Thom's Mini Review: A real bargain amongst FX Nikkors, and probably the right mid-range zoom for D600 owners. Not exceptional in any aspect, but it also has nothing that I would call a flaw, either. It's plenty sharp, small, light, has VR, and its few faults are corrected in software when you shoot JPEGs. Recommended
