I love low-light photography. Give me a fast lens and some 3200 and I am set.

So when I heard about Nikon making an affordable VR short zoom lens, I was intriqued.

My biggest gripe is that I am stuck with with a 50/1.4 if I really want to work in low-light. Which means I have to get closer to the subject. And since most of my low-light work is "street" work, this can be a problem. I find that a certain distance is needed before people forget the camera is there.

So this sounds pretty nice to me. Getting three stops of light at 120mm is a pretty nice idea!

That is if it works.

Has anyone had any experience here?

At around $575.00 this seems to be a great lens for me. Cheap, and good in low light.
