Good performance at great price ...

It's a great starter lens to have in your bag to complement 18-55mm or 18-105mm Nikon kit lens. Gives you that extra reach without having to pony up for 18-200mm lens. You can even pick one up used for even better price. VR works fine and it's pretty sharp all around except maybe at 200mm wide open.
For the price, it's overall performance can't be faulted. Still, if I had to do it over again, I would sell my 18-105mm and buy 18-200mm.

Problems:

Plastic lens mount, AF slow in low light.
