Forever Knight's reviews
9 out of 10 points and recommendedSharp, inexpensive and compacteconomy build
At this price point, the results from this lens are surprisingly good. I would recommend it highly as a companion to any of the smaller Nikon bodies for a light travel kit. The AFS seems a bit slower than the pro lenses but has been fast enough for portraits and photos of the family in good light.reviewed July 19th, 2010 (purchased for $249)
9 out of 10 points and recommendedSharp, reasonable size for it's rangenot AFS
This lens is weakest at 400mm but is helped greatly by stopping down to f8. At 330mm, it performs very well closed down just one stop.reviewed July 19th, 2010 (purchased for $825)
Prefocus and using the autofocus limiter helps it's performance a great deal.
This lens at current new prices is no bargain but a clean used unit is an alternative. Mine was a going out of business sales item and hence the low price.
