    Cons: Strong Chromatic Abberation visible at wider end (18 mm). Weird filter size, should have been 52 instead of 55 mm.

    Pros: Quite and Fast Focusing. Images are sharper at the longer end. Lightweight, with instant manual focus override. Focusing is accurate.

    Summary: A worthy try for beginners, to understand what focal length is used frequently for shooting photographs. These may help you upgrade this kit lens with a better one.

    Cons: Max aperture Slow, daylight lens) Disposable (no gear fondling) Weird filter size (minor)

    Pros: EXCELLENT optics for daylight shooting; AF-P much better than previous AF-S versions All focal lengths good, esp long Really Quick AF Light weight Compact DIsposable

    Summary: In daylight, I leave the FF rig @home. This is as good or better than a 24-70 at the smaller apertures. This on a D3300 (new, $200) is Nikon\'s best street shooting, walkabout rig. Incredible output from a small, inexpensive package

    Cons: Only 9 P-MPix (DxOMark)

    Pros: I'm using it with Nikon D5300. Good at 24-40mm and f8-f11. Quiet motor. Cheap. For portrets & low light I use AF-S 35mm DX 1.8

    Summary: Best 18-55mm kit lens.

    Cons: F5.6 at 55mm Plastic mount Retract button which is one more step between getting a shot if lens is retracted. Vr turned off and on via menu instead of switch. Limited compatibility.

    Pros: Excellent sharpness at all focal lengths and apertures up to f18 or so, Great contrast and colour saturation, Compact and light, Amazing macro abilities, Amazingly fast and quiet, new auto focus system. Instant manual focus override.

    Summary: At 149 dollars, I simply just had to test this new auto focus technology from Nikon. I am very happy I did. It is very quiet and fast. But still not the answer completely for video work. Although you can't hear it working using the inbuilt mike, The af still hunts too much to be completely effective. But an overall improvement over its predecessor. For still photography, it is a huge improvement over its predecessor. Focusses accurately while being fast and silent. I have been doing macro work with this lens on my D3300 and even when cropping aggressively, the sharpness, clarity and depth of field is simply stunning at this price point.
