I have no idea why the heck you have reviews praising this lens. It's a kit lens, totally not sharp or good in any matter.

My mistake, I'm a Canon user and I wasn't aware of it, thanks for the info

Hi Alfan, I think recent full frame cameras from Nikon work with DX lenses in a 5:4 crop mode.

there must be a mistake, you can't use DX lenses on full frame cameras
