    Rated 4.2 out of 5★ by 156reviewers.
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by It is a good lens i usually take it to camps and take and other placesthats petty much it its a good lens to start off with. 11/30/2011
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by The plastic mount on this lens makes it worthless. The plastic mount which is the most stressful point on any lens is worthless due to this fragileand weak link. 12/12/2011
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by "ehh" pretty much sums up this lens Recently I gave away all my canon stuff, and received the nikon d7000 as a gift & it came with this lens. Its alright, the word "ehh" pretty much sums up the performance. I just got the lens yesterday and im somewhat impressed but there are some things that annoy me so far. For example, the changing aperture from 18-105. At 105 the aperture is at 5.6 which does not let in much light. and also when you zoom in and out you have to change your exposure. If nikon could make this a 2.8 through out the zoom range it would be an amazing lens. 12/26/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by A true allrounder It's a true day to day use lens for portrait, travel, close up work. 01/10/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Awesome Lens Awesome lens, works perfect for every occasion, great lens for a great price 03/21/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great all around lens Ease of use: it is well balanced on a D5100 - it is far from that front heavy feeling that deteriorates mirrorless APS-C cameras. I love the focus ring... but it could be a bit more wide. It weighs just as much, that it is comfortable for a walk. Zoom rings and tubes are OK, no creeping, and turning smoothly. Plastic bayonet?? I can't state anything about it, because I use it since less than two weeks. I have read many users stating it is strong enough, but I will handle with care.Sharpness: excellent at the center, and no dramatic drop towards the edges. Great color rendering.Distortion: really exists, and somewhat pronounced. Sometimes ADC is a Must.Vignetting: pronounced with max. aperture at the wide and long end - stopping down by 2/3-1 stop helps much. But in some situations you have to live with it.Macro: it is not really intended for macro, but makes nice pictures of flowers.Out of focus blur: I love it at 105mm - but obviously, there are far more powerful bokeh-makers.VR: helps much. At wide end, even 1/2.5s handheld is possible with appropriate shooting technique.Focus speed: not a speed demon, but fast enough in most of the situations.Zoom reach: usually you won't need more at the tele end, but if you shoot wildlife (butterflies, birds, mammals etc.), a 70-300 VR tele will improve the situation much. Wide is nice, but nothing more than standard.Final words: bearable compromises, great performance for price. 04/04/2012
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good, maybe not great. I purchased the DX 18-105mm to pair with a Nikon D7000 as a "first step" in replacing a stolen kit. As an "if I only had one lens on a budget" it performed very well. Travel "snap shots" were clear and with little distortion across the 18-105mm range. It was a touch slow at times and didn't handle low-light levels as well as I had hoped but was certainly adequate when paired with a flash or a tripod.The zoom 18-105mm range provided a lot of flexibility in composition which more than offset the speed of the lens. F/3.5 is on par with other Nikon lenses with this range and at this price point.This lens did not stand up to hard knocks and an unintended "drop test" after a hard trip through Death Valley, but to be fair I'm not sure what would. The plastic mounting might count against it here.Although I'm replacing it with an expanded kit #including both the Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 and the AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8 - which I recommend#. I would recommend this lens if you were starting out on a budget and wanted one lens to do a good job across a fairly wide range. 04/06/2012
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by QUALIDADE QUE SURPREENDEU. Uma lente extremamente versátil rápida, silenciosa perfeita para diversos motivos, uma resposta muito boa para locais de extrema luminosidade. 04/22/2012
