Summary: I understand the import version of the product but when I opened the box a 90 day re manufactured warranty card was there. No where in product description did it state that this was a return. on the outside of box down by bar codes is a sticker that says new. So I'm confused. I'm sure the lens will serve me well but am disturbed at the way I was not informed as to exactly what the product is as far as new or not.
Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED AF-S DX Nikkor Zoom Lens

Summary: We purchased this lens off the used listing. The ad stated "lens works perfect, package slightly damaged" That was a complete lie. Unless the company is Amazon direct, I won't go that route again. The motor in the lens did not function, nor did the manual focus! At least I got my money back. Really wants that lens for close ups, but will wait and get it new later.
Summary: Nikon zoom lens are some of the best in the world.The 18-55 mm fits that description to the "T". Bringing the subject to , what appears to be within reach. The cost is very reasonable for the quality, functionality and ease of use of the Nikon DX Nikkor Zoom lens.
Summary: While the lens works well, and is one hundred dollars cheaper than comparable lenses, it's not the lens they describe. It's actually an ED II version without VR. I probably would have still purchased, but deceptive marketing never sits well.
