also not sure that its plastic body will hold up if I bang the lens against things. But so far, so good. I think the VR feature makes all the difference between this and previous wide-angle lenses that I've had.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

I have only one concern about this lens, and that's the construction materials used that surround the main piece of glass on the end/outside of the barrel. I have no idea how, but something has dented one side of the housing. I keep the darned thing in a cushioned bag when I'm not using it, so, I was very surprised to find this had happened. Upon closer inspection, that part of the frame around the exterior glass lens is nothing but plastic, which is rather easy to break and or dent. Nikkor lenses...should be more rugged than that! But, all in all, it's still a great lens to have.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

I use this lens for all of my food shots for my prize collection. The great thing about this lens is that it is light weight, and gves tack sharp photos, even in low light situation. The quick focus makes for great photos. Before i got this lens i was shooting about 40 shots of my dishes, now i take five.

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

Last year I purchased the Nikon D50 body only and used my 28-80 lens. Now that I've learned more and know what I need I decided to purchase this lens (especially since I am now shooting weddings). I just got it today, but I know I will love it. I am able to shoot indoors without a tripod. This will be great for photos of the cake, favors, etc when I am in low light. The angle is awesome too, but that's a given. Not sure how much blur I will get when the subject is moving, but we'll see. It's worth it to spend the extra $20 for the VR!!!

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

Got this to go with a D300 rather than the 18-200mm VR lens that everyone else seems to be getting for [$] more and found that other than not going to 200mm, it suits me well and is sharper than my old manual focus prime lenses- even my very sharp 20mm f/4 AI lens. Great pictures. Wish they made the 17-55mm f/2.8 with VR...

Comments about Nikon Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S DX Nikkor VR Lens:

upgraded from the lens included in the D40 kit. The vr is about the only way to make the lens any better for the money. it is slightly larger and heavier than the standard 18-55mm. on mine the barrel takes a bit more to move but thats about all i can fault this lens on. where as my pictures would get blurry i low light the addition of the vr makes a marked improvement. at [$]it is one of the best deals to be had in lenses
