Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Review

“Excellent light weight walk about lens”

nikon nikkor 18-55

I bought this 18-55 mm VR lens as a backup lens when my Nikon 18-200 VR mm lens was in the shop being repaired under warentee after about 14 month use. I have not been disappointed with this lens and from what I can tell it’s pretty equivalent to the much more expensive Nikon 18-200 mm VR lens over the 18-55 mm range. There are times I’ll take this lens rather than the 18-200 mm lens because it’s much lighter and more compact, while producing the same sharp and colorful images. I know that having VR on a 55 mm lens is less useful than having it on the 18-200 mm lens but there are still times that it will allow me to take photos at 55 mm that I might otherwise not be able to — and the cost increase really isn’t all that great.

This lens is a nice lens to have when one wants to travel light with Nikon DSLR gear.
