Stephen, Stourbridge,UK Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Typical Nikon quality. Easy to use as soon as attached to camera body.
Stylish looks.
Bad points:
Possibly the only detraction is the weight compared to much cheaper lens. You know that the lens is attached!

Joseph, Singapore Occasional photographer... Amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good, quality images. Beautiful 'bokeh' effect. Very good for portrait shots.
Bad points:
A bit heavy though, but in exchange for sharp, beautiful pictures, I don't mind the extra weight.

Colin, Lugo Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent optics and build quality. Fast autofocus. Sharp into the corners.Constant aperture. Good colour rendition
Bad points:
One of the "older" DX zooms (over 7 years from release). Will probably be uprated with VR at some time. Bigger and heavier than the 16-85 VR.

Scott, Stock Photographer

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Build quality, contrast, sharp when stopped down to f4 and beyond, almost as sharp as prime lenses at equivalent aperture.
People say its heavy, it isn't THAT heavy, It balances and feels great on a D7000
Bad points:
Not as sharp as people make out at 2.8, chromatic aberrations are problematic wide open,. Very expensive considering it's faults.
For the price you could buy a couple of very good prime lenses and zoom with your feet.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
An excellent lens, although a little prone to flare and ghost images. Sharp, solidly built, no IS (VR).
Bad points:
Expensive, heavy - but if it was built down to a price it wouldn't be as good!
