"Great all-purpose lens"4.5 starson by jay.butler
Pros: Zoom range,vibration reduction
Cons: Zoom creeps on my early version
Summary: This is a great travel lens. If you only have space to pack one lens, this would be the one. It can also be the one lens that you leave on the body all of the time.
I think that Nikon has addressed the zoom creep. My lens is one of the first. A friend with a later lens has had no creep issues.
Sure, it would be nice to have a full-frame lens, but that would add bulk and weight. Plus, FX camera bodies are still only in the $3,000+ range.
