Pros: bargain fast at the wide end okay auto focus
Cons:
soft images at tele end wide open, ghosting at times build feels a little cheap

This is my first lens for my first DSLR (D50) and it seems like a pretty good purchase.

I chose to pick this up over the kit lens and the prime as it seemed like it would do okay in low light conditions compared to the kit lens while giving up some of the wider focal lengths of the kit lens that these D50's come with.

The image gets noticably ghosty/almost softlike at the telephoto end of things wide open, specificly on small subjects. This seems like a good little starter lens for the money.
