8 out of 10 points and recommendedsmall and light, sharpa little prone to ca as i would expect
i got this lens a couple of days ago and mounted it on my D60. makes for a very light combo. overall image is quite good... very sharp when stopped down to 2.8 and sharpness peaks at around 5.6, imho.reviewed July 16th, 2009
highly recommended for a dx - short portrait lens.
9 out of 10 points and recommendedsharp overall, vrII works great. the extra 2mm wide open makes a big differencea bit slow in low light. expensive
i've had this lens for over a year now, and i must say it has held up pretty well. build quality is excellent, and vrII works very well. overall sharpness is good and makes for a nice walkaround lens. i make sure to bring this whenever i go with my out of town trips. very usable zoom range.reviewed July 16th, 2009
there's no real glaring weakness of this lens, so i would highly recommend it. ditch that kit lens and go for this!
8 out of 10 points and recommendedbang for the buck, makes for a great travel lens, compact and lightslow lens and hunts focus in low light
got this lens recently to compliment my 14-45 & 20mm pancake on my GF-1. Good image quality esp. when you shoot raw. Nothing much to complain given the price point and performance. Definitely recommended!reviewed July 12th, 2011 (purchased for $340)
