Depending on your lighting situations, you will see some edge aberrations with high contrasting objects in your shot from time to time with images when you are shooting near or at 200mm. The aberrations are minimal and are typically at the edges of the frame.
That being said, I have had my best results thus far Sunday morning at the Oakland, CA Lakeshore Garden with this lens coupled with the 6-Megapixel Nikon D70s.
The lens does give decently sharp images across the frame, I'm sure there are better lenses out there but for the money I'd say this one is a solid buy. The auto-focus is decently fast and quiet, the zoom range makes it great for anything from portraits to capturing subjects from afar, and the construction is decent enough that you don't feel like it'll break just from normal use. Overall, I'd buy this lens again (and again, and again...). Oh, and as an added bonus, 55mm on this lens has max. aperture of 1/4.0, which is twice as big as on the 18-55 kit lens (which has max. aperture of 1/5.6 at full telephoto). What that means is that you get a bit more light through the lens to the sensor with the zoom lens, if I understand optics correctly. That *should* make this lens better suited for portraiture and moderate lighting situations at that focal length, than the kit lens.
Sorry, not the most technical review, but I have to admit, for $150 this lens let me capture some amazing moments at a dear friend's wedding, and you can't really put a price on that!!!
