"Great lens for all around use"4.5 starson by jim_stott
Pros: VR allows shooting in low light with good results
Cons: Unable to lock the lens so it extends by itself while walking
Summary: I have been using this lens for 2 months and find it to be extremely versatile. Focus is fast and the VR is a great feature. I had been using a Tamron 28-300 and although it is a good lens the VR allows me to shoot in much lower light without the need for a tripod. I gain a good 4 stops due to the VR feature. The 18-200 range enables me to do the majority of my photography without having to change lenses. I am looking to buy a macro lens and will definitely get a Nikon VR lens when I do.
