  • Excerpt: It's "hard" to give a "kit lens" a glowing 5-Star review; this is a good lens for bright days. I would not purchase this lens @retail$ (new), but the refurbished price was good enough to entice me to add it to my kit. I'm glad I did.
  • Pros: Light, compact, good optics.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this lens because I needed one that could reach out to get pics of a graduation. While it's not as fancy as my 17-55mm, it does have VR and seemed to take some nice shots, despite me being handheld and not on a tripod.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus
  • Cons: Lens Extends As You Zoom

  • Excerpt: This is a great lens as far as kit lenses go. I really struggled with either buying this or going for a used in great condition on a Nikon 80-200 2.8 lens. I wanted to try out Nikon VR lenses and as far as that goes it's O.K.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Price
  • Cons: Weak Casing
