Love this Lens"Absolutely love this lens. I've had it for about 6 months now and have very little to complain about, especially considering the price. I recently took it to South America, where for three months it went through hell from high altitude, dusty and muddy environments, to just general heavy usage on a daily basis and withstood everything. It's a very durable, well made lens.
As for the optical quality, as a general walk around lens this is the one to get unless you can afford Nikons 16-85 which is considerably more expensive. The photos are sharp, the bokeh is nice and the range is rather good, though if it went a little longer I would have been more happy. Still, personally, most of my photo taking doesn't involving taking photos at the macro nor telephoto range and so this lens completely suffices. Lastly the AF is very quiet. Enjoy."
