Excerpt: I use this lens for portraits and landscape. The aperture is fast and the photos are sharp. It's a quiet zoom. A little heavy, but nothing unreasonable. I'd recommend this to anyone with an APS-C sized sensor...
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I bought this lens for replace mi Sigma 17-70 f 2.8-4. I read and study a lot of reviews before purchase the lens. Instead of the sigma the nikkor has great color rendition, it's not the most sharp lens, but the color outpout delivers punch colors. I mounted on a D7100 and they are a great couple, good balanced. This lens is HEAVY, premium build quality. At 55 mm and f2.8 it's soft.
Excerpt: I use this for landscape, travel and general photography. This is an old design, I know, and probably the most expensive dx lens. <br /><br />But it is as sharp as my 35 dx prime and 50 1.8D and has better corner definition. It is sharper across the frame than my 16-85 and 18-140 (though granted without the reach or either). It's bright, contrasty and sharp across the frame from 2.8 on. <br /><br />This is the lens you glue to your D71K.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: This is a must have with your DX SLR compare this to the kit lens and you will throw the kit lens away. It is a professional quality lens and very fast at F2.8. It is my primary portrait lens backed up by a 70 mm to 200mm DX F 2.8 the pair are just about all you would need. It also does a wonderful job for weddings and landscapes. If you haven't purchased this lens yet you have no idea what you are missing!
Excerpt: I've only used this lens for 1 week but am very happy with the results. This lens replaced my 18-70 kit lens that came with my old D70 (replaced with a D7100). The lens is very sharp, has very good contrast and focuses very quickly. Being an f2.8 lens it is heavy. That is one price for high quality results.
