This lens came with my Nikon D5100. Good one for beginners.
But this lens is not suited for shooting pics in low light conditions and high shutter speeds, especially if you don't have a tripod. Once if you have experimented with this lens, I suggest buying a prime lens(on with fixed focal length) such as a 'Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 35 mm f/1.8G Lens' which is much faster, sharper and renders good bokeh.
Love this lens. The right zoom range, the right price and great performance. What else can you ask for? The VR is pretty effective, I have taken a few sharp pictures at below 1/15 shutter speed. Would definitely recommend this one for anyone looking for an all-purpose lens which is not so expensive.
This lens holds good when you post your images on the web, but for fine and large printing it lacks the sharpness.
It also have color fringing.
If you need to delight your friends with your Dslr images you should 50mm 1.8 with this lens.
