    If you could pick a used one up for $175, would you do it?

    Consider this, I don't have a camera yet. I'm still rolling my pennies. I'm planning to get something in the Nikon D-series though and I THINK this would be a good lens to start with.

    It seems like a deal to me. I could buy this now and keep saving for a body.

    Thoughts?

    The lens does get good reviews. I have one and it's ok. It seems nice and sharp around f8/f11 then softens up a bit as you stop down more. It also focuses a bit in low light. But hey no lens is perfect. Like I said other seem to like it a lot.

    I love mine. It's a great lens, sharp even wide-open. By several reviews, it's one of the best Nikon kit lenses between the 18-55, 18-70, and 18-200VR. Image quality is great, and the range is extremely useful. $175 is a good price so long as it's a good copy from a reputable seller.
