Pros: Colors rendition, contrast because of pure glass inside; good sharpness and zoom range, cheap.

Cons: It is not very luminous

Opinion: I use it mainly MF on a Fuji xf with adapter. It is a pleasure to work with such combination. The so called macro (1:3.4) is quite useful too. Because of pure glass inside it is able to render a very nice 3D effect, as many old lenses, in comparison with many modern plastic lenses that are inside of objectives. It is very good too for portraiture works.

Pros: Good sharpness, especially when stopped down little bit. Very low price

Cons: Lateral chromatic aberations might be significant issue

Opinion: Good choice for a budget use (I bought it for 58 USD). If you are fine with 28 mm as a widest focal length. There is a uncommon macro functionality, but only at 28 mm. Sharpness is good, but purple fringing is an issue. Autofocus is maybe faster than D lenses, but it is kicking when focus is achieved. I had the same excperience with a Pentax lenses some years ago.

Pros: All the good has already been said by those who preceded me

Cons: None given the price, I abandoned it after years of use only to favor smaller and lighter lenses

Opinion: The example I had is of the first AF series. I've used it on film, mostly slides, and digital d700. Great all-rounder in both uses. I think it's superior to the later aspherical zooms of the af-d series because it's sharper at TA and because of its overall more plastic rendering. Slightly warm colors. Impeccable on film, it was a perfect travel companion and reportage with f90x. Replaced for the weight with the smaller 35-70 f3.3-4.5 and for the dismissal of the digital where it also performed very well. On digital, on the one hand, it has a sharp but less contrasted rendering, very pleasant and slightly "vintage", on the other hand, it is affected in some cases by side light. Minor defects are distortion, relevant for architecture: at 28mm it is regular barrel, easily corrected; Present in various forms over the entire focal range. TA vignetting. The AF is slow compared to modern lenses, and yet... Coupled with the D700, when called upon for some ceremony, it didn't miss a beat, perhaps also because it was assisted by the flash illuminator. Thanks to the d700 no problem even in sports photos used in af-c.

Pros: Price - quality

Cons: Slightly dark and large

Opinion: IN coupled with the d700 also gave me some monstrous photos (in a positive sense) at the modest price of about sixty euros. At that price you will not find anything better. It doesn't hit all the shots, but most of them are extremely pleasing. Highly recommended. The yield on sky and clouds is delicious, but this is perhaps also thanks to the d700.
