reviewswhat are people saying

"The build quality is very good, focus and zoom ring are nicely damped and operate smoothly. You do not experiance any wobbling and the lens features the well known EX finish."

"i used to have the 24-70mm f/2.8D EX DG version of this lens, which was ok, but not great at wide open apertures. This lens is an absolute cracker when used wide open!"

"Optically, this was a great lens; no CA's, no Vignetting, sharp output, but at this price point I'm expecting the focus to work properly."

Does this have an internal focusing motor? Does it work with Nikon D3200 which do not have a focus motor?
