    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice lens, very versatile, good image quality I picked up this lens yesterday and immediately took it out to a nature park to see what it would do on my D500. Since it's supposed to be very versatile, I just searched for somewhat interesting subjects, set up the shot, and took it. I used no tripod because I wanted to see how well the VR would work. Here are a couple shots from my outing - both are cropped, with the bumblebee being a pretty severe crop. I was satisfied with the results, and felt the sharpness was actually better than expected. I'll be using this one a lot and recommend it for general shooting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sharp, lightweight and versatile lens! I replaced my 18-300mm model 2196 with this lens for one reason...weight! Although the specs of the older lens were slightly better with more glass and a littler wider aperture, this one takes excellent pictures. Plus, it can be carried around all day. Before I purchased it and sold the other, I looked at Ken Rockwell's review and he stated that it was just as good. So far, I would have to say that he is right. This lens is about as lightweight as the 18-200mm so I would definitely recommend going with this for your wide angle telephoto all-in-one carry lens. It takes excellent vibrant photos outdoors and indoors. Does fairly well for concerts and events. My favorite lens so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Results in a Small Package I bought this lens for an upcoming 19 day trip to India and Nepal. I have the larger f/3.5-5.6 version of this DX lens, but size and weight are a big factor when traveling for a long time on a rigorous journey. I tested the lens today and it didn't disappoint. I walked around for five hours today with this lens and a Nikon D500 camera body around my neck and I experienced no fatigue. Below are six images I took with this lens today.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never leaves the camera "I've had this for 2 years now and it almost never comes off my D7000. Heavy, yes, perfect, no, but..... Full range and awesome zoom, great vibration reduction, reasonable F range. I've done multiple travel trips and even though I hesitate every time at the size and weight, it stays on the camera. Everything from landscape to hummingbirds in flight. Great for the $"

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb All-in-one lens! Roughly the same size of 18-140mm (@18mm) kit lens, This great COMPACT lens is must have for traveling, I had so much fun with this huge zoom range. Now I want to go even further and buy the new 200-500mm lens, 200-500mm lens gives crazy 300-750mm zoom on my D5500 camera! With these two lenses on DX camera you have astounding 18 to 750mm zoom range, combine with 24MP sensor and high ISO performance (almost noise-free at ISO 3200) and you'll get impressive photography experience with this great system. I shifted to Nikon two years ago and I'm very satisfied, Nikon engineers are doing great!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent I am thoroughly enjoying this lense. Many times I am carrying both my 24-70mm and 70-300mm in my bag. Amongst other equipment. This lense lightens the should load. I was surprised of the accuracy and speed of this lense. Pretty sharp too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp and light weight. A perfect travel lens. Not as sharp as a prime lens, but good throughout the range. Great for closeups with its 18" minimum focus range. Fast focusing in good light, slower in low light. Small size and light weight are great for all day use. This lens rarely leaves my D7000 (now updated to a D7200).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice. Love it. "It is not a perfect lens, but it is a perfect solution for an imperfect problem. If you want a ""do it all"" lens for a Nikon body, then this is it. Used it for 3 weeks in the Middle East, just a week after receiving it from Henry's. I have it on a D7100. It performed very, very well. I found the focus was very good, better than my Sony. Colour issues were not bad at all on the long end, but some should be expected with an ""all in one lens"" of this range. On the short end, it does a great job, even in the dark. Also got some nice ""Macro"" shots using the zoom to an advantage. Just take your time to get a proper focus. Remember to breathe. ha ha"

    How does image sharpness compare on the long end compared to nikon 70-300mm

    Asked by: carson81
    HI Carson81, you'll find the sharpness with zoom lenses to be roughly the same.
