Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-105mm f3.5-5.6G DX VR ED lens offers great quality throughout. Designed for general use, it offers everything you would need, all in one lens. The added feature of vibration reduction makes it one of the most useful lenses.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-105mm f3.5-5.6G DX VR ED lens is typical of Nikon’s mid-range zoom lenses. The lens barrel is constructed from high quality plastics that have a textured finish to them that won’t show marks or scratched too easily. The lens feels lightweight, but without compassion slight.
The lens mount is also made of plastic, so care may need to be taken not to damage this while changing lenses. A large rubberized zoom ring fills the front half of the barrel and provides a good grip. The zoom mechanism is smooth throughout, not tightening up at any point in the zoom.
A slim focus ring is provided for manual focus adjustments, which is can be applied at any time due to the inclusion of a Silent Wave Motor. Auto-focus is sensibly quick in good lighting conditions, but slows remarkably when the light levels drop, especially at the longer end of the zoom. Still, for most purposes the performance in this area is more than adequate. Focus is performed internally and the 67mm filter thread does.
Finally at 105mm, there is a further drop off in sharpness, but the centre resolution is still good in the centre a f/5.6 and acceptable towards the edges. At this point the length of the lens needs stopping down to f/11 to achieve peak sharpness across the frame.
