10 out of 10 points and recommendedLighweight, compact and portable. Very sharp photos. Effective range on the D50 is 42 to 120 a very useful range.None.
Image quality with this lens is excellent. Unbelieveable for the price. I do not miss the 27 to 42 range even though I have the 18 - 55 lens. I much prefer the 28 - 80 lens. Way better images. There are reviews out on the Web rating this lens very highly. Check them out.reviewed December 10th, 2006

What a great lens for the price. I picked one up this weekend and took some great shots with it. Works perfectly with my D50, seems just like and extension of the camera.reviewed December 10th, 2006 (purchased for $179)
Image quality of the 4x6 photos was excellent. Somewhat soft at the long end but I think that was me as I was handholding and I should have increased the ISO to get faster shutter speed.
