Summary: Uso una Nikon D7000 (DX) y estoy absolutamente fascinado con la optica de este lente, es un lente que encuentra el equilibrio de lo que es lo soft y lo sharp, sin llegar a extremos en ambos, dando una calidad de colores increible, un bokeh muy buy bueno, ademas un lente versátil. Todo eso y mucho mas en un lente de este precio, es fabuloso.
Summary: I bought this lens, refurbished, to use with my new D610 as a general walk around lens. I have had it less than a month, but am very impressed with the sharpness and focusing speed. 24-85mm is the perfect range for street photography, candid portraits, and basic landscapes. I would recommend this lens for any photographer looking for a budget friendly walk around lens.
Lens is sharp, feels good in my hands, and was a great value for the price.

Summary: Even though this lens is constructed of mostly plastic, it still feels good in my hands and has not been a disappointment as far as being sharp. The 85mm end is good for portraits and the 24mm end is fair for landscapes. My only complaint is the lens shade is a little too close to the zoom ring when I bring it back to 24mm. I have large hands and the shade bumps into them. I could leave the shade off, but I like it on my lenses for added protection.
Summary: When I bought my D610 I decided to pick up this "kit" lens to accompany it, just until I can get spring for the 24-70 f/2.8. After shooting with it a couple of days (not long enough for a thorough test, granted), I have to say I'm impressed by the performance. Very quick focus, very sharp images, pleasant bokeh. The lens has a nice heft to it and feels really well made. For $500 I don't see how you could go wrong. Highly recommended!
Summary: This is a great lens!!!! :) I would buy again. There is not a sign of any ware. Looks brand new.The auto focus is really fast. It takes amazing pictures! A ton better then the junk slow 18-55mm kit lens. The auto focus is really fast and it is dead on. Very sharp!!! The lens hood is junk. The one I got was all worn out. It would just rotate all of the time and fall off.
Summary: This lens was purchased with the purchase of a D600 SLR Body to mirror my favorite Nikor Travel VR DX 16mm-85mm Zoom used with my D7000, D7100, and D300s Nikon DSLR bodies. I personally use the DX 16mm-85mm and the D7000 and D7100 with battery-Grips as my favorite travel weight and sized choice.
This lens complements the outstanding resolution of a Nikon D800.

Summary: I put this lens on a Nikon D800 with the hope it would complement the 36mp camera's resolving capacity. I recently enlarged a photo to 20X30 inches to check the resolution of the camera and lens combination. There is edge to edge high quality resolution. Thus far I am impressed with the lens.
