Is my Nikkor 10-30mm defective?

Re: Probably Not

I have the same lens and it is the same with mine. This is pretty typical with the standard kit zooms at wide angle. Even the MTF chart Nikon posted with the lens showed it being soft in the corners. The 11-27 zoom is a stronger performer if you can live with the narrower range and no VR.

I have used many kit zooms from various companies over the years and trust me, this one is not that bad.
