"Amazing 'Kit' Lens...Largely considered a kit lens, but don't let that stereotype sway you. All the Z lenses are top shelf, and this one is no exception. ...Lens is good but not worth the price....Better use a FTZ if you have a AF-S zoom lens lying around. I have a 18-105 AF-S lens old lens and I did not find much difference in photo quality unless you zoom and try to locate aberration which most average photographers don't do.

"F stop changes as soon as you zoom...great lens but not as good as the 12-35mm with the constant 2.8 aperture...Best all-around run-gun lens...But I say, even with the 35-100mm in my collection as well, I am 100% firm in my decision to pick up this lens.
