dpreview conclusion

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.

Good for

Everyday photography on Nikon's DX-format DSLRs, where its 28-80mm equivalent zoom range and effective VR are very useful.

Not so good for

Backlit situations, where its susceptibility to flare can cause problems, and critical work that requires manual focus.
