You will enjoy it!
I bought mine new for a Nikon 6006 many years ago, and it works well for digital. I had it refurbished last year. I went on vacation with my 18-55 and 70-300, and I missed it!

The close-up feature can't quite be called macro, but it will do amazingly close photography. I like it a bit better than my 18-70mm AFC lens.
Light and sharp,it gives a 42-157 mm equivalent on a DX format camera. Not really wide, but, then I don't use wide s lot.

The original metal bayonet hood is a monster, but you can buy a smaller plastic version, which is not as deep as the Nikon one, and it is more prone to flare.

Using a polarizer is difficult with either hood, so, I use an older rubber screw-on hood for the times I want to use my cpl. It screws into the front threads of the filter, allowing the filter to rotate.
