Hi if your lens in not a VR you could just use the way we took pictures before VR just set the shutter speed at or higher than the lens length ( example 200 MM == 200 th of a second or higher this does work to help with shake but not in low light when you need a slow shutter .

answer 2
how big? about 2-3 exposure values, that's how big it is, especially at longer focal lengths. it lets you shoot handheld in situations where it would just blur otherwise.

I do not see the "VR" switch on it, so I would say it is non-VR. I don't have any non-VR lens, so can not tell you the difference, but I would say, it is helpful to have in certain situations.

AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G
AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.8G

Hi Anon,

Yes, this lens will work just fine on the D7000, as will the other non-S series Autofocus lenses.

Enjoy your D7000, I own one too and it's simply amazing.

My lens seems to have significant aberration. Is it possible the lens is defective or is it a normal amount.

Came with my recently purchased Nikon D5000. In the image uploaded, red/cyan aberration is present and noticeable in the trees on the left side of the pic. Nef files are not supported so the file uploaded is a jpg of the processed image.

Do you feel any resistance when you zoom out and manually focus? Try cleaning the focus ring with compressed air and clean the electrical contacts on the lens. It has a built in focus motor in the lens. It might cost you more than the $250 US it costs to have it repaired. Is it under Nikon's extended warranty?
