Summary: You get what you pay for. It is a light weight, very delicate lens. You can fee how delicate it is. However, with nice lighting and some adjustments in Photoshop you can get really nice results. If you consider a nice zoom-lens can go over $500, this is a great option for low budget projects, for students or for anyone who's not making any profit out of this lens.
Summary: Great performance for a cheap lens. Probably best mid-range zoom lens under 100 you can get. It's my walk around mid range for sure, and it will cover. 42mm-120mm on a DX, which is what I use for a backup. I personally think it is a good choice for a lens on a d600 or even d800 for casual shooting, then match it with 1.8 or f/2 primes when you need it. It's a great amateur/enthusiast combo.
Summary: I don't know if i would call it auto-focus. Maybe I'm just not using it correctly. Doesn't auto-focus for me. Takes good pictures when i tun the wheel the correct way. Sometimes it bumps against something and comes out of focus but that is expected.
Summary: This lens is truly a magnificent product. A plastic zoom that works amazingly on my D800. The clarity for the pictures are unparalleled for the price. If you're on a budget or even if you aren't this lens is worth picking up to add to your arsenal, you'll be happy with the turnout.
Summary: I read about this lens in some photography articles and took a chance buying it for my D800. It is everything positive and more than anticipated. I wanted an inexpensive mid range zoom lens for casual shooting, as I own mostly fixed fast prime lenses; 35mm, 50mm, 85mm. This lens works perfect on the D800 and although not fast, it has excellent optics and covers the full range of my primes.
