Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
This is a small, lightweight and versatile lens, which deserves a place in every DX-shooter's bag. Overall there's little to criticise about this lens given its entry-level price point, and the few faults it does possess are scarcely unique in its class.
Everyday photography on Nikon's DX-format DSLRs, where its 28-80mm equivalent zoom range and effective VR are very useful.
Backlit situations, where its susceptibility to flare can cause problems, and critical work that requires manual focus.
