Excerpt: Unfortunately i received a bad copy of this lens; focusing was inconsistent at various distances (regardless of aperture setting). My results were confirmed by a certified repair facility and even then they did not know exactly what the issue was.
Excerpt: I have returned this product 3 times trying to get a lens that would autofocus with my Nikon D300. I have talked with the Nikon tech folks, tell them my settings(not that complicated- AF-S),and they tell me it is the lens so I send it back.

Summary: First lens I bought and sadly didn't know what to look for. But in hind sight it was a very bad purchase because it was sold as 'new' but came with no rear lens cap, no lens bag and when focusing on anything close up it makes a stiff grinding noise ...the mechanism is not smooth and sounds dry.
Summary: In no way is it the fault of the seller that this lens was so bad and had to be returned to him. If you like shots of views in a thick fog with a tinge of bluey/purple, then this is the lens for you....but not as a present for my husbands birthday!
Summary: The price seems to match the description "f/1.4D", but the picture shown is of the costly "f/1.4G". This is misleading as the small difference in letter is easy to miss while most people would look at the picture and price. Please change the picture to show the correct one!
Summary: Jeu dans la bague de mise au point, avec bruit suspect, je m'attendais à beaucoup mieux de la part de NIKON. J'ai décidé de retourner cet objectif dont la qualité n'est vraiment pas au rendez vous.
