Pros: wide range, relatively compact, macro functionality, price
Cons: slow, not very sharp, doesn't go wide-enough on aps sensor, color cast

This was my first lens for my Nikon d50. Which was my first true digital camera (other than 3mp point-and-shoot i'd gotten with my printer). prior to that, i'd been shooting on a venerable Canon AE-1. I had a cheapie 28-210 zoom on that body (no, I didn't know much about lenses), so when i moved into digital, i went for the same range. this lens...was a decent starter lens to begin to learn digital photography. but i am not sure it'll be going back on my camera again. i'd rather forgo the range for quality and speed. the price wasn't bad, and i certainly have learned from the lens, so, it's not all bad. training wheels for my dslr!
