Thom's Mini Review: A real bargain amongst FX Nikkors, and probably the right mid-range zoom for D6xx and D750 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. On the D8xx bodies corner acuity suffers, though the central area is okay.
