Not for pros, but great for recreational photgraphers.
This lens is a great starter lens in addition to the 18-55 kit lens however it has its limitations, with a maximum aperture of 4.5 and relatively slow autofocus, its not suited for sports photography and will not perform well in low light. That being said, it is still a Nikon DSLR lens and will take amazing pictures in proper lighting. Bottom line: If you are into sports, spend the extra for the 70-300 lens because it has faster autofocus but if your not photographing sports all the time or are just a recreational photographer, this lens is a great asset.

A very satisfied amateur photographer
I purchased this lens kit and I love it. I leave that lens on my camera all the time. I am a quadriplegic and I have limited use of my hands. I use a tabletop on my wheelchair. I use a small tripod to set the camera up on a tabletop. With the digital camera, I can then take some beautiful pictures. I print them on photo paper myself. And I'm very happy with this lens kit. Thank you, Harry W Chapman Jr.

I bought this for my wife. She loves it. The image stabilizing works great. It’s durable. You can’t go wrong for the money.
