All around best action and portrait lens for nature, sports and more!!!
My original purchase (Nikon D40 body only) needed a lens so after some research I chose to go with a mid-range lens for my all around regular photography as well as sports/action pictures. What a great choice too. The lens was much cheaper on EBay than the standard retail price and I had enough money leftover to splurge on some more camera accessories. The lens is great for all but the close-up (0'-38') range. For that range I would recommend an 18-55mm lens. This lens however has proven it's worth many times over. And although I do use smaller and larger lenses, this is always my 'go to' lens especially for nature and action shots. The recovery time for lens focus is nothing short of amazing and allows you to do multiple quick shots with ease and be in perfect focus without delay. The weight of the lens is also much less than a standard SLR lens and compliments the camera's body weight keeping it light but well balanced. In automatic mode using the "A" setting it does all the work for you. Simply set your frame, then press halfway down on the button and it sets your focus perfectly with all compositions included, press all the way down and you have your photo, it's really that simple! The white dot on the body and the lens also make it much easier for quick and proper lens alignment and makes switching lenses a breeze. To have some more control over your subject use the "M" for manual mode and you set all of your camera guidelines. For those who are just starting off I would recommend getting this particular lens size for great all around photography with professional results everytime. If I had to leave all of my lenses home and choose only one to take with me, this would be the one! Cost was less than $150 on EBay and retail at our local camera store for the exact same lens was over $350. If you can afford an 18-200mm lens I would recommend that but you're looking at more than doubling your cost over this lens yet covering a wider range of focal points. For my dollar this was by far the absolute best choice!Read full review

Exactly What is Advertised!
What they advertise is exactly what you receive. The lens itself is amazing. The price is great. Most other refurbished lens' I've seen online are still massively expensive, this is the best value for a quality product I've seen anywhere. It's like the lens is brand new. Plus the accessories...really awesome deal!
