Summary: I'm still getting used to shooting with this lens, but have been very happy so far. I bought it mainly for the lower end 18mm. I can't wait to test its portability in other settings. I imagine indoor settings would work perfectly for this along with other places with tight corners.
Summary: Great versatile lens. My sister gave me her DSLR after her dog knocked it in a creek. I was able to disassemble it and clean it out really well, and everything worked but the auto-focus. I got this for a steal (because there is a newer version that's basically the same thing.
Plastic mount snapped when I dropped it from 2 ft in a camera bag

Summary: I bought this and a couple of days later I dropped my D90 inside a protective lowepro bag with this lens attached. The drop was maybe from 2 feet onto a carpet floor. One side of the plastic mount of the lens snapped off, rendering the lens unusable.
Summary: Great walk around lens. Ordered this to take on a trip to Finland and it spent most of the time on my camera during the trip. VR allowed me to shoot indoors with low light. Overall I am very happy with the lens. I am finding that I prefer Nikon lenses even the inexpensive ones to third party lenses.
Summary: I bought the Nikon D3300 body so I wanted to get the new version of the Nikon 18-55 mm lens. I have a D3100 that came with an older version of the lens. Love the smallness of the lens, the VR feature which the other did not have. Photos have been great.
