Summary: For the price, this is great. I like my 35 and 50 primes better. They are sharper at all apertures than this one is. But having a zoom is important for certain applications. With a speed light, this is great for events and such.
Excerpt: This is a great lens to use in low light and for an all around purpose lens. However it does tend to occasionally vingette but that can easily be fixed in the camera by changing certain settings or fixed on your computer.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Summary: I got this lens like a walk around lens cause of it size and range. It is light also. Love the macro option. Wide aperture is good but you have to learn how to work with it wide open. It is very soft while wide open so try it out and learn how to avoid the soft spot.
Summary: Wow, the pictures are wonderful. I bought this for my son. He purchased a Nikon 610 as his wife had identical twin boys. He's been taking lots and lots of pictures with this lens over the past month, and the photos are ever so clear and beautiful.

This lens is rugged and built for the pros for use on Nikon pro or semi-pro DSLR body, hence, the AF would not function on Nikon DSLR not equipped with drive...
