The motor seems to try a lot of the time, and sometimes it works, and sometimes it will work but not have a clear focus, and sometimes it just doesn't try. Manual focus wont go closer than 5 metres.
The rubber grip for the zoom is a bit stretched out, but is hangin in there. Sometimes the zoom feels like a rubber band when extending, although that did not happen during the last test. Glass is clean and clear inside and out.The hard plastic barrel parts are looking good. See my other Nikon ads.
