Nikon 18-70mm f3.5-4.5g
Exclusive Silent Wave Motor for high-speed auto-focusing with accuracy and super-quiet operation
Optimized DX lens design is compatible with every Nikon D-Series digital SLR cameras

Three Nikon ED glass elements, plus aspheric element for low distortion and minimized chromatic aberration

The build quality is very decent. Nikon used higher quality plastics compared to e.g. the AF-S 18-55mm DX but it can't match the (excessively higher priced) AF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 DX here. Interestingly the lens features a dust and waterproof rubber sealing mount which is highly unusual in this price class.
Kent Rockwell comments:
This is a serious lens, not a "kit lens" or a cheap replacement for a lens cap sold as part of a kit as with most other cameras. The fast f/3.5~4.5 speed should be your clue; the cheapies are all f/3.5~5.6..
This 18~70 is similar to a 27~105 mm on a 35 mm film camera.

Asking $95 + $8 Shipping - Pay Pal only.

Thanks.
