8 out of 10 points and recommendedSHARP!!!Plastic mount
It is currently the best kit lens.reviewed October 15th, 2008 (purchased for $300)
It is quiet, fast and light.
And I think 18-105vr + 70-300vr should be a good combination
Vignetting at 18mm F3.5 may not be a serious problem when using with D90. Because D90 has built-in vignetting control which is similar to D700
And so far, I don't have any serious vignetting problem when using this kit lens with D90
