Summary: and the owner said, it's NeCon, probably translated to English as the con artists from Japan, and probably will not work with older Nikon models, but with a plenty of lubrication with oil pumping D6x0 camera, it may work. Why did human invented the word, "caveat emptor?
Excerpt: I am an advanced hobbyist so I do not actively look to photography as a source of income. However, I am serious about getting professional looking results. I started with a Nikon F50, to an F100, to a D200 (six years ago).
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, It Feels Like Quality, Strong Construction
Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy, No Better Than My 500 Le
Conclusion: I don't understand why people are so lyrical about; it's just NOT sharp on a dSLR. Probably the sharpest zoom on a SLR, but if you only shoot digital: do not buy this. The focus is right-on tho, but 9 out of 10 times I will end up with an unsharp image; and I'll have to do a lot of post-processing...
Summary: ich glaube, Nikon hat die Entwicklung verschlafen: Das so hoch gelobte 17-35 / 2,8 ist nicht ein besonderes weichzeichnendes Objektiv sondern meiner Meinung nach ein besonders unscharf zeichnendes Objektiv. Es ist seinen Preis von rund 2000 Euro nicht wert.
