Excerpt: I made the mistake of buying this lens through another retailer (before I discovered B&H)… and I found out soon after purchasing it that the lens had serious de-centering issues -- every image was blurred and smeared toward the edges, which clearly indicated there was a misaligned or defective...
Excerpt: Bought this lens for multiple reasons especially for a week in Yosemite. It spent most of the time on a D4S. I use it for many different shots including time lapse. Downloading every night I saw what I thought were good images.

Excerpt: Like others who have left reviews, I also have had issues with this lens. The last one is a very stiff zoom ring that does not rotates smoothly. The repair at the Nikon repair service centre quoted at more that US$. This is really unacceptable for a lens of this price.
Excerpt: I just purchased this lens (after reading all the hype) to use with my D610 and was very excited when I got it. Took it out on a Senior photo shoot. Got home and uploaded photos to my computer and noticed right away the majority of my photos were blurry and not in focus.
Excerpt: My primary walk around lens on my d810, along with the 70-200 f2.8 in the bag. Yes it's heavy, yes it's big, but holy cow is it worth all that ! Saving up now for the 14-24 f2.8 then l will be set for years.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
