“Don’t Waste Your Time – GET THIS LENS!”

nikon nikkor 18-55

I bought this to replace my standard Nikon 18-55mm “non-VR” and will never look back. Getting great pictures is already challenging enough without trying to hold the camera like a statue. If you often enjoy shooting without lugging a tripod all the time or constantly firing your flash, this lens makes a huge difference in your photos.

It is a shame when you get a fantastic capture and your subject lacks that “tack sharp” appearance. After shooting with the non-VR version of this lens, I was often disappointed with available-light shots on some impromptu photos. You know how it goes – “grab the camera quick before you miss out on that (insert subject here)!” Perhaps you make it in time and shoot several frames, but “whoops!” – In all the excitement you didn’t get one shot that makes the grade in sharpness. This is where the VR feature on this relatively excellent lens is a LIFE SAVER!

In final, I will say that the build quality feels noticeably better than the non-VR 18-55mm Nikkor. The zoom ring has noticeably smoother movement. The image quality is easily just as good if not better – very sharp. Just like the non-VR version, the lens mount is plastic, however for such a lightweight lens at this price, this is no deal breaker to me. For under $200, you get performance and image quality that equates with competing lenses twice the price.
