Summary: This lens is really cool. The pictures were so much better, even with the older body that I had when I first got this lens. The new body vastly improved the picture quality and this lens went really nicely with it. I do find myself somewhat wishing there was a way to autofocus, but I don't normally do that anyhow so I'm okay with it how it is.
Summary: I saw this lens going for very cheap and couldn't pass up bidding on it. Given that I had gotten it for under $100 my expectations were very low. But this turned out to be a really great lens! I love that the aperture can stop down to f42, because I like to do long exposures. It has almost zero lens flare. I can take pictures with the camera pretty much pointed straight at the sun, with no flare. Makes it a good lens for sunsets and sunrises.
Summary: I bought this lens because it was an inexpensive Nikon lens and it had many good reviews. This lens is a kit lens for the 35mm. N55 film camera. millions of kits where produced during the last days of film era. I think people are pulling there N55's out of the closets and selling them on ebay. I think this lens will work with most DSLR's.
Great value for a lens which will rival any pure digital image lens photo.

Summary: With an equivalent digital camera lens enormously more expensive, I've opted to remain in the 35mm film realm for a bit longer in some aspects of my photography, getting only the negative processing with a CD. The CD processing allows digital imaging, while waiting for the prices of high-end 35mm cameras and lenses to come down; the adoption curve for good quality digital lenses and camera bodies is still in its infancy, especially considering being in an economic...
