Summary: I bought this same focal length lens made by Tamron, and returned it (Adorama has a very generous return policy), got the Nikon D series lens, returned that, and then got this lens. Those two lenses were OK, but they both had shortcomings: the Tamron was slightly unsharp, the Nikon was heavy and close-focuses to around 4 feet. This lens is my go-to lens for nearly everything on my D600.
Sharp and Lite Zoom Lens, but the Plastic barrel is fragile.

Summary: Great multi-purpose lens for FX format Camera. It is G Lens mean it don't have the motor on the lens to drive the Focus. If your camera body don't have the mechanical to drive the lens it will not Auto Focus. It is compatible with Full Frame Nikon D3, D700, D800. Dx format D300, D90, D7000, D7100 will also can use autofocus but gonna have 1.5factors times(28-200mm). It is not cannot Auto Focus on Camera body Nikon D40, D60, D5100.
A very good all around lens, for full frame and APS Cameras

Summary: I became aware of this lens thru Ken Rockwell's review. I've had it for about a month and so far I have been quite pleased with it. It is on a D70, and it has become my main lens because of the zoom range and its relative lower weight. I will also use it with my Nikon film camera, and having it allows me to consider a full frame digital body. The picture quality has been superb. The lens has its weaknesses, as its build is mainly plastic, so I have to watch handling.
This lens is a real gem and would be a bargain at twice the price.

Summary: The Nikon 28-200mm F/3.5-5.6 IF AF ED G lens is really great for walk around photography. It is my do it all lens of choice while hiking because of it's light weight and extremely sharp images. Not to mention the fact that it performs equally well on DX and my FX bodies.
Summary: This is a good all-around lens for Nikon film cameras. The zoon range is akward for small sensor digital cameras. The picture quality is excellent and the built quality is ok. Since it is a G lens, so it will not auto-focus on, for example, Nikon D40. I do't have problems with the plastic mount when mounting to D80, D70 and/or D50. For Nikon D3, the plastic mount could be fragile! Overall, this is a good value everyday all-around lens for Nikon users.
Summary: Love this focal length. Have had a 28-200mm as my "Travel Lens" for years. This one is the smallest, lightest one ever and the images are wonderfully sharp. Only caveat is lack of an aperture ring. Can't really use this lens on my F4 or FM3. But it works wonderfully well on my N80 and D700.
Works great on my FX and my DX's, nice to carry. !!!!!!

Summary: I wanted to get a few newer lens around me when I totally go to FX and was very suprised with this little light 28-200 Very sharp at 200 being hand. I will have to be more careful when I change lens, because of the plastic mount, but over all It's quality built and looks sharp.
Summary: I am a Pro Photographer and I love this lens! It provides crisp, clear, clean images. I know it is old technology, but it performs as good as my more expensive Nikon telephoto lenses. The range of zomm it provides is oustanding. There are no vignetting issues with the 28mm setting. (I use thin UV and Polorizing filters). I would recommend this lens to anyone.
