Excerpt: An amateur photographer mostly shooting landscape scenes. My first lens with VR and very pleased with the results.I learned very quickly that in order for the VR to do it's magic you have to go listen for the VR to lock in.The manual doesn't really stress this. Leave your tripod at home. Amazingly sharp and fast focusing in good lighting conditions.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged
