Pros

Nikon's latest built-in optical vibration reduction (VRII) - ideal for a longer / slower lens

lighter than most lenses in this focal range

2 agree

like most Nikon glass it is sharper than the competition

1 agrees

pictures come in consistently sharp and crisp

1 agrees

no chromatic aberration, colors come in nice and vibrant

1 agrees

a great travel lens - take it alone, no need to pack more heavy glass / replace your lens on-the-go

1 agrees

solid, sturdy build quality with metal mount

1 agrees

relatively compact

1 agrees

capable of a very wide focal range, makes it useful in a wide range of situations

auto-focus is fast, and the additional manual adjustment ring has a nice action

Cons

vibration reduction doesn't seem to work well in low light

1 agrees

light fall off at long telephoto settings and large f-stops

1 agrees

DX / crop-sensor only - won't work on a full frame camera if you decide to upgrade

1 agrees

relatively slow f/3.5-5.6 - poor for low light shooting

1 agrees

never going to be as sharp or well controlled (CA, vignetting, distortion, etc..) as primes / lenses with smaller ranges

1 agrees

focus ring is tiny, has a lot of play and is not very accurate

1 agrees

fairly heavy - long focal range, AF motor, image stabilization
