Versatile, high-power 7.5x zoom NIKKOR lens approximates the picture angle performance of a 28-200mm lens on 35mm SLR.

Internal Focus provides fast and quiet auto focusing without changing the length of the lens, retaining subject-working distance through the focus range.

Non-rotating front element provides for convenient use of circular polarizing filters and the Nikon wireless close-up Speedlight system.

A seven-blade rounded diaphragm opening, out-of-focus elements appear more natural.

optimized for use with DX-format

A Nikon Extra-Low Dispersion (ED) glass element delivers superior optical performance. ED glass minimizes chromatic aberrations, contributing to superb contrast and resolution performance.

Focus as close as 1.47 ft throughout entire zoom range.

A Compact Silent Wave Motor (SWM) enables fast and quiet auto focusing, along with quick switching between auto focus and manual operation(M/A and M).

67mm filter attachment size.

Great every day lens. This lens has the range for most regular shooting. Some pincushioning but good colors, sharpness, and a nice bokeh. April 16, 2011
Good old standby Sharp focus, good detail, and low distortion have made this my everyday lens for year. I've had this lens for 4 years and have never really had a problem with it. April 15, 2011
Great lens unfortunately discontinued My husband bought me a D40 for Christmas a couple of years ago and he was very insistent about having spent fair amount extra to upgrade from the standard 18-55mm lens, which he said "the less I say the better." The only flaw in my 18-135mm lens is that it doesn't have Vibration Reduction. We hoped that a VR version would be introduced, but the VR replacement is only 18-105mm, and I really like having the extra reach of the 135mm. This was the perfect lens for somebody who couldn't quite justify spending double for the wonderful 18-200mm, though maybe my hubby will hand his down to me? I LOVE MY NIKON! April 14, 2011
Bang for the Buck I chose this lens because I am a poor individual who can't afford a bag full of lenses. I have it on a D80. This lens has been perfect for close and long shots without having to keep changing lens, which I cannot afford anyway. Its has met all my needs and wants. I recommend it for the money challenged photographer who shoots a wide range of subjects. April 14, 2011
Versatile Lens As an amateur/hobbyist photographer I've found this lens to be the perfect option for me. I have used it for over two years with my Nikon D80 and have never been inclined to purchase another. It's range is great for various situations and it let's me work on the fly without having to stop and switch lenses periodically or carry others around with me. I recommend it for anyone looking to get a nice camera for fun or casual shooting who doesn't want to break the bank on a different lens for every situation. April 14, 2011

Answer: 
Yes, you can use that lens but it will change the MP of the camera and the lens will also be 1.5 focal factor as with the D80. Using that lens changes the D700 to a 1.5 focal factor. It also changes from 12.1 to 5 MP approximately. The photos will still be excellent but you need to make sure that's what you want from the D700. You would be better off getting the 24-120 f/4 or the 28-300 f/3.5-5.6. Both excellent lenses but I think the 24-120 is better because of it's fixed f.

Answer: 
Yes, you can use this lens with your camera. Just keep in mind the D700 is a FX (Full Frame) and the lens is DX.

I would like to get my boyfriend a lens maybe a little "better" than this? or maybe a nice lens to compliment this one? I know absolutely nothing about cameras and/or lenses so any suggestions will help! He's got a Nikon D200.

P.S. Something under $600 would be preferred.

Answer: 
Don't worry about it, dust inside a lens is normal.
The lens breathes as you zoom in and out and dust gets sucked into the lens. If it really bothers you, you will have to send it to Nikon to be cleaned, it's not something you can do yourself.
Again, it us nit something to worry about.
