Thom's Mini Review: A disappointment. Yes, it's small, and it does make for a very pocketable camera, when mounted on the S or J series. It also seems slightly wider than the 10-30mm kit lens, and it is a half-stop faster. Optically it doesn't quite match the very good 10-30mm kit lens. Visible barrel distortion is present. Needs a lens hood; the best option for that would be to get a 40.5-to-52mm step up ring and any one of a number of screw in 52mm hoods, including Nikon's own low cost HN-3. Now that we've seen other primes from Nikon, the 10mm just isn't optically in the same league and we really hope Nikon will revise this lens.
