Great all-purpose lens.

Jerry from Pacific Palisades, CA on 11/15/2016

Excellent all-purpose lens. Very happy with this purchase, and expect this to be the lens I use 95% of the time.

Pros: Broad range, from wide angle to telephoto. Reasonable weight, about 16 oz., given the outstanding.

Cons: None.

Nikon 18-200 DX Lens

HenryF from New York on 4/22/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have a number of full frame Nikon lenses to go with my D800E and 6 DX lenses for my D7100 or my D5500. Of these lenses, I would pick 3 to at the top of my list of superb glass, and one of those would be the 18-200 DX. I just seems to do it all and with that much range, I am amazed at how sharp and fast this lens is. The images are superb and the utility of this lens is great.

Pros: Great Zoom range and no sacrifice in quality of images, even when looked at under high magnification. Especially if you wish to choose just one lens, this would be my pick.

Cons: Slightly more weight, but not a deal breaker in anyway

Nikon 18-200mm lens

Apollo from Charlottesville, VA on 6/12/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is a great all around lens for traveling and outdoor shots in good lighting situations. The lens has an 18mm lock which I like to prevent the lens from creeping. Also it seems to be quite tight when compared to the previous model. This is my go to lens when I am out and about.

Pros: The zoom range offers a wide variety of shots quickly.

Cons: It's a slow lens (as are all wide range zoom lenses) so if you want really sharp photos you will need to use a tripod. Hand holding is pretty good in bright conditions. In overcast the pictures can be pretty soft, but fine for a 5"x 7" print or your ipad. If you plan to display your photos on your big screen TV you will have to work in good lighting conditions.

Finally Got One

mikmax1 from Naperville, Il on 5/28/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I have always wanted this lens, but was not willing to part with the $$. But when it was made available for less than the original price with a new camera, I finally jumped on it. Still putting it thru its paces, but so fare it is excellent for a versatile all-day lens. Unless I am shooting accross a soccer field, I rarely take it off.

Pros: Works very good for both indoors and fairly far away outdoor shots.

Cons: A tad heavy.

Wanted to Love this Lens

ConnieL from Frostburg, MD on 5/12/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I used this lens with the D7100. This lens loved the light. So many of my photos showed the most lovely and beautiful images on my IPAD 3. However, the cropped and printed images were very soft. I was very disappointed in the sharpness of this lens. It was a good weight and size, focused quickly, wonderful walk around lens. If you aren't concerned with sharpness, this could be the lens for you.

Pros: Good saturated color, focuses fast, handles different lighting very well. Easy to handle and not too heavy given the 18-200mm range.

Cons: Too soft. Sharpness poor. Was looking for a versatile lens that would take sharp pictures that cropped and printed well. This is not that lens. The 18-300mm works much better with the 7100.

Haven't had much chance to use this lens as only had for couple of weeks but so far has been great. Thought I would have better close-up capability but can fix that in photo shop. Can't get as close-up as my 10X point & shoot but the quality is much, much better.

Great walk around lens

Ray from New York on 9/2/2011

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is a very nice walk around lens. Gives you the ability to shoot wide angle all the way to 200mm without having to swap out the lens. The performance is good, not a crisp as some other lenses, but for the price and convince of a single else, it's nothing you cannot fix in post. This lens is on my D7000 90% of the time due to how versatile it is. Just a heads up. This is a rather heavy lens weighing in at 19.7oz so the convenience comes at the cost of weight. Also if you are using a D5100 or D3100, the extra 10 oz of weight from the 18-55mm kit lens could feel closer to 20 and make the camera very front heavy due to the lighter body. Just something to consider.

Cons:

Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II

David from Kentucky on 5/22/2011

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This lens is incredible. I have it paired up with the newer Nikon D3100. This does it all. It covers almost all the range that you will ever need plus the picture quality is amazing. Some people may say that it has a few small issues such as lens creep, but overall this lens is well worth your money. I did however buy this particular lens from Nikon's refurbished website ($100 cheaper) but I did buy my camera, filter and bag from Crutchfield. I have to say I am extremely pleased with the customer service that I received and will definitely buy from here again if the need arises.

Replaces two lenses for me

reayx5 from Apple Valley CA USA on 2/7/2011

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Paired this up with a new D90. It is a step-up from my D60. This one lens replaces my 18-55mm & 55-200mm. It is wonderful. I don't miss a shot. I don't have to hassle with carrying an extra lens tethered to my belt. I did have to purchase larger filters, but that is a small price to pay for this convenience. Chris
