    The Nikon AF NIKKOR 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED does not have a built-in focus motor, it is screw driven. And being a G-lens it has no aperture ring. Sharpness is poor wide open and distortion is heavy at all focal lengths especially to the ends. The only advantage of this lens is its size and weight.

      And yet it lives on my camera and has for years. Have taken killer shots with this little lens of landscapes in America and Europe. So light and small, sharp and snappy, I would not consider a trip without it.

      I just bought this lens . I got it for $310, very clean and pretty mint condition with ND filter and its original bag.
      Beautiful and sharp pictures.
      Love it.
