Decent lens, but there's 2 versions it looks like.

Summary: The lens offered appears to have changed alittle. When I bought it back on 3/13 there was no autofocus motor in the lens and was listed as model number A15. Now a new picture appears clearly showing an autofocus motor and the model listed as (A15N).
Great Bargain, but there are a couple of minor caveats

Summary: I just bought one of these recently and have been testing it like mad. It seems sharp as a tack, and nice and light. An incredible bargain at $40! Only one fly in the ointment, though: When using this lens, my D200 underexposes by about a full stop.
Summary: For the price of $40, why not? This lens fits my Nikon d90 well. Comparing this lens to the 18-105 mm Nikkor lens, this lens is actually smaller. I use it as a zoom lens. The only draw back to this lens is putting it on the d90 body. It's backwards.
Summary: I bought this on sale here for 40 smackers. The quality and feel of the lens is ok, it takes great shots tho. Some complain about the focus noise, its true it is loud and if you don't have a body with a focus motor then you don't have to worry about it :).
Summary: good build for themoney and will be used as a quick back up for my Nikon. As was stated in the ad the auto is not compatible with the d5000 but tried it on my brothers d300 and its auto focus was dead on.
Summary: A friend recommended this brand of lens for my Nikon after she purchased one through National Camera at their recommendation. I am glad I took her advice. This lens is far less expensive than the Nikon brand lens and works just as good.
Summary: Excellent image quality, easy to use. Price is so low from KEH you will be immune from buyer's remorse. With Nikon mount, this lens requires camera with focus motor screw drive in mount for auto focus. Manual focus works on all cameras.
