Opinion:It's a kit target, so you can't say much: the Af is lightning fast, it's sharp, but I think it suffers from building variability: flare, chromatic aberrations and vignette often at any focal point, but all this corrects itself in post, so no problem, or at least for me. The real problem is that in suboptimal light conditions I find the contrast weak and the colors flat, in short it is not exciting. On the contrary, in situations where you find good light. But it serves to learn, it has a range of classic focals, it is very light, small, lightning, so you always carry it behind you attached to the body! I would still like to match it back to my D5600, although it's now taking mold, replaced by the 35mm f/1.8 Rating 9.
Opinion:Reminding us that it is still the lens from kit by definition, it is ABSOLUTELY MORE THAN VALIDO. Good sharpness and minimal chromatic aberrations, considering the type of lens. With direct light, there's not much lens flare, despite the advice to spend 10 euros and buy yourself a lampshade. The focus is simply phenomenal, quick and silent, especially compared to that of the old 18-55 AF-S.
Opinion:I also read negative reviews about this goal. Which I have to tell you: I'll be lucky, because of the three thousand shots I made him do he didn't patch up practically any. It focused lightning and very quiet, excellent contrast and color, no vignette, no chores and, more importantly, perfect detail. The material used is not plastic but a robust and light polycarbonate with which even formula one machines are manufactured. Bought in kit with the D3500, it frankly surprised me and quite a lot, positively. Only do you have a right then? No: it has no buttons, so for focus and VR you have to use the camera controls. Small annoyance that does not affect the quality of the result. Considering also the price and the weight, my vote can only be 10.
Opinion:Sharp, fast, quiet, ultra light, very effective stabilization. The barrel distortion towards the wide-angle focals are automatically corrected, chromatic aberration (especially towards the edges) to be corrected in PP, flare almost inexistent, the real limit I find in the focal range, too normal, too limiting x my tastes, but these are personal tastes more than real flaws. Pulling the sums, considering the price, has unbeatable quality/price ratio, a best buy in practice. Today, April 2020 I update my review after a long period of use. Very relevant flaw: the white plastic cap to cover the bayonet! removing it and putting it back often scratches (the cap) internally, wearing free of the microscopic particles that go to dirty the sensor (at every lens change I was with the dirty sensor!) I solved it by changing it with the LF-4 cap. I haven't had any problems since.
Pros:Perfect for getting started in a kit with a camera - Lightweight, easy to use and cheap - precise autofocus, good sharpness and
Cons:Pretty present chromatic aberrations - Show its limitations by going slightly out of the box and with professional purposes
Opinion:As an amateur photographer and videomaker I would say that this lens is really fantastic for those who start to enter the world of digital machines. Very light, easy to use and with a good visual rendering. The maximum opening of 5.6 (4.5 only at 18mm) is certainly not suitable for many things and in scarcity of light proves its flaws, however if used in standard situations can come out so many interesting shots. The chromatic aberration is very present; although with retouching software you can eliminate it almost completely, sometimes there are still some flaws in the details. The distortion of the lens, on the other hand, is not annoying and corrects easily. Even for video recording he does very well. VR works well, even if you don't have to overdo it with movements; if we can keep the camera we manage to have fairly stable shots that can be safely adjusted in post-production. The autofocus is not noisy and always remains very precise. The focus dial is very fluid and using the manual focus is always a pleasure; Zoom is a bit stiff, so it's hard to avoid that jerky effect during videos. For the photo side I took close-ups, landscapes, moving photos during sports matches and concerts (some I put them on the juza profile): never had dissatisfaction, except for personal mistakes. Very often I did not feel the need to touch up the photos so much because both the contrast and the vividness of the colors was satisfactory. For the video side, in addition to some sporadic footage, I used it to record a couple of live music inside a club. The videos didn't come bad, however as a lens it is definitely not suitable for this purpose. Quite stable by bare hand, the 60 fps of the D3400 gave that dynamic touch, but the lack of opening made them decidedly dark and a little depreciated when I didn't have the stage lights in favor. Let's say that for simple videos in general you can settle. To date it is not better to buy it separately, but only if included with the machine body because of quality alternatives there are many. However it is a nice lens that allows you to make several nice shots and shots, a great starting point and then move on to something more expensive once you have experienced.
