Summary: Looking back after five, nearly six years, I can say that buying this lens was a great decision. At the time I felt it was a lot of money and although I had done a lot of research, I was a bit apprehensive. Lens has been used on a Nikon D40x, where it is permanent fixture.

Summary: Great lens. I've been using this lens more then my kit lens. Very sharp and with low light photography it stands better then most lenses out there. It definitely is a step up for a kit lens and it's a great walk around lens. Built strong and heavy.
Summary: Great lens! I am very happy about the image quality and speed of focus. The only thing I dont like is that this is a 3:1 macro lens and not a true 1:1 macro. I am not disappointed in the lens but the purchase of this lens helped me to understand all macro lenses are not the same.
