AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR
Lens failed within 90 days of purchase
Auto-focus suddenly stopped working. I have had this lens less than 90 days. I know the AF-S DX 18-55mm lens is faulty because there are no problems using my Nikkor DX AFS 55-200 with my D3200. Now I have the hassle of filing a warranty claim and shipping the lens.

Decent beginner's lens.
The lens was being used on a Nikon D80. I bought this to serve as an all around events tool...family gatherings, outdoor adventures, auction photos. The motor is a little noisy when focusing, and sometimes the VR jitters, but ultimately catches the focal point. I liked using a reverse mount macro lens ring with this lens. The lens was light-weight, fast, and the results were pretty clear.
I sold it when I upgraded to the Nikon D800E, since I didn't want DX format photos anymore. My next purchase will be a Nikon VR II...probably the 70-200. I'm trying not to be a lens hoarder, so I'll only purchase one or two premium multi-task lenses from this point on.

Wife loves it = I love it!
Ease of use and installing or removing was a click. Wanted DSLR that wife could learn on and I could enjoy using also. This has done every thing we wanted.

le faltan marcas de enfoque, no tiene la reseña de hiperenfoque
me resulta un poco incomodo el hecho de que no cuente con graduación en la zona de enfoque, sobretodo en fotografías de larga exposición nocturna

not a bad lense
Have had this lense for about a year now but have only used it for a couple of months at most. It came with my d5100 that I still currently use but was easily replaced by my 50mm 1.8 almost immediately. That being said it's not a bad lense at all. For the price you can't go wrong. The quality is there and it covers a good range for family and Facebook type photography. I wouldn't recommend buying the lense itself for the reason that you can save and get a better lense for a little more money.
