Nikon Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S DX

Nikon Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S DX

"I keep this lens on my camera almost all of the time. This lens is great with such a wide range of zoom, so there is no real need to change lenses. It is lightweight and has quiet operation. The VR wasn't a huge selling factor for me, and I find that I don't use it hardly ever. All around, this lens is great and I recommend it!"
