"Excellent Camera Lens for our Nikon Camera"
I cannot believe we ordered this on Sat 3rd June and it arrived Sunday 4th June. This is a birthday present for my husband and he is delighted with it. The sizes of the zoom will now prevent him from keep having to swap his other 2 lenses. Very good product and a very good price - well recommended.
"Highly recommended, great VFM."
Next day delivery which is very convenient. Another excellent quality product from Nikon at under £200. Covers a wide range of focal length lenses with relatively fast maximum aperture. It's not a fast prime focal length lens but that said the quality of the photos are very good. The lack of a fast maximum aperture can be overcome by using a tripod or increasing ISO values. Overall a worthwhile purchase!!
I have been using the Tamron version which I found to be excellent. This is just that little bit better! Nikon products are excellent and this is no different. Well made, sturdy feel and - excellent pictures. A series of lenses in one.
This lens is quite brilliant. I have purchased this lens to use as a standard zoom for my D7100. The balance is very good on this combination and not too heavy to carry around all day. The optical results are very good with the image stabilisation most welcome, especially at the long end of the zoom. From the short time that I have had to use this lens I am glad that I have chosen this size over the shorter standard zoom.
I was looking for a cheap hood for my camera as I don't use it all the time and this one fits perfect. I was expecting it to be a little bigger, but it still looks good. I haven't actually used it for photography yet but I will update once I do.
So impressed. It's so cheap but great quality and does the trick for an ammature like me. The only thing I'd say not as a negative but as a tip - you do have to get very close to whatever you are photographing and you really do need to set your camera to manual focus. Otherwise my camera just couldn't manage to focus on it. I'm still playing with it and need to try it out some more but I'm very impressed. Thanks
"Bokehlicious lens with a macro feature"
I did a lot of research before buying this lens, my primary consideration was the 35 mm f1.8. However decided to go for this lens after reading several good reviews on different websites and forums.
As a beginner photographer; I wanted to try a little bit of Macro Photography too. This is an excellent value for money, versatile lens which gives you excellent results, I haven't taken it off from my camera since I got it (I bought it from Jessops not from Amazon).. Really popping images with corner to corner sharpness and good for not-so-close-macrophotography too..
It is also very good for those close up portraits and normal street photography (I got some awesome shots with this lens)..
If you are a beginner looking forward to buy a prime lens go for this one instead of the 35mm 1.8 or 50mm 1.8 and buy this one.. ... full review
Ordered lens hood for my Nikon 55-200 VR lens. Although not for VR lens fitted nicely as the petal hood is more aesthetic than the hood that came with lens. Arrived quickly and excellent price. Would use supplier again.
Having bought this to complement my last DX dslr I am staggered by the quality of its performance. It's a moderate standard zoom by specification but I feel it to be at least as sharp as my fx D610 equivalent 24-85. It is also much smaller and compact on my D7100 and focusses really close. Okay, so it's not as strongly made as the 24-85 but is much more convenient to carry around. I am an ex-pro industrial and PR photographer and can truly say it is one of the best lenses I have ever used. It has a plastic mount of course, so don't bang it around. But then you shouldn't be doing that anyway. I have used Zeiss, Schneider, Nikon, Leica and Minolta lenses in my career, and Sony ones on other cameras (A6000) in retirement. This is not put to shame by any of these and is ... full review
