After borrowing a friend D90 a bunch of times, i knew i wanted my own. After checking out a local camera shop I was torn between the D90 and D5100. I did a lot of research and decided on the D5100 as my camera. I really liked the D90 everytime i used it, but now after using the D5100 i would never look back. Its easy to use, has a ton of cool features, and the swivel screen LCD display comes in handy more times than you'd ever imagine.

Since the lens came with my D300 back in June 2010 I have owned it and used it as my primary lens. It is a great action lens, as well as a portrait lens. Just very good over all. So why do I give it lover marks? Becuase after the first year of usig it it started to have "Lens Creep" meaning if I was pointing up or down (other than level) it would start zooming on its own. I checked with other professionals with nikon equipment to only hear the same thing and that Nikon would not fix it as a defect. So I have a wide black rubber band around the barrel to hold the zoom in place. Also when I zoom it all the way to 200mm it now goes out of focus. So it is now a lens with limited uses for me. I have had to purchase other lens to replace it as a daily use lens. I'm still a die-hard Nikon user, have been for over 40 years. Just not happy with this lens.

Comments about Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f 3.5-5.6G ED VR II Compact Ultra-High Ratio Zoom Lens:
This is my favorite lens, I am considering buying the Nikon 24-120mm because of the nano crystal. I use this lens for almost everything. I took it with me to Costa Rica, I got some amazing images.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Quality of photos taken with this lens are excellent. Also has powerful Zoom. This is an all purpose single lens that reduces the hassle of changing lenses according to the situation.
I love it,,,,, it's easy to use

Versatility in a Tube
I bought a D3300 DSLR, and while I found the 18-55mm kit lens to be great in its own respect, I needed to get some glass which would be a bit more versatile for what I typically shoot, which is our beautiful mountains of Northern California. The 18-200mm has a great range of zoom, and will be perfect for vacation shots, and flora/fauna images. I also purchased a 35mm-f1.8 for indoor and low light applications. Between the three lens choices, I pretty much have all my bases covered. Also, the D3300 takes some VERY sharp 24mp images, especially with the 35mm lens.
I found a easy solution that has worked for years. I took a 2'' elastic strip found at a sewing counter and made a band around the lens, just snug enough to allow manual turning, but will not let the lens creep. Easily removed, but I keep it on all of the time. It is black so it is barely noticeable Good luck.

covers my zoom needs
heavier than expected, but, really does the job. i am very pleased with the quality of pix across all ranges
Do-able. I guess, it gets the job done.
Takes very good pictures compare to some higher end models of other brands. Video quality is a BIG NO NO. The video quality is too choppy and not very smooth when compared to other brand. Not recommending this camera because there are two newer model.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

In my small experience regarding the photography I recommend Nikon is the best because itâ€™s a user friendly compact and professional with high quality picture.
