    "Love it....Best one...The 18mm wide angle gives you the option for sweeping panoramas, and the 200mm zoom (especially when combined with the ability of the Nikon D7100 to do a 1.3x crop, making the effective range over 250mm) is a very nice telephoto to have....The Nikon 18-200mm lens is a little pricey but it is a very good lens with a very powerful zoom with sharp results and a wide perspective."

    "NOT BAD...love it...Great wide angle lens in that price ( I bought it at $50 under a offer), so it works great for me...only downside is it doesn't have image stabilization in it...This is a good zoom for beggining.Good image quality in outdoors.Best if used with a tripod or monopod.There is no image stablizer so the futher you zoom the steadier the camera has to be.On the plus side with it being an EF lens you can buy an inexpensive teleconverter and double your zoom.All in all a good lens for being part of a package."

    "5 stars...good len...If you compared this to the 5 or 600 nikon prime which is almost the cost of a car this lens isn't as sharp, but it's 1399 not 13000.00... Buy it you will be happy with it The only reason it got 4 starts is from the weight and the inability to use the 5.6 on a crop body and I have had 2 copies and it'sn't a defective lens...do your research on this lens....I will say it's HEAVY, but most of the time I shoot off a monopod, which I recommend for any duration shooting (sports)."

    "Nice lens...Love Canon...Kinda pricy but worth it would be a excellent lens for side line sports shooters who have early evening games or late morning/early evening wild life shooters on a crop sensor body because as long as you keep the zoom range in the f4 aperature you'll still be able to keep a decent enough shutter speed for moving objects and it gives you the 1.6 magnification so your range will be better than that on a full frame....Living out west a zoom lens is a must have and this one is a perfect choice."
