"I purchased this lens as an upgrade when i purchased my D90. I have not been disappointed. From weddings to flowers to portraits to everything else, this lens has proven itself a sweet performer everytime.

"This is my main general purpose lens and I'm well pleased with it's sharpness, versatility, useful focal range, weight and feel both on the D700 and D300."

"I bought this lens about 8 months ago, and I am not happy with it. The images are not sharp enough, lens has a strong vignette in the corners at 24, focus is a little slow. I am returning it and spending the extra money on the 24-70 2.8."
