An impressive performance at 35mm, where sharpness is high across much of the frame at F8, contrasts with a rather less desirable set of results at 55mm. Other changes include a modest increase in size, with about 3mm added to the diameter and 6mm to the length, and a 60g increase in weight. If versatility is the most critical issue and you do not want to invest in a telephoto zoom lens, the 18-140mm is also a good option. VR is mounted on the camera, vibration reduction can be enabled or disabled using the Optical VR option in the shooting menu ( 0 Optical VR).

Other brands are softer, and no other 18-55mm offers autofocus anywhere near this fast or has instant manual-focus override. Nikon's "P" series of NIKKOR lenses use a pulse motor (utilizing stepping motors) to focus smoother and quieter than previous drive systems.Two Aspherical lens elements achieve superior optical performance, giving your photos and videos rich, vibrant colors, deep contrast, minimal distortion and beautiful soft backgrounds, even in less than ideal conditions. Then barely a year later, the company announced a wholly new version, this time equipped with a vibration reduction (VR) unit to combat camera shake; a lens which has now been confirmed as the standard companion to the D60 SLR. Check if you have the latest camera firmware installed, as Nikon promised to include this feature in compatible bodies. Thom Hogan praised its value and optical performance, but criticized its handling, noting a diminutive focus ring that rotates during focusing, with no manual override.

While “only” 4 different versions are sold at the time being, you may still easily encounter older versions on the grey market. Please note that although this lens is brand spanking new, it may be supplied without the usual packaging. The wind is blowing, so of course the tops of the palm trees and other plants aren't sharp in this half-minute time-exposure.Apochromatic lenses have special lens elements (aspheric, extra-low dispersion etc) to minimize the problem, hence they usually cost more. DPReview readers have spoken: after two rounds of voting, it's time to announce the winner of our 2023 Reader's Choice Product of the Year award, along with a couple of honorable mentions. It doesn't cost you anything extra when you use these links, but it does support the site, helping keep ePHOTOzine free to use, thank you. Build quality is typical of Nikon kit lenses bundled with their entry level cameras, with high quality plastics being used for all of the construction, including the lens bayonet.

There is a noticeable improvement compared to the AF-S VR II (2014) version, which displayed strong chromatic aberration. When the camera is off or the standby timer has expired, the focus ring cannot be used to focus and rotating the zoom ring will change the focus position; before focusing, turn the camera on or press the shutter-release button to reactivate the standby timer. Very good and even performance across the focal lengths, in any part of the frame, and at all aperture values is an excellent advantage of this lens.

Barrel distortion remains absent from 35mm until 55mm, where it turns to slight pincushion distortion. On the other hand, I was shooting with it for two weeks in the Canary Islands and Oman (including in deserts), and I did not observe any dust/sand getting into the lens. It is more than capable of delivering sharp images, and the compact, lightweight design will make it a perfect travel companion.

In some very subtle ways its optics can outperform the more expensive 16-85mm VR and 18-200mm VR lenses.It's super-sharp, and can give images as good or better than the more expensive 16-85mm and 18-200mm lenses. Is the extra optical oomph worth the upgrade over the iPhone 15 Pro’s 3x (77mm equivalent) telephoto? It is an excellent feature in case you are shooting under challenging conditions, and the lens is hunting. As always, our studio tests are backed up by taking hundreds of photographs with the lens across a range of subjects, and examining them in detail. Anything that isn’t as you would expect, we then make a note of and show this in the condition notes on the page.
