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.
