2178-1_copy
Review Date: Sep 28, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Extremely useful range Good contrast, color and sharpmness Good VR
Cons:
Expensive Vignetting at extreme telephoto (85 mm)

This lens is my only used lens although I still have Nikkor 18-55 mm II.
After more than 2 years of quite extensive use (around 20.000 photos) it has some zoom creep.
Excellent all around lens with very good image stabilization so I can get 1/4 s with the 16 mm and 1/15 s with 85 mm with more than 90% success.
It is about the only lens you need on travel. Sometimes it's a little short but the sharpness allows you to crop extensively.
