First, I have to say that when you come to the review part, the item may have been shipped from a completely different place as the reviewers before or after you, and used vs new, as well as different things included, etc. So I will review the product only. What I received, which may be different from what you ordered, is a used lens, with the two caps, and the hood. It works great. I bought a D3200, body only, and after a lot of review reading and browsing forums, this is the lens that I chose. It's a great step up from the kit lens, and it's on the cheaper end, especially buying used. The VR is vibration reduction, and it works great for me so far. I haven't had a chance to take very many shots yet, but I will share one or two photos I took with it. I am so glad I followed some advice and didn't buy a fancy bundle with my camera that had a kit lens and a bunch of other stuff. It's way cheaper this way and you get a great lens, which is to me, the most important part. All the other stuff you can grab later and get what you want instead of being forced into having extras you may never use that you paid for. Again, these were just quicky photos taken as I was slapping it all together. I haven't used a good camera since college about 14 years ago, so bear with me on settings. This is without a tripod, and with a noticeable shake to my hand. I'm really happy with this lens.
