Excerpt: This is a good lens. It is only good and not great or wonderful becuase of the following: Yes it is heavy and takes sometime to get used to the weight. In its defense it does 'feel' lighter after using it a few times. My lens is slow to react in focusing and I have been unable to determine why.
Excerpt: 3 stars for now. Still experimenting. Seems soft at 18 and 200. On the VR, I previously had a Tamron - the image would jerk and then stay still. Although the image for this lens jerks sometimes, it does not stay still like the Tamron.
Excerpt: Takes very good pictures compare to some higher end models of other brands. Video quality is a BIG NO NO. The video quality is too choppy and not very smooth when compared to other brand. Not recommending this camera because there are two newer model.
Excerpt: I suppose it is a fine walk aorund lens for those who are not real picky about results. It preforms ok for a entry level zoom lens. The 3.5 maximum aperture is slow to focus and not very efficient in low light. In good daylight the lens is fine.
Excerpt: This replaced two lenses, an 18-55 and 70-200. Much easier than switching lenses. But beware, the new lens weighs as much as the older two combined. So the weight in the camera bag is the same, but the weight of the camera you are holding in your hand, or hanging around your next, is much higher.
Excerpt: Since the lens came with my D300 back in June 2010 I have owned it and used it as my primary lens. It is a great action lens, as well as a portrait lens. Just very good over all. So why do I give it lover marks?

Summary: I bought this lens for my D300 as a "walk around" lens. And while I won't say I made a mistake (it is a good lens for the money - especially on a DX camera) the camera is better than the lens - but you really discover that by using other lenses on it and comparing the photos on your computer -...
Excerpt: The biggest advantage of this lens is versatility. What a range! Love the 18-200mm and a big plus to the VR II. My to go lens...I have had great shots and not so great shots. Can't lump it in the same class as the great lenses....but then again it is not supposed to be in that league.
