Summary: Quite inexpensive and it delivers. I am surprised at how good the images are it produces. I would not hesitate to use if for professional applications. And the macro feature is very good too. I would recommend this lens to anyone. Russ
Summary: Bought this lens a few days ago at a bargain price and I think I found my walk-around lens. My first impression was that it looks a bit like Nikon 35-70 f/2.8. It is very sturdy, comfortable size and weight. It does everything sufficiently well and that is what one wants for a general purpose lens.
Summary: I ordered this lens on the 10th of June, it arrived on the 13th. What absolutely great delivery time. The lens it's self is in beautiful condition with no dints, dinks or scratches. Everything moves quit well with just a little in the way of noticeable wear due to use. This is no problem at all.
Summary: I am very pleased with this lens, which stays on my D700 most of the time. It is very solidly built and is sharp enough for most of my uses .... on trips, this is the only lens I take. I have a number of prime AF lenses but they rarely get used these days.
Summary: Bokeh isn't bad, but not excellent Sharpness isn't bad, but not excellent Contrast isn't bad, but not excellent Flare resistance isn't bad, but not excellent Sure, it won't equal performance of your primes and it doesn't have VR; but for 150-200 used you really can't beat it.
Summary: I purchased this lens for my Nikon D700. For the types of shooting I do it is my first choice. It is a great all around lens. The macro portion of the lens could have been designed a little better. Overall this is an excellent lens.
Summary: I only wish it was 18mm instead of 28mm. I find it to be sharp across its zoom range. It has a macro function I still haven't tried yet. Would be five star on an FX rig, as a walk around lens.
