You say: “The front of the lens rotates on focus, which is not good news for those who use polarisers or ND grads on a regular basis.”
But surely that is not right? The ‘ring’ rotates, yes, but NOT the front or filter ring! This is something Nikon has fixed in regard to the previous model.

One needs to keep in mind what can be done with a highly portable, cheap lens such as this one when shooting RAW on a 24 MP camera and processing in a program like DxO Optics Pro which can correct for pin cushion and barrel distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, sharpness and the like for this specific lens. A new age is at hand and much non-pro expensive glass is about to become antiquated.

I’ve bought this lens for my daily walk-by D60 Setup, whereas the D7000 is too heavy, and i don’t want to use it onto every location together with the really good Tamron 17-50/2.8 (w/o AF & VC) lens.
The new VR II really delivers, great because of the collapsile design, and better then the 18-55 VR I
old version, haptics is better, and the front lens doesn’t rotate. Be sure to get a good UV filter 52mm as Front Element protection, and you can buy way cheap also a 3rd Party “Original” Lens Hood for that specific lens.

The front of the lens does not rotate. So a polarizer can be used without any messing about.
