  1. Hi. I'm an amateur to the dslr cameras. I purchased a Nikon D5200 kit that came with this lens. Is this lens still "relevant" or have they come out with a newer model that would be worth the investment. I'm just shooting YouTube videos. Hope you understand my question.

  2. Hei Gordon this is a question a lot of my freinds and myself too is concerned about. If we can buy between nikon 18-55mm and tamron 18-200mm ofcourse both are cheap – Which one is a good option only in terms of quality of images produced by them on a nikon d3200 or whatever!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Gordon, Truth be told I am not a Nikon camera user, my father is. I'm looking to buy a lens for him, but haven't the slightest idea which lens to get him based on his description of what he wants. He wants a lense that can zoom & able to be used for macro. I'm not sure if such a lens exists, but the lens you reviewed is what was recommended to me. I trust your knowledge of this lens and wondered if you could share your thoughts on how well this camera can do with macro photography.

  4. and just to save your ass from goofing as such let me teach you at least, small nikon bodies such as D40 D3000 D5000 D3100 D3200 D5100 etc dont have a AF motor on them hence making them compact, however the big bodies such as D90 D7000 D300s D700 D800 etc do have silent motor on board. only the G series of Nikkor group lenses come with af motor the rest dont, so say if you mount a 70-300 AFs D to a D5100 its not going to be auto focus but if you put the same lens on D90 af works perfect

  5. bro no offence but AF-s does not mean that it has a built in motor for auto focus at all, it means its auto focus compatible, what indicates it has a motor is the letter G in the end of the name tag 18-55 AF-s G
    the G series have built in motors, rest like like D dont have and rely on the body motor

  6. Hi Gordon,

    I brought a D90 kit and it came with this exact lense. I have had the camera for about a year now and Im looking to buy a new lense soon, just wondering what lense should I buy as a second one? 18 to 200mm ?

    Thanks!

  7. Is there anybody else out there having problems with this lens? Mine is making a clunking noise with a small but noticeable vertical bouncing movement while half-pressing the shutter button… it is not affecting the outcoming picture but it is kind annoying… Any comment / advice will certainly be welcome!

  8. hi your video helps me a lot.
    i got this same kind of lens and recently i had a t-shirt product shoot. what happened was the output is blurry and lens is not zooming beyond 45mm… i am totally confused and i need your help… what might be the problem? i checked the lens glasses and mirror they all look normal…

  9. Thank you! You are the best camera reviewer! You explain slowly and clearly pros and cons of all devices. I have this lens and I learned more about this product from this video.

  10. On this lens, I am having a trouble with image quality. Now even when I take a photograph in an ideal light situation. The center of the photo will be sharp while everything around the center seems to go a little blurry (on a single solid object). I'm hoping you can give me an answer to this, If this is not supposed to happen, I need to return it! Thanks 🙂
