Amazon.com

Designed exclusively for Nikon DX-format SLR cameras, this 18-55mm lens approximates the picture angle performance of a 27-82.5mm lens in the 35mm format, ensuring superb versatility in a wide variety of shooting situations. The lens offers such features as a Silent Wave Motor (SWM) with a compact rod-type design that provides fast, ultra-quiet autofocusing; an ED glass element that minimizes chromatic aberration and produces a superior optical performance; a hybrid aspherical element that delivers high resolution and contrast; and a seven-blade rounded diaphragm that produces more natural out-of-focus highlights. The focus mode switch, meanwhile, makes it a breeze to switch quickly between autofocus (A) and manual (M) focus. Finally, the lens's Super Integrated Coating minimizes ghosting and flare to provide an even higher contrast and more vivid images, even in challenging light conditions. All Nikon lenses carry a five-year warranty.

We have here the Nikon 18-55mm kit lens that is seemingly designed to do one thing: make you want more. I received mine as part of my kit package with my Nikon D40. It is a decent lens that cuts corners all over to keep price down, and doesn't really do anything great. However, for those first starting out, it's light as a feather, simple to use, and at least for the initial month or so, all you need to get out and start capturing memories.

As expected for the price, it is of relatively low-grade plastic construction, to include the mount (the part at the rear that connects to the camera), however the optics are uncharacteristically sharp. While it is an AF-S lens (focusing element in the lens and not the camera), it doesn't benefit from full-time manual override found on other AF-S lenses (that is, you're able to make manual adjustments after the lens has focused). I'm sure that Nikon did this as a cost-cutting measure. For users of this lens, this shouldn't be an issue as you can always switch over to manual focus anyway via a switch on the lens or camera (save the D40/X which doesn't have an internal focus motor and as such no switch on the camera). However, more experienced users will find the manual focus ring quite distasteful. Also, since the front element rotates, use with a polarizer will be annoying.

With a variable aperture of 3.5-5.6 you can easily get available-light shots for outdoor daylight photos, and well-lit indoor photos without jacking up the iso too high at the wide end, but near the long end, you're going to need to use a flash unless you use a relatively slow shutter speed or high iso setting.

For experienced shooters, don't expect much. For those just starting out with digital SLR photography, it's the best kit lens to use. This lens can really deliver great pictures. Provided you know what you're doing. That simply means understanding how to use aperture, shutter speed, white balance, ISO, and lighting among other things to achieve the best results. That also means you have to minimize using "toink" (auto) mode to learn. Not that the different auto modes don't take great shots. They actually do, except, they don't always come out the way you want them to. I use this along with a D40x body. And most of the time it has helped me take great pictures. I say most of the time only because this lens does have its limits. When you understand this, you should be just fine. For shooting distant objects try the 55-200mm VR lens. For shooting objects in low light conditions try the 50mm f/1.8D lens. In any case, hope this helps.

We purchased the D40 kit just over a year ago. I have been thrilled with the camera and lenses it came with. Until--I was shooting pictures of the kids and the lens locked up for no apparent reason. Turns out the lens is pretty much shot (we think the motor in the lens went bad) so we have no choice but to buy a new one. The Nikor lenses come with a five year guarantee, IF YOU RETURN THE CARD WITHIN 10 DAYS OF PURCHASE. Unfortunately we just realized this so no luck with the warranty. I recommend everyone returning the lens warranty card in case this happens to you. Other than that this has been a great camera.

Excellent utility lens for middle-range shots. This one gets you your event photos, your fashion shots, your décor pictures, your nature shots, your architecture studies. Go for the f/1.4 Nikon AF-S FX NIKKOR 50mm f/1.4G Lens with Auto Focus for Nikon DSLR Cameras for high depth of field portraits or close-ups, or the 200 mm Nikon 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED IF AF-S DX VR [Vibration Reduction] Nikkor Zoom Lens for long-distance nature shots, or the 10 mm Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED Zoom Lens with Auto Focus for Nikon DSLR Cameras for your breathtaking panoramas.

I got this lens as part of a package with a Nikon D40x camera. While the 18-55mm range is a bit short for my taste, I do like using this lens.

Pros:
-very light weight
-reasonably fast auto-focus
-high quality image resolution

Cons:
none

There is a vibration reduction ("VR") version of this lens, but at this focal length I don't miss it.

I'm using this lens with D90 and noticed that the auto-focus fails more often than not. I was surprised with the low quality construction of this lens. I bought this to replace a VR version. My suggestion would be to spend the extra money and buy the VR version.

Edit: After using slightly over a year, auto-focus stopped working completely(It actually locks up, you have to turn forcefully to focus it at this point). I wish I could take away all the stars.

This 18-55 DX lens is one of those things that you run into (almost always serendipitously) and just grin to yourself when you find out how well it performs. I can't be happier with this lens. It's my "go-to" lens for almost every kind of situation. I had thought about getting as dedicated 50mm / 1.4 addition to my lenses but honestly, I cannot see the gain in doing it.

This lens shoots sharply in focus in any mode and will deliver - every time. If there's an issue of any kind, I can easily manipulate it easily with a good editing program (I personally use Nikon's Capture program)such as Photoshop.

Sure, the barrel and mount is plastic, but who cares? I don't plan of bouncing it off the ground or using in in combat. I just use ordinary care and I'm good to go. Don't get hung up on the old "price = better pictures" stuff. This inexpensive lens is every bit as good as it's pricier cousins.
