Excerpt: Seriously, spend the extra money on the G series. Reasons the G series lens is a better buy: - Can manually override autofocus without switching your camera to manual focus. - The G series lens is completely stationary (the D physically moves in and out and is LOUD and SLOW). Whatever you end up with, purchase a longer lens hood than recommended if you're using a DX camera. The lens flares are ridiculous on my D300 with the standard lens hood.
Excerpt: Allthough this is a good lens it will not a/f with the D60!!!! Nobody except nikon says this and it's too late after you order it. I was very disappointed that this happened. It does work well in low light but not helpful if you need to focus as you can't see your subject.
Summary: I bought this after reading mixed reviews and I think I got the one that was made on a friday afternoon just as the factory was closing for the weekend. Soft throughout the aperture range Notchy (in some places) focus ring Lots of purple fringing when wide open I would avoid this and go for the F1.8 version instead.
