    "I love this lens...The lens is good...I think this is a very good lens in the 16mm to 24mm range on my a7Rll not so much on the 35mm end but that is not what I got it for...If this lens is a 2.8, it would get 5 stars for sure, F/4 seems a little dated especially at such a high price point"

    "What a great buy...Very easy to use...If used with an APS-C sensor, the zoom on this lens is an effective 80mm, making it adequate for many macro shots, but also functional enough for most portraits, although for the latter, I would prefer a 40mm lens (although the 40mm lens isn't as wide of an aperture at f/2.8 so I would not recommend it over the 50mm if you can only buy one)...This kit comes with the 50mm 1.8 prime lens, known for being a quality affordable lens for beginners in photography, and the 10-18mm wide angle telephoto lens which is very nice for wide angle shots and video"

    "I love this lens...Best in its class...I planned to go to Fairbanks last september to photograph the Auroras Borealis, and I had to get the best Len for my Nikon D 610, so after to ask my very good specialist photographer friend I decided to go for the Nikon 12-24 f2.8, I got great pictures, and I brought to Mexico, very good memories...So far the lack of an easy filter system has not been a bother since I look for dark skies so I don't need to use deep sky filters and haven't did any daytime landscape images that could benefit in a polarizing filter but I believe there are a few options though a little pricey but still a workable solution"
