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

DX-18-70_L
Review Date: Dec 19, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Cheap, great kit lense, build quality, ED, AF-S, great range!
Cons:
Slow, not pinsharp.

It's a great kit lense. Beats the 18-55 in every aspect.
The build quality is great, it's light, but sturdy.
18-70mm is a great walkaround coverage. And the AF-S is fast and noise free. This is a great lense!

What bugs me is the 3,5-4,5. It's just to slow for me, I live in Norway and don't get that much light. So I'm looking for exchanging this one with a Tamron 28-75 and a wide angle lense.

I could definetly recommend this one to the kit. Chip in a few extra bucks and get the 18-70 over the 18-55, you won't regret it!!


 
Nikon 50mm f/1.8D AF Nikkor

2137NCP_180
Review Date: Sep 17, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $150.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Price, contrasts, colours, sharpness even @ 1.8!
Cons:
For this price? You kidding me?

I can't believe the sharpness, contrasts and colours this lense produces. I can't say anything bad about this lense considering the small amount of money paid.

This should be in any Nikonians bag.


 
Nikon D70s

D70
Review Date: Sep 17, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,000.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Colours, flash sync/system, SLR, ergonomics, price, sound of the shutter.
Cons:
No optional batter grip, dark viewfinder.

I love this camera. And I will use it to the shutter colapses.
Nikons i-ttl flash system is great, and flash sync up to 1/500!

I also love the ergonomics of this camera, more than on any other camera. The weight and size is perfect and it feels really good to use. You can change almost any setting without even touching the menu button. Which mean you can control things fast.

It's pretty decent at high ISO's, but doesn't beat Canon on that aspect.

The downpart is that there's no 1st party battery grip available, and the viewfinder is a tad dark.

I have no problem recommending this baby to anyone. Nikon did a killer job for this entry dSLR!
