9 out of 10 points and recommendedVery sharp throughout focal lengthpoor bokeh
Sharp through the range, great primary lens with a useful focal length. VRII capability is great also with had held shots possible at the wide(er) end at 1/10". Use it as my primary walk around lens.reviewed April 13th, 2013 (purchased for $699)
Solid plastic construction, with metal adapter ring being a strong positive.
Boken is non existent to weak. Possible to get some development of Bokeh with high magnification.
