reviewswhat are people saying

"Great for portraits! Puts backgrounds beautifully out of focus."

bhphotovideo.com

"This is THE BEST Nikon lens as far as portrait glass goes, it has quality all over it. Built like a tank, pricey, but worth every penny."

bhphotovideo.com

"The only thing I regret is that it doesn't have Nikon's M/A switch (like newer lenses do) so you can't just grab the focus ring and use it when ever you want."
