Its cheap, its nasty (according to those people who spend a fortune on Nikon "glass"), its made of plastic, its made by Tamron for Gods sake (UGH!), its got no IS, its only 28-200mm.

Its the Tamron F3.8-5.6 28-200mm AFXR Di Macro Zoom Lens, it weighs 320g, it cost me £139 brand new and its VERY sharp. Its (cut my tongue out and make me write out the whole Ken Rockwell website 100 times!) sharper than the Nikon 24-85mm thats just been released.

It is of course discontinued. Quite right too!
