  1. I just got the Nikon D5600 with two kit lenses, one being 18 – 55 mm kit lens and this lens as well for about $650 USD. Wow!! What a deal!! The camera is a beginner DSLR but is really nice to use and hold and both the lenses actually work very well. I am impressed with the image quality from the 24.2 MP sensor through both these lenses. Not all of us are Pro camera men and so we just need a decent image not necessarily the opportunity to use the one in ten thousand shot facility. Do you really need to have a shutter that does 1/8000 of a second?? Do you really need an F0.95 lens?? A camera set up like this one gives the family man a great camera and great shots. Thank you Nikon.

  2. This lens does not have built in autofocus motor. So it will not autofocus with nikon 5500.its quite difficult to focus in outdoor events. Good for portrait photography like in a studio. But outdoor picture quality is good if you could manage to focus sharply..

  3. Please review the Nikon 18-140….as all the vids I have seen on it are not useful.
    Judging by this video which I just happened to stumble on…..this is how you review a product…….very well.done.
    Thanks for taking the time to make this video.

  4. I was surprised by beginner questions here. Due to swivel LCD panel and excellent image quality, I always felt this is a more than good enough camera for the experienced, but, indeed, beginners pay attention to this camera so much. Then, I do not see many pros using this camera at all. So my bad. Haha~!
    This lens is very sharp but not many people know that. You pick that point!!! But it is also sold as a bundle lens often without "VR." People should pay attention to "VR" at the end of lens name. I just wished you mention that in your video, too.

  5. The plastic mount broke the first day I bought it, drop from car seat to the floor and the lens is inside my padded camera bag attached to dslr. Nice lens, bad quality on the mount, I would pay extra $100 just for the metal mount, shame.

  6. This is a very sharp lens, also lightweight, great feel to the zoom, it can't be beat for the money.
    I used this lens to get some great shots of hummingbirds near my home.

  7. hi the hybrid shooter, i just want to ask if this is a better option or should i get an all around lens such as sigma 18-300mm or tamron 18-270mm lens? i usually do picture and video my daughter's school activity and i'm deciding on getting a good range. my camera is a nikon d5600. btw i do both pictures and stills..

    excellent review by the way! hope for your reply! thanks in advance!

  8. Got it for my d5300 and loving it very much.. The construction may look similar to the 18-55 kit lens but the optics are really really good. The images are sharp even at 300mm and the sharpness is even better than my yongnuo 50 mm f1. 8 prime. The AF is as fast as the kit lens and the VR allows me to go below 1/125s shutter speed at 300mm which is impressive in its own right. To anyone planning to get this lens, I'd give my green flag to go ahead and get it. The price is just so affordable. Just make sure you get the variant with VR. The little extra is well worth paying for.
