Excerpt: Awesome lens. Get great shots that are tack sharp. Use it consistently for animals including my dog, portraits and at weddings. Have not been the wedding photographer in one case the bride was happy that I was there with the lens and camera. They had hired her cousin ....
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: Although it lacks AF-S, this lens focuses fast enough on a D750 for most indoor sports. It is an older lens, but it pairs well with the newer bodies that excel at high ISO. On an FX body, it's good at f2.8 and nearly perfect at f4. On a DX body, it's even better due to the smaller image circle.
Excerpt: I read a lot of reviews in my search for a high end zoom in this range. This lens meets all of my requirements and then some. I am using it mostly on my DX D7100. For me it is plenty fast and easy to use. I do not find the controls a bit uncomfortable to use.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I've used this for live concert photography, and the results have been amazing. I love the set aperture and it does great on video as well!!! Can't wait to use it on future projects!! I don't see the weight as an issue as some have said. I use it with a D750. Couldn't be happier!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO SAY BUT IT BLOW ME AWAY. ULTIMATE RAZOR SHARP. WORK ON AUTOFOCUS WHEN I WANT F/8.0 TO F/11 OR EVEN F/16. I CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT IT. I LOVE IT WITH MY NIKON D2X AND D2XS. NIKON ED-IF 70-200MMF/2.8G VR AFS II ARE SUPERB BUT TOO COSTLY.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: Overall one of my favorite Nikon lenses, first the downside, it is somewhat soft at close distance and 200mm f2.8, it gets really sharp at f5.6. At about 4m or 13 Feet that's not a problem any more. It is actually 200mm unlike the vr-2 version which only goes as far as 135mm on FX.
