  • Nikon 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR DX AF-S Nikkor

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Excellent sharpness, value, general versatility
    Distortion a little strong, Vignetting visible at widest aperture at 18mm, though not terribly apparent on the field.

    If you can get around the len's somewhat pronounced distortion at the wide end, it is definitely a step above all other "kit lens" until your budget allows for a much more expensive f/2.8 standard zoom.
