This a comment for this page on the website
Is there any specific reason why the standard 18-105 is still not listed anywhere in these recommended D7100 lens lists ?

It's not in:
Best Standard zoom models for the D7100
http://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/Best-lenses-for-the-24M-Pix-Nikon-D7100-Best-standard-and-portrait-primes-and-zooms/Best-Standard-zoom-models-for-the-D7100

Neither under:
Best Zoom models for the D7100
http://www.dxomark.com/Reviews/Best-lenses-for-the-24M-Pix-Nikon-D7100-Part-I/Best-Zoom-models-for-the-D7100

I mean it's been tested on the D7100 a long while ago, I can review the results separately and by comparison it beats a bunch of lenses that are otherwise in the lists. In fact it seems almost a tie with the previously top of the list 18-135 and the new top of the list 18-140.

Is there just something wrong with the 18-105 on D7100 ? (I doubt it) I've noticed a similar question on these boards a long time ago (october 2013 I think) and the reply was that it would be added soon ... still not. Maybe it's the producer pushing the new 18-140 kit model over the old 18-105 one ?

I don't have anything at stake in this, I have the 18-105 on my D7100 already and I know how much bang-for-buck you get out of it. But several acquaintances now opted for the new 18-140 even though they didn't need the extra reach, just based on the absence of the 18-105 from these lists and even though the D7100 + 18-105 were sold in heavily discounted kits.

Don't get me wrong 18-140 is good ... I liked it myself, but why is 18-105 not here to make the comparison ?

Hi,
Thanks a lot for posting your question.
The DxOMark score for the 18-105 (10) is a bit too low to show it off in the ranking.
Another important consideration is that these reviews are not updated when we publish new results. If you need to access a specific ranking for one camera and check every available results, you can then check the ranking page and then use the filter tools to match your specific needs.
Best regards.

The DxOMark score for the 18-105 is 16, not 10.
As such, it would beat the last lens in your "Best Standard zoom models for the D7100" list. It would also tie with the second and third lens from the bottom.
Maybe you meant to say that the 18-105 doesn't qualify as a standard zoom because it's too long (at 105mm)?

If so, then it should definitely be in your "Best Zoom models for the D7100" list, where it would place in the middle of that list.
But then you could say that list is for long zooms (even though the title missed to specify that fact) and the 18-105 doesn't qualify because it's too short (at 18mm).

Hi,

You are right: it scores 16 on the DxOMark score rating and 10 on the sharpness point of view.
Thanks for you remark, we will try to update our next ranking by taking it into account.
