With a second-generation VR system and handy focal range, is this the ideal all-purpose lens for Nikon DX-format bodies?
If you hunt around you should be able to find this lens for around £400 to £500. Even the higher price is a fair figure but at the lower end of the range this is almost too good a bargain to miss.
