Compact and lightweight,
This review is from: Nikon 18-135MM F3.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S DX (Electronics)
This lens, sadly discontinued now, was in my opinion one of the best budget lenses Nikon made. Although lacking VR its makes up for it with its lightweight and compact size. I have lenses costing ten times the price of this yet in real world photography this lens can hold its own against them all. Fit it on something like a lightweight D3100 or D3200 and you have something that is small and light but can pack a real punch. When I use a lens like this I really question why I have spent out so much on more expensive versions, and tell myself that I should spend less time worrying about things like edge performance on lenses and more time taking photographs.

I agree completely with this review having originally purchased this lens for my D40x it is superb for the money. The lack of VR is not too much of a problem as I tend to hold the lens by its included hood when using the longer focal length. I upgraded to the very good D3100 a few years ago and the 18-135mm lens suits it perfectly.
