reviewswhat are people saying

"Bought this lens for my wife's D5000 so she could do some macro work. Very impressive quality and unbelievable how sharp this lens really is."

"I use this lens for taking photos of jewelry for our gallery. It works great for closeups of small, shiny objects. Work will no longer go out the door without being photographed."

"My only complaint - auto focus is kind of slow. But maybe that is just me, I just switched from being all manual focus."

Any reason why it takes 5 - 6 presses on the shutter release before finally focusing on my subject?

"FX" means its usable for full-frame sensors too. DX lenses are made for APS-C sensors. together, they all use the Nikon-F Bayonet Mount.

Yeah, the lens mount is the Nikon F-mount, not Nikon FX. Might want to fix that.
