9 out of 10 points and recommendedCompact, VR, good image quality, very reasonable price.Won't stand abuse. Manual focus?
I read about this lens in a Pop Photo article "Must buy bargain." Good range, compact, light-weight zoom with VR! I bought it new for a vacation trip and I'm very happy with the results. Paired with the 18-70 kit lens on my D-70, this is an excellent travel package.reviewed August 4th, 2008 (purchased for $250)
