    Hello. I Failed 18-55 for Nikon D3200, I began to understand and, alas, only Nikon 18-55mm f / 3.5-5.6G AF-S VR DX Zoom-Nikkor, which are already a rarity, is suitable for it, but is it possible then adapt modern AF-P? I would be grateful for advice on how to get out of this situevina, I live in a small town and on avito we have nothing sensible from the word at all (((

      Well here Voros, of course, interesting. For bokeh, you need either a relatively cheap fix, or a fast aperture zoom, but more expensive (third-party companies do not count). The first one is best to take 50 / 1.8G.

        So I was once advised to take fifty dollars ... for a crop.
        Pavel, don’t listen and take Zoom like Sigma 17-50 / 2.8 or 17-70 / 2.8-4.
        Then, when you get used to it, you will understand which focal point, where and how to use it, which one is more suitable and more pleasant for yourself, only then you will choose. Buying one fix will not solve the problem of choosing focal ones. It is necessary to take several - which one will later choose with experience, i.e. with time. When there is no understanding, then there is no point in bothering with fixes.

      Look at the data on those photos that you like the most. If the photographs are mainly at the focal point 50-55 mm - take fifty dollars. If 30-40 mm - take 35. If there are none, then really what Pokémon advises.

      Fifty krop on a crop is good, why, but for a portrait and only for a portrait. And the room is crowded with him.

        Julia, listing the lenses won't suit you. Best would be a 17-50 sigma zoom 2.8.
        Or from lenses from a fixed focal length - Helios 81H, Mir 24H, Jupiter 37a Nikon bayonet. The larger the focal number, the more you need to move away from the subject.

    Greetings, Arkady!
    I use this lens exclusively as an available width, only 18mm, paired with a 14-megapixel D3100, and the sharpness is not very comfortable, even on a covered aperture. At the same time, at the long end, which I do not need, sharpness is slightly better at almost any aperture value. Is it possible to take something better in terms of sharpness to replace him, but not for the horse's price tag?

      It depends on how much “more”, so much will be the horse price tag. Wide-angle is an expensive pleasure. From cheap-available old Sigma 10-20, Tokina 12-24, Tamron 10-24, Nikon 10-24. You can also try Nikon 16-85 - if you get a good copy - 16mm on the covered one gives a very decent result.

      This is the diameter of the lens cap and thread under the filters, this affects it.
      This is primarily due to the design and size of the lens.

    Thanks for the review. I have such a lens after I fell from the shelf I began to soap in one corner. But bought the same used for only 2000 rubles, for this price just a gift. For landscapes in Crop, what the doctor ordered. And not only landscapes, photos on the trip, when the apertures are quite cool enough, photos at night from a tripod are also very interesting, photos of the interior, architecture. The only minus the aperture, which can be compensated by a tripod and puff. But for portraits of course you need something more serious

    All the supplied (kit) lenses are good.
    And the fact that they are bad - the wiring paid by the plant, so that your uncle took more money from you.

    You can also see on all photo sites - admins specially hang the darkest and worst photos for inexpensive glass, and the most successful bright and light ones for any expensive dregs for 80tr.

    Go to any site of photographers, not “reviewers-advertisers”, choose an average price for a carcass - and you will find millions of SUPER successful and cool photos taken with complete (kit) lenses that hammer all these glasses for over 80k in the ass.

    I had 10 glasses of different prices - for the sake of interest I rented, changed, bought, etc.
    He sold everything except Keith - Keith tears L-ki for 80k, there is no other need for them, if you do not take pictures for money and mostly in the dark, or show off in front of clients to sell better again.

    The whole difference is always in the carcass and the photographer.

        Um ... And constructive. And the focusing speed is quite often (USM is better than STM and especially this creepy buzzer ... ArcDrive?) And edge sharpness. And sharpness in general. And bokeh quality. And chromatic aberration.

        In most cases, more expensive speech is better. Not the fact that a multiple is better than price increases, but better. If this improvement is significant for you and you are ready to pay for it.

        It depends on what tasks. You may not take a portrait. But as a lens for travel, landscapes justifies itself. It is no coincidence, by the way, it is with the purchase of an amateur camera that they complete a set. It's like learning from a simple front-wheel drive car. It is always better to learn from something simple, first gamma. Without having worked with less universal technology, how to feel all the advantages of expensive?

        I'd like to recommend it as an additional zoom for trips. He is, in fact, quite sharp.
        A slight blur with it (not on facial portraits, of course, for nature and colors, objects) can be achieved by reducing the focus distance, as can be seen from the gallery in this review.

        Just recently recalled the first trip with him. It is a pity that the photos were not preserved in the original resolution. I didn’t understand the dangers of overestimated ISO, and the photos could have come out noisy, and there were problems with the composition and the horizon. But overall, give an idea

        On Sonya I shot with a whale, when I didn't even know that the lens was detaching from the camera.)) I clicked for a couple of years, then I found out about GLASSES ... I bought Minolt and Sonek, changed them like gloves, sold, bought ... And then somehow I looked in to see my photos from old travels and was amazed at the quality of the glass, which was “whale”. Then I tried the 18-55 kit a couple more times, but it was not the same. All the same. there is a variation in quality. The first whale was a mastef. So you can and should shoot a whale if it is perfectly assembled. And whale 18-135 on Sonya's crop in general (according to my observations) in the center of the frame tore the fixes, no one on the forum believed it.) By the way, the other day I again compared it with a fix, the difference is 100% wildest. Not tore, of course, but also almost as sharp. So much for the whale.

      Depending on what is considered “perceptible,” the concept of perceptible backlash is different for everyone.

      And everyone has a backlash, simply by virtue of the design.

    Hello. Guys have such a lens in a state of almost new. The problem is that autofocus does not tighten to infinity by about 2-3 degrees. When switching to manual focus, it is freely, effortlessly screwed up to the end. Especially pronounced at 18mm, hence at all focal points past. There is no point in carrying it to the workshop, they will be robbed, it is not worth it. Dismantled, looked at the UZM and the gearbox, they look brand new and clean. I thought about disassembling it from the side of the tube, but changed my mind, since there is no tangible backlash, and in manual focus everything rotates freely. Can you give me an idea, I will be grateful.

    Arkady, this particular version of the 18-55 lens, according to Dxomark, has zero distortion with 35 mm and 55 mm each. This can also be added to the pros. There are a bunch of more expensive zooms that do not have such a feature.
