  • The Nikon 18-105mm ƒ/3.5-5.6 definitely raises the bar for Nikon's current lineup of kit lenses; consistently sharp, even at large apertures, with good resistance to chromatic aberration. Corner shading is prevalent, but it's not a noticeable problem. Dis...

  • Useful 'walkabout' zoom range, Decent optical performer, Very good value, VR performs well, Lightweight, Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR:
  • AF noticeably slower at telephoto end of the zoom, CA at 105mm and apertures below f/11
  • In most cases, budget zooms and kit lenses aren't all that exciting in terms of specification and performance. In this case the 18-105mm surprised me at the quality achievable, especially at 18mm and at optimum apertures throughout the range.Those who don...
