    Price: Kit

    Cons: front edge is easy to wobble

    Pros: Ultra Fast with D5100, super lightweight, ultra sharp especially with little of built in flash, its a kit lens so i can't talk the price.

    Summary: Picture quality is really awesome! just be careful because build quality is low end.

    Cons: Plastic, slow AF, optically not so nice except for the center resolution.

    Pros: Cheap. Center sharpness is nice. Weighs nothing.

    Summary: This is the one to take with you to holidays in bad neighbourhoods. It does not matter much if this one is stolen. Won´t break the bank and won´t break your heart either.

    Cons: Max. app. 3.5-5.6, in low light situations is really not enough, you'll need a flash unit. Rotating and moving front element.

    Pros: Light, small, easy to operate with, no need for VR at these focal lengths, I could say a very versatile lens. A very good value for its cost.

    Summary: In good light situations is a nice lens, you can carry it all day long without problems. If the rotating frontal element is not a problem, then you'll not be dissapointing of it, though you could notice the appearance of dust on the moving parts. It's a good starting lens, but also a nice one to take in your trips/vacations.
