The AF 28-80 f/3.3-5.6G is as good as Ken Rockwell says

On Ken Rockwell's list of Nikkon's 10 best lenses there's the AF 28-80 f/3.3-5.6G, which was the kit lens for Nikon's cheap film cameras during the early years of the millennium, when Nikon still made cheap film cameras.

So when one was offered on the Dutch version of Ebay, and the F55 for which it was the kit lens with it. I think I actually paid less that way, the set was really cheap.

And although it's not the most useful focal length range in the world and the silver plastic looks cheap, this lens performs just fine on my D7100. Just look at the tiny text between the headlights.
