Advanced technologies for better photos

Despite its affordable price and compact size, the AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II offers some of the advanced Nikon technologies of more expensive lenses. Nikon’s Super Integrated Coating provides higher contrast and more vivid images while minimizing ghosting and flare. An Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass element minimizes chromatic aberration for superior optical performance.

After 3 years, Excellent Results Three years after I received this lens in a D3100 kit it continues to perform very well. It is a general workhorse I use for hundreds of web portraits, small product shoots, 16x20 inch wall portraits and artistic images. May 27, 2013
Best for its price I love this lens! It came with my D3100 Camera, and it is great for general shooting. I've heard complaints about the Macro and low-light conditions, but it isn't for those purposes first of all, but I think they are pretty stinking good for the price. It is a great lens for beginners, like me. July 10, 2012
Extremely good lens I have taken many pictures and know the value of the lens in picture quality. In my opinion this has provided the quality picture I'm looking for. December 25, 2011
Great lens!! My 18-55 came as part of my D40 kit. I must've gotten a fantastic copy of the lens b/c I've never had issued with this lens when used within its range. Of course I have trouble w/autofocus when in low light. It's not a meant for extremely low light. It IS however an amazingly fast lens that takes crisp, clear pictures. I've grabbed awesome September 9, 2011
So far, So good.. I have only had it for a couple days, but so far i have enjoyed it. I can use both manual and auto focus to get good pictures. Auto focus can be a little slow, but otherwise a nice product. April 24, 2011

Answer: 
This is normal for this lens. This lens has a retractable lens barrel button, indicated with an "L" that is used to lock and unlock the lens. When using the lens you must first press the button and rotate the lens zoom ring to unlock the lens. When you are finished using the lens, press the retractable lens barrel button and rotate the ring in the opposite direction to fully retract the lens and lock it in place.

Answer: 
The A is for Aperture Priority, this mode allows you to manually select the aperture using the command dial (Search command dial on Nikon's website for details). The shutter speed will automatically be selected for you in this mode. The M mode is Manual Mode. In this mode, you manually select both the Aperture and the Shutter speed. If your just getting started with photography, I recommend using the P for Program mode. In this mode, the aperture and shutter speed is automatically selected for you but gives you the ability to tweek exposures, metering and so forth. Start there and gain a solid understanding of how the camera selects the aperture and shutter speed. Purchase a D3100 Guide book from a local or online bookstore and learn the camera from there.

Answer: 
The DX 18-55 zoom has a wide angle, Normal, and Telephoto angle of view. It's angle of view is equivalent to 27- 82.5mm( FX or 35mm standard format) and therefore it qualifies as a wide angle, Normal, and telephoto lens but not by much. Is not a dedicated wide angle lens.

At the very end of this lens is a ring sticking out about 1/4" from the lens barrel. When you turn the 18mm to 55mm ring this end piece moves in and out depending on the setting. My question is if I hold this end piece all by itself and turn it clockwise until it stops (there is a click stop) it moves out about 1/4". If I then then it counterclockwise it rotates back in about a 1/4" to a click stop. Which position is used for normal shooting? This is the non-VR version of the 18-55mm AF-S lens and I am using it on a D3000 camera. Why does this end piece turn at all?

Thanks.

Answer: 
The ring you are talking about is the lens focusing ring. When you rotate the zoom ring, the focus ring and the lens internal parts moves. When you press the shutter button halfway down to focus, the focus ring will move into an appropriate position to obtain focus. If you move the switch on the lens to M, you will need to manually obtain focus by rotating the lens focus ring. Please do not rotate the lens focus ring while the switch on the lens is set to A.

Answer: 
The ultra-compact and lightweight AF-S DX Zoom-NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II covers the most frequently used focal length range of 18–55mm. This makes it a great choice for a wide variety of shooting situations, from portraits to landscapes to HD video recording. The AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G’s maximum aperture is f/1.8, which provides complete depth-of-field control for isolating your subject and creating stunning portraits. An f/1.8 maximum aperture isn’t just for creating blurred backgrounds—it’s also the key to exceptional low-light performance. With the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G, you’ll be able to shoot in more situations with only the available light—indoors or out, from morning until night. Sample images and the MTF chart for the AF-S DX NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G can be found on the product page of the lens.

Answer: 
At that focal length you should have no problems unless you are shooting with a very slow shutter speed.

Answer: 
Yes but it will be in DX crop mode so you will lose resolution which defeats the object of buying a D800

Answer: 
Controlling aperture and shutter speed are the keys. Aperture is the size of the lens opening; you want large apertures to let in as much light as possible. Shutter speed will control how long the shutter stays open; the longer it's open, the more light will reach the sensor. Also, setting higher ISO speeds will increase the "light gathering" ability of the camera's sensor. If you're using a VR (vibration reduction) lens, activate the VR. But if you're using a tripod—which is a great idea for night shots, as it will stabilize the camera during long exposures—be sure VR is turned off.
