Summary: Purchased this as a Christmas gift for my teen photographer son and he's very happy with it. He's starting his own photography business. This lens has served him very well on his Nikon DSLR camera.
If I had the money I would have splurged on the newer G version since I don't like using this during events like wedding ceremon

Summary: The AF is a tad slow and loud, but aside from that I get very sharp lovely images from it! If I had the money I would have splurged on the newer G version since I don't like using this during events like wedding ceremonies, because the AF is so loud.
Summary: Awesome lens! Its not VR.... But if you have a steady hand its not to bad and when doing macro you'll most likely want a tripod anyways. But I ordered this on the 19th and it was here on the 22nd....3 day delivery!! Amazing!
