  • Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G ED-IF DX AF-S Nikkor

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Price, Value for money
    Distortion in wide

    Pretty good lens, for its price, its cheap, light, nice zoom range, about 28 - 105 on 35 mm equivalent.

    Its a bit soft on open apertures, and a bit soft on corners.

    It vignettes on corners too.

    Recommendable as a pretty cheap all around zoom lens.

  • Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DG Macro APO

    7 out of 10 points and recommended
    low price, nice zoom range, macro
    soft beyond 200 mm, feels a bit cheap, zoom ring feel

    excellent lens for its price, can compete with very expensive tele lenses when shooting up to 200mm.

    small and light and can fit in a pouch.

    soft at 300mm and harder to hold tight but in good lighting its excellent.

    if u dont have the money for an expensive zoom, there is no better alternative among the cheapst.
