"great all around lens"4.5 starson by dtung118
Pros: great range, small, light, VR, M/A
Cons: expensive, speed
Summary: c|net released this review a little late... but here goes... this lens is a great all around lens. by no means is this a professional lens.
people keep complaining about distortion and lens creep, but distortion occurs with every zoom lens, and this one is not much different than the nikon 18-70mm zoom, and it doesn't matter much at all, because this is a digital only lens, meaning that you won't be able to use it on a film camera, also meaning you can correct it with a few easy steps.
lens creep is not an issue as long as you reset your lens to 18mm. lens creep happens with most zoom lenses that have the weight to do so.
