Excerpt: Since 2010 I have owned three copies of this lens. Earlier in my career either I didn't notice the softness at the various focal lengths during certain lighting scenarios (always blamed user error), but years later there are certain things with this lens that drive me batty.
Summary: I purchased this lens after the release of the newer version with VR, the f/2.8E, after debating which version to buy. I'm glad I did, as I love this versatile zoom! For those who are making the same decision, I'll break down the deciding factors for me by asking questions I was confronted with.
Summary: I use this lens on a Nikon D800. I have been using this lens for the last 4 years. It's my go to lens for 3/4 and full length fashion photos The lens is very fast and very sharp. It has very little chromatic aberrations, and what little it has is easy to fix in post.
Summary: Absolutely excellent. After hearing the reviews about V2, i still went on ahead and purchased this legend. And it's everything that I've wanted. Ive shot about 2k worth of photos with this lens so far from a portrait perspective and it's given me crisp photos and no need to fine tune.

Summary: I bought this lens as refurbished condition straight thru the Nikon USA website. As soon as I received my lens, I inspected exterior cosmetic condition of the lens (mint condition) and also tested performance.
Excerpt: I use this lens with d300s and d800. I was going to get the latest VR version but reviews are not favorable. My first lens has a grinding sound between 24-35mm but it does not affect the focus. I decided to exchange for another one and BH accommodated the exchange efficiently and effectively.
Summary: I love this lens! I usually only stick with prime lenses, but i have recently started doing more wedding photography and this lens is perfect for group shots. I also use this for night sky photography and it does awesome! Love the clarity, color and bokeh from this lens.
