Philly's reviews

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

    7 out of 10 points and recommended
    Flexible, easy to use, great everyday lens
    Vignetting, especially with filter

    It is a pretty good lens, and I've read some other reviews that corroborate mine: pretty good everyday lens. I especially like how it renders colors. But vignetting gets pretty bad, especially when using a polarisation filter in sunny conditions. It's as if the edges are somehow shaded, the difference is that big.

  • Nikon 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED VR AF-S Nikkor

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Big range, sharp
    a little heavy, but that's logical...

    Have had this lens for a little while now, but I was really impressed with its performance. Very sharp images, and with VR actually quite fast. Neutral colours, no real vignetting and as far as I can tell no CA either. Excellent lens, and surprisingly cheap.
