4 out of 5 eggsMy Workhorse Lens

Pros: - Very useful zoom range from wide angle @ 16mm (equivalent to 24 mm in a full-frame sensor / 35 mm film camera) to mild telephoto @ 85 mm (equivalent to 127.5 mm in full-frame sensor / 35 mm film camera).
- Vibration reduction feature works well (within reason) for less-than-optimal lighting in hand-held shots
- Real glass and metal components (see cons about the weight)
- Excellent overall sharpness and distortion characteristics across all focal length ranges and aperture settings
- Nikon USA service / warrant coverage (I needed it)

Cons: - Heavy Lens
- My lens has been back to Nikon for repair once
- Not really a fair criticism (just FYI), because of the minimum focal length specs of my camera body for use with flash, BUT: Size of lens (diameter of barrel) can block part of flash lighting

Other Thoughts: I purchased this lens nearly 5 years ago, and have used it with both the D40x and D5000 bodies. It has worked very well with a circular polarizer for predominantly landscape photography applications. It did develop an issue where the autofocus failed to lock and would jitter / move for several seconds even after letting off of the shutter button, and the camera would cycle and record an image while the lens was moving. I sent it to Nikon USA up in NY with the warranty slip and a copy of the receipt (sorry NewEgg, I bought it elsewhere before I knew you were selling this equipment), and they repaired it and returned it in about a week. It has worked perfectly ever since.
