2.0 out of 5 stars Awesome at blurring some irreplaceable family moments, 7 Jun. 2015
Horrible lens and now obsolete since the VRII version for numerous reasons. The focus ring is right on the end and difficult to operate to any precision. Almost every image I've ever taken on it is well below the capability of my D3200 and produces blurry images even in well lit conditions. Its simply not fast enough to use in anything other than bright sunny condition with a tripod, which is bad for what should be a walkabout lens. My camera overcompensates the f.stop by upping the iso, which creates loads of noise, or by increasing exposure time, resulting in blur or dazzling everyone with flashes.
Not bad for landscape shots though, which most lenses of this focal range will be anyway, and the close focus of the lens gives almost macro like images if you invest in a cheap add on lens.
Its fine for learning the ins and outs of your DSLR with but it will soon prove too frustrating when you count up the number of missed family moments. Chuck it in the bin and get a 35/50mm prime along with an 18-100mm focal range, or swap it for the VRII version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy little back up, 19 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Working as a full time electrician and realising I had left my Megger Multifunction at home, I decided a small non expensive tester might be in order. This one seems to tick most of the boxes providing insulation resistance, continuity, voltage and current readings (get a clamp meter, its much easier and safer on 230V systems).
Straight out of the box the auto ranging function works fine. I decided to check calibration against my check box. The leads were shot through give intermittent continuity and wildly inaccurate readings on insulation and continuity. I had some spare leads from my Megger to hand, and on plugging these in I got readings within 0.2 ohms of the calibration readings on insulation resistance, voltage and continuity. The meter does take about 5-10 seconds to level out at the correct reading but do not exceed 30 seconds as it can damage the meter.
It comes with a backlight on the display and storage clips for the leads. The storage case and back stand are also very handy.
In all, it should serve as a handy backup and fault diagnosis meter. You might want to invest in some new leads before use or you'll be tearing your hair out chasing ghosts and faults that aren't there.

Not had much opportunity to use it. But all parts seem sufficiently good enough to cope with the task.

2.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for., 12 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not very comfy and they caused problems with my knees for some reason. After wearing them for a month my knees felt like they were on fire at the end of the working days. I switched to my old pair and the problems cleared. That said they are sturdy enough and reasonably priced so you get what you pay for

4.0 out of 5 stars Good all rounder for the hairy beasts, 12 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great on all areas of the body. I'm basically a gorilla and keeping the hair at bay is a full time job. This works on the groin, body and facial hair equally well. Use the graded combs when in the gentlemans region as it can cause minor knicks in the folds. Also invest in some rechargeable batteries as it eats quickly them due to powering a motor. The head also gets clogged up frequently so use a small brush to keep on top of maintenance. The stand is a little pointless as it doesn't really do anything than hold it in place. A storage bag/case and a lithium rechargeable battery would have been good extras but you can't have everything.

A very nice fitting shoe. I'm an 8.5 UK size and these needed minimal breaking in. Sturdy build and distinctive colouring. I don't think I'd buy any other brand from now on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Damp repellant, 12 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works great in my cupboard with a very cold exterior wall. With this mounted on it and run to a nearby socket it keeps the damp at bay. Some might find the lead a little too short.
