Recently my friend broke my 18-55 kit lens (beyond repair), and he's giving me money to replace it ($100).  I am deciding which lens to buy to replace the focal length, and I came across the 18-70.  It costs pretty much the same as the 18-55, but is longer.  If anyone has this lens please talk to me about IQ.  I liked the quality of the 18-55 but I find that I would like the extra reach of the 18-70, and it has a faster max aperture.  I don't really use VR so it's not a problem.   Basically...

The reason I ask is that I was going through Best Buy's black Friday preview sale thing and saw that you get a $50 bonus on any trade in (store credit of course). I went through their website and found that they would offer $48 for a D70 in working condition with the 18-70 lens. That would put the trade in valve at $98. I haven't priced what I could get for my old kit before but a quick look at ebay suggests $98 might not be too bad. What do yall think of getting $98 for those two? I am a...

Hello, I am a research student at NC State working on a project involving ultrasonic motors. I have ordered this SWM motor unit for the 18-70mm lens and having some trouble figuring out how it works. There is a 4 pin ribbon cable connected to the motor ring. After calling Nikon, other camera repair places, and visiting a camera shop I am unable to get the "pin out" for this connector. My question is does anyone know what these 4 pins actually do (ie voltage, ground, control, frequency specs...

Need some help deciding between two lenses. AF-S NIKKOR 18-70mm 1:3.5-4.5G ED AF-S NIKKOR 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6G Mostly I'm using these lenses for sports, skiing, white water kayaking, climbing, that sort of thing. I've got a D7000. The cool thing about the 18-70 mm lens is that it has M/A or M modes whereas the 18-55 is either M or A - no overriding the mode that the lens is on by using the camera focus mode toggle. I like the idea of getting the extra bit of range with the -70 lens, but I'm...

I just can't figure it out; the D5200 has an obvious advantage: the price. Is it worth for an amateur to take the D7000? Reading here on Dp review does not seem so much like it.I can also use some advice on lenses: 18-70 or 18-105 Vr? I already have the 35mm 1.8.Thanks to everyone.

I'm wondering if trading in my 18-55 kit lens that came with my D5100 (which I got in December) for an old 18-70 (I don't want to $460 on a new version that is so much like my 18-55) or new 16-85 is worth it. I really like the versatility that the 16-85 gives me, but don't like the price. I like my 18-55, and would be trading it in to get one of the other lenses if I trade it in at all. Thanks!

I shoot with a new D7000. When using my Nikkor 18-70DX lens on this body the lens does not work properly. It seem to fire from 35mm to 70mm but doesn't fire when set on the wider angle end of the lens. Not at all at 18 and only randomly at the other settings up to about 35. It seems random. I've tried in auto and manual setting and still it malfunctions. Does this sound familiar to anyone? This lens worked well on my old camera body the d70s.
