    Cons: Soft wide open, rotating., prone to flare, ugly hood.Corners never really very sharp.

    Pros: very conveniant zoom range 28-105, nice contrast and saturated colours, sharp between f8-f11, Low distortion, very good macro. Best value for money among the allarounders, still in 2018.

    Summary: Recommended for newcomers into the FF world. Good all arounder.

    Cons: Build quality is o.k., could be better. But, it is what it is and the price, whether when new or used,, is still a great value.

    Pros: Very sharp throughout the range when compared to any of the consumer Nikkors in the 3.5-5.6 aperture range.Nearly rivals the pro glass in resolution, especially if stopped down one stop. The 1:2 macro function at the tele end is great and makes it just about the perfect walk-around / vacation lens on full frame or 35mm.

    Summary: Super value and quality for the expenditure.

    Cons: The mechanical quality is too low given the high optical quality of the design.

    Pros: Excellent optical quality, relatively low distortion compared to more modern designs. This lens replaced my 35-70mm 2.8 D, also an excellent lens, but heavy and very limited range.

    Summary: I would have to agree with those that consider this a good walk-around lens. I dropped it once, on a hard floor, and immediately tested it with a tripod, strobe, and test image--no visible damage to the lens, no loss of sharpness, amazing! That about sums it up.

    Cons: It feels a bit cheap, but not like some of the newer "G" lenses. I first used on man. focus cameras and found the apertue ring sloppy and difficult to precisely adjust. W/ a D700, it sits on F22 and is not an issue. The hood is clunky and you need the expensive thin polarizers to avoid vignetting at 28mm, even using a 77mm filter on a step-up ring.

    Pros: I once compared it wide open at 28mm to my AF 28mm Nikkor (non-D), wide open. This zoom was much sharper. And I love the 1:2 macro function. Not too heavy but weighty enough to not feel like a third-party cheapie.

    Summary: It's a great one-lens walk-around setup. I find it to be very sharp and extremely convenient. It's on my camera 70% of the time.
