Great everyday lens. Was well worth the money and still happy with it after five years...

Summary: Looking back after five, nearly six years, I can say that buying this lens was a great decision. At the time I felt it was a lot of money and although I had done a lot of research, I was a bit apprehensive. Lens has been used on a Nikon D40x, where it is permanent fixture.
A mixed bag but an overall win especially for the price

Summary: I'm using this lens on a Nikon D200. After destroying my 18-200mm Nikon VR I wanted a cheap "walkabout lens" that I could risk destroying as I do a lot of industrial shooting where it's easy to whack a lens. I bought this lens despite some less than glowing reviews.
Summary: I bought this lens to replace my kit lens, which I had given away to my son. I'm shooting a Nikon D300S (so DX rules apply). Anyways... I liked the Idea of f 2.8 even if it was only at the wide end. It still gives me a little more latitude. I also like the internal focus (no zoom extension).
Summary: I really like this lens. I read reviews talking about how you should keep your kit lens which I have but the truth is, I haven't gone back to it since I started learning how to use this lens. I am far from an expert so don't listen to me if you don't want to.
Summary: A lot of things have been said about this lens, so here's my 2 cents in short version. PROs: * Price! Lens of similar characteristics from Nikon costs almost 3x more. * Quality of manufacture - strong and durable body, fits nicely in a hand * Semi-wide angle - even if you have APS-C sensor inside,...
Summary: I shoot a Canon 50d and have been using a 70-200mm 2.8 is lense for most everything. I wanted a wide lense for shooting groups of people without having to stand back 50 yards. This is a great lense for the money. Im learning to use it and learning to use it where its good.
Summary: Picked this up with the 2 day shipping and used it right away on a job. Excellent lens for the value. Sharp and quick autofocus. It won't replace a 'pro' lens or a prime, but if your looking for a wide to medium better than the kit lens that comes with most DSLR's, this is a good choice.
