Excerpt: With my D600 body, I use it as a general wide angle zoom lens, great for city and landscapes, zoom enough to do portrait work. The little distortion on both ends is taken care of by Lightroom. Slapped a BW UV Filter for $32 on it, and I'm done. Excellent value at $349 as a refurb.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I use this lens as a walk around on a D600 Nikon. So far there is nothing negative I can report. Images are crisp, clear with excellent color and contrast. One of the main advantages of this lens is weight. It is light but well constructed. Most of my shooting is done in the f8-f11 range so having a variable f does not affect me. I have other lenses if needed for speed but they are heavy!
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction
