Nikon AF-P 18-55mm DX VR / $100 refurbs ... worth picking up?

Reviews consistently praise the latest version of Nikon's DX kit lens as the best yet. It's also the smallest and lightest, with silent AF, and M/MA focus override.

One concern is the focus by wire. Then again the manual focus on the older versions was useless so its impossible for it to be practically worse...

I don't know when this started, but I've noticed these $100 refurbs are flooding the usual channels in a number of markets. Seems like a pretty good deal as a knockabout lens for my D3300.

Just remember you need D3300 or later model to be compatible with AF-P
