Ignore the negative reviews...Decent lens for the money using AF-Fine Tune. Avoid F/3.5 though.

Summary: First of all, if you make your buying decisions solely on other peoples reviews of this lens then my condolences... This lens has is not as bad as some reviews say. This lens is not as sharp out of the box as some other kit lenses I've used. But that didn't stop me from buying it.
worked out for years but isnt the best lens for professional pictures

Summary: i used this lens for 5 years but i never really cared for its sharpness. for the most part it work out ok but it has very soft corners on the wide end and it doesnt go away till i hit f16 and up. and even at that its still slightly visible.
if you are an "L" lens fan don't go for it. It works well f

Summary: I needed this old lens for a special reason; using on Canon 5D mark II for video shooting. The zoom range makes this lens a very verstile lens for the work I use for, and have a chance for stopping down when needed, however moderate sharpness, aberration and other distortions makes it a not so good...
Summary: I own this lens since 2004, bought it for my F100 and it worked great, was very happy. Then digital came and it was pretty useless on DX for me, kit lens with it's 18mm wide end was better choice. Then came full frame DSLR, and the lens is out of the drawer again.
Summary: This lens came with my D700 kit. For the longest time, I did not have a term for comparison. I finally acquired a Nikon 80-200 2.8 (push-pull), which is supposedly much sharper than this lens (in the overlapping focal range). Surprise - it isn't!
Summary: I shoot events for a major university. I use a Nikon D3 and just started to spend some real money on glass. Let me tell you the old adage is true. You get what you pay for. That said, the Nikon 24-120mm 3.5 zoom lens is a very good lens for the money.
