                      I am new to photography. This lens made taking pictures of my children during sporting events so simple. The ability to zoom in compared to my nikkor 18-55 that came with my d40 is just great. If all of nikons lenses are this easy to use I may be looking to find a stronger zoom lens.

                        This lens is an upgrade for me and I find that the vibration reduction is the most appealing aspect. Almost every photo comes out perfect unless I have a major operator error.

                        This is a great lens !!

                          Really enjoyed this lens. Fast, sharp and seemingly durable. Only thing I didn't like was that it was a 52mm opening. My D90 kit came with a 62mm lens which meant I had to buy two sets of filters.
