Summary: Great walk around lens. Prevents the need to switch lenses in the field and avoids getting dust inside the camera. But... The amount of light coming in especially at long focal length is much less than the Nikon kit lens (70-200). It has a very difficult time focusing on moving subjects even when they are not moving fast and even with lots of light available. I've noticed some amount of flaws in the edge of most pictures at a variety of focal lengths.
Summary: I wanted one lens for travel to save on space, weight and for convenience. It gives you that but pictures aren't as sharp consistently as I'd liked. The macro on the sigma 70-300 is much better. It gave me convenience but I questioned if I should have just traveled with a good point and shoot.
Summary: while this seems to be a good lens, I am disapointed about the lens diameter. I was under the impresion it was a 72mm diameter based on suggested accesories, which I purchased and they do not fit this lens. luckly the accesories will fit other lens I own, I do not have the setup I was looking forward too.
Summary: Very nice lens, color is excellent and the complaint had not, but about two months ago began to generate a high pitched noise that is recorded up when recording video. I'm aware of the security which the store where I buy it responds to messages sent proceed to send him to USA, at this moment I am in Colombia and am waiting indications.
Summary: I use this on my D5200 as a multipurpose lens. See the review from Nosferatu on 9/2/13 as well. Quality of the images are not as good as the standard Nikon lens that comes with the kit however for everyday use I thinks its good. I do not use it professionally. The biggest disappointment for me has been the zoom. Although it is suppose to be 250mm on the D5200 on max zoom of 250mm it is = to about 140-160mm on the original 50-200mm nikon lens.
Bulky but a suitable one lens solution for DSLR owner

Summary: Sold my DC 18-200mm with 62mm filter size for this slightly longer focal OS lens...sad to say I'm not accustomed to using a much larger diameter (72mm) grip and heavier lens. The extra 50mm on the long end is not worth the bulk - the OS is nice to have but if you have a steady hand or use a tripod, you won't need this feature.
The Lense fits very well with My Nikon D3100 , but only hitch is the lense is little tight while adjusting the Zoom lense

Summary: The Auto focus is good , Which means the AF motor mechanism is working excellent , but when i tried adjusting the ZOOm , it is little tight , not sure if this gets better with use or if this is a defect .
