reviewswhat are people saying

"I consider this lens Nikon's best kept secret. It handles like a 135mm prime. I have to remember that this is a longer focal length lens and that I must bump up my shutter speeds accordingly. It is so easy to forget that in the field because the size is so handy. It feels smaller than it really is. I"

"When shooting certain subjects I have noticed some artifacts like purple fringing, especially noticible when on the water, like surfing or sailing photography. Sometimes this can look artsy, but is not always desirable."
