Overall i'm disappointed
on 5 July 2013
I wanted to wait a while before posting a review of this because I wanted to give it a chance as other people have given quite positive reviews (which is why I bought it).
I've taken the lens out in various light conditions and in countryside + city environments. Overall I have to say i'm disappointed, it's simply not as sharp as I would expect at any focal length. The kit lens that came with my D3100 is miles better. And I really have given this lens a decent chance. Useful for experimenting maybe but based on my experience I'd have to advise you to spend some extra money for a better lens.
Perhaps also worth mentioning that the item I received was a grey import, the documentation is in Chinese. Not necessarily a problem as Nikon warranties are world-wide, but not helped by the fact this lens isn't up to the standard I expected.
