Summary: Came fast and although there is a bit of a vignette like some of the other reviewers have posted, I love the lens. If you want the perfect lens be willing to shell out $800 for the right one as opposed to one like this which has just as great a zoom length and only half the cost.
Summary: For DX cameras, I think this is a great walk-around lens. Mine has probably seen over 6 years of use and remains my most-used lens. I have a 24-70 2.8 and 70-200 2.8 which are both phenomenal, but I consider them the 'big guns' which are only used on special occasions.
Summary: Love this glass. I now use it for walk around lens with good range of cover from wide to telephoto and a good close up range is a big plus. Amazon ship it in time. I recomand to anyone on the glass and Amazon.
Summary: After losing my lens after a fall in the mountains of Canada, I was pleased to find this lens as a perfect replacement. This was the best price offered online and the lens was a step-up from a 105mm to 135mm. The price was (in most cases) $200 less than local merchants.
Summary: I am a novas photographer at best i got this lens in the D80 kit and have been shooting with it for over a year, like most people I didn't have thousands of dollars to spend on a lens, and I feel that it is a wonderful lens as well as versatile.
