Good points:
this is a surprisingly good lens for the price. Very little distortion, handles stark contrasts quite well and the VR is worth the bit extra, I've taken very passable shots with VR on what would have normally been deleted without VR. However it does suck more juice from the battery.
Bad points:
It's not that fast in natural low light it can sometimes struggle to focus (when in AF). However under what I would call normal or general conditions it's very responsive, and quicker off the mark. Obviously you get what you pay for and this is a budget lens but it does what it does extremely well.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellant quality images for the price, zoom covers a useful range and compliments my 18-70 mm used on a D90. The anti vibration makes a lot of difference and definately worth the extra
Bad points:
As it has a plastic mount you hve to be careful when changing lenses.
