Great lens, back focusing is an issue

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Im not a big fan of this lens. It just never proved to me it was worth the full price I paid for it back just two years ago. On the other hand, it is excellent in surprise situations. And it is by the most versatile lens out there. And for that it is worth having in your bag.

Great lens but not perfect

  • Excerpt: Since 2007 I've owned five copies of the lens. It's a heavy and amazing lens if you can handle the size and be lucky enough to get a good copy. There is huge same variation and you need to make sure your copy is decent. Nikon can charge you a lot of money for fixing it.

Great specs, disappointing in use

McHoogilan, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This lens can be as good as the specs suggest, but only under the right circumstances. On a tripod or when shooting brightly lit subjects, it excels, but the lack of VR severely restricts its ability to deliver in real-world use.

  • Excerpt: I was not getting sharp images with this lens so I had it checked. It was back focusing considerably. It took a setting of 8 on my D800 focus adjustment to correct. That is too much for an expensive prro lens in my opinion.

Nice lens, but not as sharp as I hoped

WIll Mac, B&H Photo
24 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I was conflicted about buying this lens because i had read so many great reviews of it online, but also knew a couple of people that have it who said it was a little soft in focus. I really needed that range in 2.8 so I decided to go for it.

Good, not great

Zonhonker, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: So far there is nothing exceptional about this lens. It is competent. It works as advertised but seems a little overpriced. I've only had it for about 3 weeks but I've shot a lot of indoor photos. My Nikon D800 probably gets the most out of it. The wide angle (24mm) setting is very good.

wish it was bigger

  • Summary: This is not 100% what i thought it would be. You have to take the cover off to drink from it. It was not very big at all. I now only use it for water.
