AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
Great Optics for the buck
Don't be discouraged by this lens just because it's a kit lens, for entry-level camera.
As far as Resolution and Contrast goes... From 18-35mm from the center, to over half way to the edges...this is actually one of Nikons better DX lenses. [Excellent performer] in that range, before it falls off, and even THEN, it's not to shabby.
It won't do you any good once the sun sets. But for the price. I'd buy another one, when mine gives out.
Happy Shooting !!

Grandes recursos com um ótimo custo x benefício
Excelente resolução de imagem, leve e com a versatilidade de ter em uma só lente o zoom de 18-55mm, com baixo custo.

I used to have Canon all my life and thought to give Nikon a chance when I needed DSLR. I bought D5100 with this lens with the deal that saved $50. I hardly used this camera for its first year and when I needed this camera to capture birthday moments of my kids, this camera failed. The lens would simply not move in auto mode. May be the motor system inside the lens failed. The only way it worked was in manual mode. Now Nikon's tech support is another nightmare to deal with due to their limited tech support and servicing locations. Only 2 location (one in east coast and another in west coast) for all repairs and issues!!!
For the price I spent, I simply wished reliable and decent camera with lens to last. Now I am reluctant to buy another lens. May be it will have same fate? Also today's phone camera being so handy and better at pictures and videos who really needs these expensive camera any ways.

Lens failed within 90 days of purchase
Auto-focus suddenly stopped working. I have had this lens less than 90 days. I know the AF-S DX 18-55mm lens is faulty because there are no problems using my Nikkor DX AFS 55-200 with my D3200. Now I have the hassle of filing a warranty claim and shipping the lens.
