Summary: I imagine that these authoritative pro-reviewers will not believe this, but I have a 300mm 4-5.6 "D" lens which is 100% identical to the lens pictured in this listing, and it DOES autofocus on my Nikon D5000 camera body. Yes, I know that this would require the "D" lens to have an internal drive just like the newer "G"-series lenses, and no, I do not use hallucinogenic drugs.
Summary: Bokeh isn't bad, but not excellent Sharpness isn't bad, but not excellent Contrast isn't bad, but not excellent Flare resistance isn't bad, but not excellent Sure, it won't equal performance of your primes and it doesn't have VR; but for 150-200 used you really can't beat it. It's really a lens for FX users on a budget. There's the 24-85 mm VR, but that thing USED is 300-400.
Summary: I purchased this lens for my Nikon D700. For the types of shooting I do it is my first choice. It is a great all around lens. The macro portion of the lens could have been designed a little better. Overall this is an excellent lens.
Summary: I only wish it was 18mm instead of 28mm. I find it to be sharp across its zoom range. It has a macro function I still haven't tried yet. Would be five star on an FX rig, as a walk around lens. I bought this, expecting to buy the D600 but decided against it, since the prices never dropped low enough for me to take the plunge. If you have a DX go for the 18-105mm DX kit lens for many.
Summary: The 28-105 f/3.5-4.5D is an outstanding value as an all-purpose utility lens. Use on a full frame camera is desirable, but it functions quite well on a Dx body, too. The 3.75x zoom range is adequate for most situations, and the added 1:2 macro capability makes the lens an exceptional value. Not to mention it is incredibly sharp at all usable apertures.
Summary: I am very pleased with product and seller. I wish I could give a more a detailed description and specs with the lens but I am novice. But the pics I have taken have come out really good and the condition of the lens was in great condition when i received it.
Summary: Not the fastest, but for daytime shooting where you don't need super-fast apertures, it's great. I like to travel light and it's the only lens I use on my old Nikon FM2. It will autofocus, but it's not VR. I have yet to try it on my Nikon F100, which is an autofocus film camera. Distortion appears very low at 28mm. For about $150, you really can't go too wrong.
