Nikon 18-70 f/3.5-4.5G AFS DX

DX-18-70_L
Review Date: Jul 1, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Good build, price, size and weight.
Cons:
None that I can think of for this price

Absolutely loving this lense! Especially as its replacing my kit lense that is now a number of years old, so this lense is easily a step up, and for not too much money as well!

Ive taken some absolutely stunning photos with this lense, really loving 18mm! Havent really noticed any vignetting, but there you go.

Review Date: Jul 1, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: f2.8, cost, build, image quality.
Cons:
Doesnt have OS!

Ive had this lense for a couple years now, originally purchased and first used in November 2006 and captured some great shots late on Winters day on the 11th of November!

This is my main "action" lense, which has enough leeway to allow me to reach out and capture people who are unaware Im photographing them.

Loving f2.8, havent noticed images are soft but there you go!

When coupled with Sigma's 1.4 extender this camera becomes a 80-280mm lense, and with this combination I captured possibly one of my best ever photos;

Anyway, this is a fantastic lense which you can capture the same images you would with either Canon or Nikon equivalent lenses for a fraction of their costs.

Highly recommended.
