A well kept secret - Find one used. This is a semi-pro lens and has high quality optics and ED coatings. Pair it with a 70-300mm IF ED and a 50mm 1.8G. You'll have a lens for every occasion thats very close to professional quality. You can buy all three of these lenses used for about $800. Then you have pro quality results on the cheap. This is my secret weapon and is my walk around lens. Its on my camera (D5100) 80% of the time. I get results very close to professional quality with this set of gear. May 18, 2014
Loving yhis lens with IV! and 1J1 I used this lens for years with the D70 and D300. Now with the 1V1 or 1J1 it is just fantastic. With the CX sensor it performs better than the Nikon 1 lenses but not as good as my old AIS prime lenses.....Highly recommended for the Nikon 1 series as it is so balanced a package.

Oldie but goodie I purchased this lens new with my D70 back in I think 2003 or 2004. I now have a D7100, and this lens is plenty good enough for Nikon's top of the line DX camera. It doesn't have VR, but it is sharp with beautiful colors and bokeh. I think this was one of Nikon's first DX specific lenses, and they really did a good job on this one. I'll be using mine for another ten or twenty years. If you can find a used one in excellent condition, by all means buy it. This lens makes the Nikkor kit lenses look like junk. October 18, 2013
sharep and cheap this lens price bought $300-$350 new used lens price $150-$200 This lens is very sharp, distortion is also good the color that comes out is also very nice Judging from the price, this lens is very decent in comparison to the results love this lens sorry my english is so bad March 29, 2013
Nikon 18-70 mm beauty. Love to snap pictures with this lens. It is a fraction of the cost of the 18-200 mm with the same results at mid range to closeup shots. March 4, 2013

May purchase a d800 or d3200 and already have this lens. Just want to confirm it will work and function properly.

Answer: 
It will work on both, however, on the D800 it will be in DX crop mode so you will lose resolution
